Petitions for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2004-18747.

Petitioner: Lockheed Martin Aircraft Center.

Section of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR 25.807.

Description of Relief Sought: Lockheed Martin Aircraft Center petitions for exemption from the requirements of 14 CFR 25.807 regarding emergency exits. Specifically, the requirements for overwing exits per paragraph g(1) and per ditching requirements of paragraph i(1). The Gulfstream Model GV-SP (G550) is equipped with a left, forward entry door/exit, and 2 pairs of 19 × 26-inch ellipse overwing exits approved under an equivalent safety finding. All of the exits combined are rated for a maximum of 19 passengers. The proposed modification will leave the forward entry door/exit unchanged; a fairing is added to the outside of the fuselage, which covers both pairs of the overwing exits. The forward pair of overwing exists will be disabled. The aft pair of overwing exits will remain and not be modified. The added fairing will have a hatch provided in it to allow use of the aft pair of overwing exits from both the inside and the outside. All of the active exits combined in this new configuration will be rated for a maximum of 6 passengers.
