Petition for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2010-0832. Petitioner: Air Transport Association of America, the National Air Carrier Association, and the Regional Airline Association.

Section of 14 CFR Affected: § 121.803(c)(3) and Appendix A to part 121.

Description of Relief Sought: The Air Transport Association of America, Inc., the National Air Carrier Association, and the Regional Airline Association, on behalf of their passenger airline members, request a limited exemption from § 121.803(c)(3) which requires airplanes with seating capacity for more than nine passengers to carry an Emergency Medical Kit (EMK) with contents as specified in Appendix A to part 121. Specifically the petitioners seek approval to use substitutes (as available) for two of the required medications-epinephrine 1:10,000, 2 cc, injectable, (single dose ampule or equivalent) and dextrose, 50%/50 cc injectable, (single dose ampule or equivalent). Due to a manufacturing shortfall, supplies are currently unavailable to restock EMKs. The shortage is expected to be limited in duration; therefore the petitioners request an expedited exemption only through November 1, 2010 or until this situation has been resolved.
