Sounds like good news, but aren't you a bit premature to announce this? It will put some pressure on CAA, but also on MFNZ who will do everything to stop this exemption. You have told us before, some relations are pretty close between those two orgs.
On the other hand, if you get that exemption, I'd expect them to make to reinstate your wings too. (if they are good losers.., maybe not then).
