TSA Assumes Responsibility for Notam Waivers

 - April 23, 2008, 6:22 AM

Last month, the FAA handed off notam waiver requests to the Transportation Security Administration. Existing FAA-issued waivers will continue to be valid, but now operators requesting permission to conduct operations not permitted by existing notams should send their waiver requests to TSA. The security agency will also handle requests from international Part 91 operators for waivers to the designated “portal” countries notam.
