Petition for Exemption
Docket No.: FAA-2006-25049.
Petitioner: American Airlines, Inc.
Section of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR 121.619.
Description of Relief Sought: To amend American Airlines, Inc. (American), current Exemption No. 9570, which grants relief to American; American certificated dispatchers; and American pilots in command from 14 CFR 121.619 to the extent necessary to dispatch aircraft to domestic airports without designating an alternate for the destination airport where for at least 1 hour before and 1 hour after the estimated time of arrival at the destination airport the appropriate weather reports or forecasts, or any combination of them, indicate the ceiling will be at least 1,000 feet above the airport elevation and visibility will be at least 3 statute miles, subject to certain conditions and limitations. Condition No. 3 of that exemption states, Operations under this exemption are limited to only those airports at which an operable Category I Instrument Landing System (CAT I ILS) procedure with published minimums of 200 feet and runway visual range (RVR) 2,000 or lower is available for use if needed. The amendment American seeks would revise Condition No. 3 to limit operations under this exemption to airports at which an operable CAT I ILS procedure with published minimums of 300 feet and RVR of 4,000 feet or lower is available. Additionally, American seeks to amend Condition No. 4. This condition, states, in pertinent part, that the dispatch release will contain a statement for each flight dispatched under this exemption of “ALTERNATE WEATHER EXEMPTION APPLIED. REFERENCE [insert name of appropriate document].” American wishes to revise the statement to read “ALTN WX EXEMPTION APPLIED.”End Further Info End Preamble
