Petition for Waiver of Compliance, 19689 [2021-07654]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 70 / Wednesday, April 14, 2021 / Notices Issued in Des Moines, Washington, on March 31, 2021. Daniel J. Elgas, Manager, Strategic Policy Management Branch, Policy and Innovation Division, Aircraft Certification Service. Petition For Exemption Docket No.: FAA–2020–1057. Petitioner: B/E Aerospace—FSI. Section(s) of 14 CFR Affected: §§ 25.813(e) and 121.310(f)(6). Description of Relief Sought: B/E Aerospace—FSI is seeking relief from the requirement that no door may be installed between any passenger seat that is occupiable for takeoff and landing and any passenger emergency exit, such that the door crosses any egress path (including aisles, crossaisles and passageways), as well as the requirement that no person may operate an airplane that incorporates a door installed between any passenger seat occupiable for takeoff and landing and any passenger emergency exit. The petitioner is proposing to install expandable monuments at emergency exits on Boeing Model 777 and Model 787 airplanes and Airbus Model A330 and Model A350 airplanes. The expandable monument is a modular transforming-unit that exploits underutilized areas in the cabin by expanding to provide additional usable space. This is achieved by taking advantage of unused space, unfolding in-flight to provide additional service areas. When the modular units are deployed, they block the emergency exits and the attendant seats, located at the exits.
