Docket No.: FAA-2001-11155.

Petitioner: The Boeing Company.

Section of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR 25.961(a)(5).

Description of Relief Sought:

Boeing is requesting relief from the requirements of 14 CFR 25.961(a)(5) for JP-4 and Jet B fuel usage on 757-300 airplanes powered by Pratt & Whitney engines. The regulation requires that the airplane and engines perform satisfactorily with the critical fuel at a temperature of at least 110°F. Boeing requests that FAA approve a set of limitations for JP-4 and Jet B fuels on the Pratt & Whitney powered 757-300 in lieu of compliance with the specified temperature of 110°F. The limitations consist of restricting the fuel temperature to 85°F, restricting the initial cruise altitude vs. fuel temperature, and restricting JP-4 and Jet B fuels to the main tanks only.
