OK, a question for the experts on the board concerning inflatable raft requirements. I am familiar with what the FAR's say about raft requirements for 135 flights over water. But my question is this: What about when I start heading into the different foreign airspaces as I head down the island thread. Are the ICAO regs different, I seem to recall reading something about a 40% overage rule. I looked at our raft today and it said 8 persons or 12 if overloaded...why? Please help. Also are any of you doing flights down the atlantic routes where RSVM is in effect at FL410 to get over it?
