Petition for Exemption

Docket No.: FAA-2020-0528.

Petitioner: Delta Engineering.

Section(s) of 14 CFR Affected: §§ 25.855, 25.857, and 25.858.

Description of Relief Sought: Delta Engineering is seeking relief from certain fire protection requirements in order to obtain supplemental type certificate approval of a type design change for multiple airplane models from multiple airplane manufacturers. The type design change would allow the airplane operators to remove passenger seats to transport cargo, subject to the FAA's conditions, on the floor of the main deck of transport category airplanes without revenue passengers onboard. COVID-19 has dramatically reduced the demand for commercial air travel. Due to this extreme reduction in demand, passenger carriers now have the capacity to carry cargo, including critical medical cargo, in-cabin. The relief that would be provided by this exemption would also support the need to replace the cargo capacity provided on airplanes normally flown by passenger carriers.
