DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AL72 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Revise Airplane Definition to Incorporate Powered-lift Operations 

This action would propose a Special Federal Aviation Regulation for alternate eligibility requirements to safely certificate initial groups of powered-lift pilots, as well as determine which operating rules to apply to powered-lift aircraft on a temporary basis to enable the FAA to gather additional information and determine the most appropriate permanent rulemaking path for these aircraft. Powered-lift will be type certificated as special class aircraft under the existing regulations. Currently, there is not an established path for the initial group of civilian powered-lift pilots to obtain the required experience to obtain a pilot certificate and powered-lift have not been conceptualized into the general and commercial operating regulations.
