A few weeks ago, we talked about obtaining a night waiver from the FAA. Specifically, we offered some advice on getting a waiver to fly at night if you don’t know the specific details of the operation.
At the time, it was relatively easy to obtain a waiver from the FAA (even without details like the specific drone or location). However, some things have changed. Obtaining a daytime waiver to fly at night has become a more detailed process. Now, the portal asks you to be more specific in your request.
Take a look at the updated portal and enjoy the episode. Fly safe!
