As of April 27, a new DOT Part 375 rule provides that certain types of operation by U.S.-registered foreign civil business aircraft (such as carrying the company’s own officials and guests, or aircraft time-sharing, interchange or joint ownership arrangements) do not constitute operations “for remuneration or hire and, therefore, do not require a DOT permit.”

Under the old rules, many U.S.-registered foreign-owned aircraft were required to obtain a “foreign aircraft permit” to use the joint-ownership, interchange and charge-back provisions of FAR 91.501. The new rules are in response to a petition from NBAA.
