Petition for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2015-2192.

Petitioner: William Robertson.

Section(s) of 14 CFR Affected: §§ 61.153(e), 61.165(f)(1), and (2).

Description of Relief Sought: William Robertson holds an airline transport pilot (ATP) certificate in the airplane category with a single engine class rating and seeks relief to add a multiengine class rating to his ATP certificate without complying with the training and knowledge testing requirements. Based upon previous academic training, flight training, and professional pilot experience, the petitioner seeks exemption from § 61.153(e), which requires applicants seeking an ATP certificate in the airplane category with a multiengine class rating to complete the training required in § 61.156 before applying for the knowledge test required by § 61.153(g). In addition, the petitioner seeks exemption from §§ 61.165(f)(1) and (2), which require an applicant seeking to add a multiengine class rating to an ATP certificate with a single engine class rating to meet the eligibility requirements of § 61.153 and pass a knowledge test on the aeronautical knowledge areas of § 61.155(c) as applicable to multiengine airplanes.
