Petition for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2016-8684.

Petitioner: Douglas Myers.

Section(s) of 14 CFR Affected: § 107.65.

Description of Relief Sought: The petitioner, a Certificated Flight Instructor, requests relief from 14 CFR 107.65, which provides that a holder of a part 61 pilot certificate (other than student pilot) may establish aeronautical knowledge recency by meeting the flight review requirements specified in § 61.56 within the previous 24 months and completing either an initial or recurrent training course covering the areas of knowledge specified in § 107.74(a) or (b) in a manner acceptable to the Administrator. The petitioner proposes instead that he, and others similarly situated, be permitted to establish aeronautical knowledge recency by holding an unexpired flight instructor certificate and completing a flight instructor refresher course in accordance with 14 CFR 61.197(a).
