Part 125 Waiver Notice Revised

 - January 19, 2007, 10:19 AM

New FAA Notice N8000.345 provides revised guidance for obtaining Letters of Deviation Authority (LODA), applicable to operators of corporate jetliners (such as the ACJ and BBJ) requesting a waiver from Part 125 to operate under Part 91. Full or blanket deviations are no longer authorized, but the FAA might allow deviations from certain sections of Part 125. Also, the new notice requires that by June 21 each LODA holder must submit a “written plan” that outlines how it will comply with the requirements of each section of Part 125 and operators must comply with the requirements no later than March 31 next year.
