Petitions for Exemption
Docket No.: FAA-2005-23030.
Petitioner: Czech Aircraft Works, S.R.O.
Section of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR 21.190.
Description of Relief Sought: Petitioner seeks an exemption permitting Czech Aircraft Works, S.R.O. to be issued a special airworthiness certificate in the light-sport category for its Mermaid aircraft. The petitioner requires this exemption because the Mermaid aircraft is an amphibious aircraft equipped with landing gear that can be retracted and extended while in flight. The FAA also seeks specific comments on the operation of this aircraft by sport pilots and the ability of such aircraft to withstand improper use of the landing gear, such as landing on water with the landing gear in the “down” position.End Further Info End Preamble
