The AW609 is a tiltrotor aircraft manufactured by Augusta Westland. Because the AW609 opearates as a helicopter for takeoff and landing, and as an airplane for other flight, AWPC asserts that potential operators of the AW609, require exemption(s) from those sections of 14 CFR that reference ‘‘airplane,’’ ‘‘airplanes,’’ ‘‘rotorcraft,’’ ‘‘rotor,’’ ‘‘fixed-wing,’’ ‘‘fixed-wing aircraft,’’ ‘‘copter,’’ ‘‘helicopter,’’ ‘‘AFM, propeller and airplane/rotorcraft flight manuals’’. AWPC describes the AW609 as a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft that is essentially a helicopter from a flight characteristics and performance standpoint. AWPC believes that relief through the exemption process will enable sales of tiltrotor aircraft, which will contribute to the balance-of-trade, the gross domestic product and economic health of the United States. AWPC also asserts the level of safety is not compromised in comparison to similar helicopter operations, and that granting this relief is in the public’s interest and maintains that an acceptable equivalent level of safety will exist by substituting the term tiltrotor or aircraft for helicopter and other specific terms that exist in the regulations listed above.
