Petitions For Exemption

docket No.: FAA-20000-8016 (Old Docket Number 30040)

Petitioner: Jerry L. Adams, et al

Section of the FAR Affected: 14 CFR 121.383(c)

Description of Relief Sought: To permit 69 airline pilots seeking exemptions from the age 60 rule, to serve as pilots in air carrier operations after their sixtieth birthdays, subject to appropriate periodic proficiency and fitness requirements, and based on the recommendation of the Age 60 Exemption Panel. (The Age 60 Exemption Panel was formed privately in 1999 to evaluate the medical/neuropsychological status of airline pilots seeking exemptions from the age 60 rule. It was not formed or supervised by the FAA.) This request for exemption was originally denied on July 30, 2000, Docket No. 30040. The petition for exemption is reopened for public comment and reconsideration by the FAA. Personal medical records submitted in support of the petition are not included in the public docket.
