Disposition of Petitions

Docket No.: 26158
Petitioner: Everett W. Morris
Sections of the FAR Affected: 14 CFR 121
Description of Rulechange Sought: To add a new section that would 
require that each large turbine-powered airplane be equipped with a 
takeoff warning system that meets the requirements of 14 CFR 
Sec. 25.703.
Petitioner's Reason for the Request: The petitioner feels amending the 
operating rule can provide an earlier required compliance date, thus 
reducing the probability of future accidents caused by improper 
configuration of the airplane. Denial; November 15, 1996

Docket No.: 27371
Petitioner: Homeowners of Encino
Sections of the FAR Affected: 14 CFR 91.119(d)
Description of Rulechange Sought: To limit helicopter operations below 
the minimum altitudes prescribed in Sec. 91/119 (b) and (c) except for 
helicopters operated by any municipal, county, State, or Federal 
authority for emergency services, rescue operations, or police or fire 
Petitioner's Reason for the Request: The petitioner feels that the 
petition for reconsideration of a previous denial of petition for 
rulemaking was justified in that the FAA failed to make a reasonable 
determination of the facts and issues in the original petition for 
rulemaking. Denial; October 31, 1996

Docket No.: 27803
Petitioner: Air Transportation Association of America
Sections of the FAR Affected: 14 CFR 121, 135, and 145
Description of Rulechange Sought: To establish regulations requiring 
quality/inspection systems for all aircraft parts distributors, 
suppliers, sellers, brokers, and surplus dealers.
Petitioner's Reason for the Request: The petitioner feels that it is 
imperative that every step possible be taken to ensure no opportunity 
is available to introduce an unapproved part into the parts 
distribution/supply system and there must be regulations which help 
deter and remove unethical organizations from the aircraft parts 
business. Denial; November 25, 1996.
