Did you know that you can apply for an exemption to a Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR)? The rulemaking process is governed by Part 11 of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). If you are affected by a regulation in 14 CFR, you may petition for an exemption from any rule issued by the FAA under its statutory authority. The petition for exemption can be submittd via mail or the internet. The FAA requests operators to petition at least 120 days in advance of needing the exemption. A petition for exemption must include the specific sections of 14 CFR from which you seek an exemption, the extent of/scope of the exemption, as well as a brief description of the reason you seek the relief. Further information can be found on the FAA’s website.
