−1−22. Requests for Waivers and

Authorizations from Title 14, Code of
Federal Regulations (14 CFR)


Requests for a Certificate of Waiver or

Authorization (FAA Form 7711

−2), or requests for

renewal of a waiver or authorization, may be accepted
by any FAA facility and will be forwarded, if
necessary, to the appropriate office having waiver


The grant of a Certificate of Waiver or

Authorization from 14 CFR constitutes relief from
specific regulations, to the degree and for the period
of time specified in the certificate, and does not waive
any state law or local ordinance.  Should the proposed
operations conflict with any state law or local
ordinance, or require permission of local authorities
or property owners, it is the applicant’s responsibility
to resolve the matter. The holder of a waiver is
responsible for compliance with the terms of the
waiver and its provisions.


A waiver may be canceled at any time by the

Administrator, the person authorized to grant the
waiver, or the representative designated to monitor a
specific operation. In such case either written notice
of cancellation, or written confirmation of a verbal
cancellation will be provided to the holder.

The Weather System Processor (WSP) was devel-
oped for use in the National Airspace System to
provide weather processor enhancements to selected
Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR)

−9 facilities. The

WSP provides Air Traffic with warnings of
hazardous wind shear and microbursts. The WSP also
provides users with terminal area 6

−level weather,

storm cell locations and movement, as well as the
location and predicted future position and intensity of
wind shifts that may affect airport operations.
