Last FAA approved Airspace Waiver 9-11-17


Recommended Posts

Did some checking before I call (good luck right) the FAA to ask about my 9 month old airspace waiver (107.41) requests. I posted the question here “has the FAA stopped granting airspace waivers”? Someone said they were still granting waivers. The FAA granted waivers database shows that the last waiver was granted 9/11/17. That’s six months ago. Assuming people are putting in requests regularly the FAA has halted granting airspace waivers.

The FAA has been bad when it comes to clarifying the difference between an airspace authorization and an airspace waiver, and why you'd want one vs. the other. Here's the current language as it stands is a reader supposed to interpret when to apply for one vs. the other. The expectations need to be a lot simpler here.

This is straight from the FAADroneZone Part 107 portal when you're beginning your application:
