Petition for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2011-1220.

Petitioner: Indigenous Peoples Technology and Education Center, Inc. (ITEC).

Section of 14 CFR Affected:

14 CFR part 21, § 21.191(i)

Description of Relief Sought: The relief sought would permit an additional weight allowance for operation of a powered parachute (PPC), experimental light-sport aircraft (ELSA), intended for flight operations and operation on public roadways, similar to the weight allowance for LSA intended for operation on water. An exemption would enable ITEC to issue a statement of compliance (FAA Form 8130-15) for each ITEC “Maverick” PPC ELSA “kit” for operation at the same weight prescribed for LSA intended for operation on water. In addition, the relief sought would allow any ITEC “Maverick” PPC special category LSA (SLSA) to be converted to ELSA for operation in accordance with § 21.191(i)(3).
