Petition for Exemption

Petitioner: Air Tractor, Inc.

Section of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR 23.1001.

Description of Relief Sought: To allow Air Tractor Inc. to modify ten model AT-802s with fuselage fuel tanks without meeting the fuel jettison maximum weight demonstration, fuel discharges clear of any part of the aircraft, and fuel or fumes do not enter any parts of the airplane requirements Start Printed Page 32838in § 23.1001(b), (c)(2), and (c)(3). Air Tractor, Inc. proposes conducting the maximum weight demonstration at 13,000 pounds or more versus the model AT 802 certificated weight of 16,000 pounds because the agricultural hopper removal will reduce the weight of the modified model AT-802. Air Tractor, Inc. also proposes using red dye water instead of fuel for the jettison test to conserve resources.
