Petition for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2013-0322.

Petitioner: The Boeing Company.

Sections of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR 25.981(a)(3) and 25.901(c).

Description of Relief Sought: To allow installation of the improved fuel pump electrical connector independently of the Fault Current Detector (FCD) or conversely, to allow installation of the FCD independently of the improved electrical connector. The FCD will provide an overall fuel pump electrical circuit. It includes the fuel pump electrical connector and will provide protection against ignition sources as required by the Equivalent Level of Safety (ELOS) and § 25.901(c), Amendment 25-46. Boeing seeks this exemption until such time as both the FCD and the electrical connector are installed. Compliance to Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 88 for the identified unsafe condition at a fuel system level will be achieved at that time.
