Petition for Exemption or Rulemaking FAQ

A petition for exemption is a request by an individual or entity for relief from the requirements of a regulation in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR). The FAA may grant an exemption if it is in public interest and provides an equivalent level of safety. See 49 U.S.C. § 44701(f) and 14 CFR § 11.81(e).
