Send me a copy of your application!!! I have applied three times and declined three times. I was told on the last one when I called to ask what the deal was, trying to be legal and do the right thing and you don't work with us. She told me to go to a website and complete all of the information it asked for. I copied and pasted everything into my request with the responses and still got rejected.

Send me a copy of your application!!! I have applied three times and declined three times. I was told on the last one when I called to ask what the deal was, trying to be legal and do the right thing and you don't work with us. She told me to go to a website and complete all of the information it asked for. I copied and pasted everything into my request with the responses and still got rejected.

PM me. It took me about 2-3 months (one round of questions) lots of procedure and specifics. Details about gear/drone/lights and light placement, safety protocols and procedures, preflight visits/planning...use of VOs and crew training but only way to ensure that they will be satisfied.

It is also Class G airspace...It is in the airspace of a few helipads and a small regional airfield but I also kept my altitude to a max of 200 AGL and addressed emergency procedure if a manned aircraft or even ground traffic entered the area in my proposal. I think it is a consideration of all of those factors.

Happy to help you with yours.

Thanks. I am wondering if they are going to finalize on the new regs and do away with the night restrictions.

Looks like I included everything that you mentioned and also in Class G airspace and only for search and rescue. I think the only thing I left out was to include the addition of lights visible for 3 miles, which I have but failed to mention on my last submission.

Yeah...the lights, how you mount and specs are all pretty important. I bet that is the reason they kicked it back.

I hope the new regs pass and fix this too but in the meantime I am working with the system we have.

I am thanks. I have heard of people hiring people to do this but I figured that if I am able to do it myself...I just added another skill...navigating the government swamp...LOL

It will probably be a month or two. I still need to actually buy my lights. I initially was going to buy them but then I thought...I only need them "if" I get the waiver...so I mentioned them and specified them in my application...which color, placement...mounting, etc. I have sorted that all out but without the waiver...I really don't need them.

LOL now I do.
