Webinar: FAA Tips for Receiving a Part 107 Waiver
Monday, December 12, 2016, 03:30pm - 04:30pm

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) began issuing Part 107 waivers and airspace authorizations to drone operators starting August 29, 2016, the effective date of the new rule. As of October 24, 2016, the agency had approved 81 authorizations for flights in Class D and E airspace, and has issued 36 waivers of Part 107 provisions to drone operators who applied after the rule’s effective date.

However, the agency has found that many applications have incorrect or incomplete information. Many applicants request too many waivers or request waivers for flights in types of airspace for which the FAA is not yet granting approvals. As a result, the agency has had to reject numerous waiver requests and airspace applications.

In an effort to help educate current and future applicants, AUVSI and Earl Lawrence are teaming up for a webinar to clarify the process and information requirements for Part 107 waivers and airspace authorizations. This informative session is intended to help reduce the number rejections that are being issued and ensure the right information is included for either process in order to help expedite approvals.
