Contact info for FAA Waiver Dept?

Recommended Posts

I’ve been waiting for more than 90 days for three different airspace waivers I’ve applied for. I contact my FSDO office to inquire on my Waivers. He said I must go thru the waiver portal. Waiver portal? Is that a automated request form only? Any suggestions on who to contact with waiver questions?

If you applied for a waiver you probably have another couple of months to wait. Waivers take a lot longer than authorization request to get approved.

Well no response from email. I did get an email rep once to my phone message I left them.

 

“Hello.  You called and asked about the status of your Part 107 airspace request.

 

The FAA asks for your patience as the sheer volume of UAS Airspace requests has placed an overload on the FAA resources processing these requests. Airspace Authorizations take on average 90 business days to process. Airspace. This timeframe depends on volume received, complexity of the request, and accuracy of the information provided.”

Don't expect instant replies. This is the government you are dealing with.
