FAA to Launch Online Portal Where Small Drone Operators Can Request Waivers

Drone (1)The Federal Aviation Administration will launch an online portal that drone operators may use to request waivers of applicable regulations regarding the new small drone rule.

The FAA said Monday the rule formally known as Part 107 will allow operators to expand operations based on technology mitigations if they can make the safety case for a waiver of some provisions.

Drone users that apply for waivers may operate at night, beyond line of sight, above 400 feet and other specific types of operations.

The FAA added in a separate post that it encourages interested participants to apply as soon as possible because requests will be processed depending on the complexity and the volume of applications received by the administration.
