Petition for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2019-0733.

Petitioner: Daniel Orcutt.

Section(s) of 14 CFR Affected: § 121.436(a)(3).

Description of Relief Sought: Section 121.436(a)(3) requires that prior to serving as Pilot-in-Command (PIC) in part 121 operations, a pilot must have 1,000 hours while operating under one of the following conditions: Second-in Command (SIC) under part 121 operations, PIC under § 91.1053(a)(2)(i) operations, PIC under § 135.243(a)(1) operations, or any combination thereof. Section 121.436(c) allows for 500 hours of military flight time to be credited toward the 1,000 flight hour requirement of § 121.436(a)(3), provided the flight time was obtained as PIC of a multiengine turbine-powered, fixed-wing airplane in an operation requiring more than one pilot. Mr. Daniel J. Orcutt seeks an exemption from § 121.436(a)(3) and (c) to allow use of his military PIC experience to fulfill the 1,000 hours as SIC under part 121 operations requirement.
