PETITIONS FOR EXEMPTION
Docket No.: FAA-2008-0370.
Petitioner: Federal Express Corporation.
Section of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR 121.651(b)(2).
Description of Relief Sought: FedEx seeks an exemption from § 121.651(b)(2) which would allow for a FAA-certified Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) equipped FedEx aircraft and a properly trained FedEx flight crew to continue an approach past the final approach fix, or where the final approach fix is not used, begin the final approach segment of a straight-in instrument approach procedure—even if the latest weather report for that airport issued by the U.S. National Weather Service, a source approved by the Administrator, reports the visibility to be less than the visibility minimums for that procedure.End Further Info End Supplemental Information
