to that provided by the rule from 
which you seek the exemption; 

(f) A summary we can publish in the 





, stating: 

(1) The rule from which you seek the 

exemption; and 

(2) A brief description of the nature 

of the exemption you seek; 

(g) Any additional information, views 

or arguments available to support your 
request; and 

(h) If you want to exercise the privi-

leges of your exemption outside the

§ 11.83

How can I operate under an ex-

emption outside the United States? 

If you want to be able to operate 

under your exemption outside the 
United States, you must request this 
when you petition for relief and give us 
the reason for this use. If you do not 
provide your reason or we determine 
that it does not justify this relief, we 
will limit your exemption to use within 
the United States. Before we extend 
your exemption for use outside the 
United States, we will verify that the 
exemption would be in compliance with 
the Standards of the International 
Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). If 
it would not, but we still believe it 
would be in the public interest to allow 
you to do so, we will file a difference 
with ICAO. However, a foreign country 
still may not allow you to operate in 
that country without meeting the 
ICAO standard.

lish a summary of my petition for 

The FAA may not publish a summary 

of your petition for exemption and re-
quest comments if you present or we 
find good cause why we should not 
delay action on your petition. The fac-
tors we consider in deciding not to re-
quest comment include:

lowed for comments in the F
