Petitions for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2002-11986.

Petitioner: Experimental Aircraft Association.

Section of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR § 61.113(a).

Description of Relief Sought: EAA currently holds Exemption No. 7830 that allows volunteer pilots flying EAA Young Eagles to “log flight time”, a form of compensation , when flying children during these free flight experiences. The exemption also allows volunteer pilots to receive other types of compensation. This amendment would permit the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) to include the use of light-sport aircraft with a special light-sport certificate under this exemption. EAA also requests that an addition is made to the current condition and limitation that permits a pilot to hold at least a private pilot certificate. They request that the pilot be able to hold a recreational pilot, or a sport pilot certificate with the appropriate category, class, type-rating, or logbook endorsement, if necessary, for the aircraft to be used under this exemption in accordance with § 61.31(a), (d), (e), (f), (h), (i), and part 61 subpart D, E, or J as appropriate. The pilots who conduct the Young Eagle flights for EAA under this exemption Start Printed Page 56216are required to hold a third-class medical certificate in accordance with § 61.23(a)(3); however, EAA is requesting that a private pilot, recreational pilot, or sport pilot be required to hold a current medical certificate appropriate to the pilot certificate held in accordance with § 61.23(a)(3)(i), § 61.23(a)(3)(ii), or § 61.23(c)(1)(ii).
