Issued in Washington, DC, on February 10, 2009. Pamela Hamilton-Powell, Director, Office of Rulemaking. Petitions for Exemption

Docket No.:FAA-2009-0040.

Petitioner:Cirrus Design Corporation.

Section of 14 CFR Affected:14 CFR, part 23, SS 23.1419(a).

Description of Relief Sought:To allow the Cirrus Model SR22 to be certified for flight into known icing without meeting the 61 knot stall speed requirement in SS 23.1419(a). Cirrus Design Corporation states, in their request for exemption letter, that the increased safety associated with the operational envelope expansion, without a negative impact on aircraft utility, is in the public interest. Cirrus Design Corporation states that the Model SR22 has the compensating factors listed in paragraph 13.a.(c) of Advisory Circular 23.1419-2D, dated April 19, 2007, and,

therefore, the level of safety will not be adversely affected by this exemption.
