Authorizations from Title 14, Code of

Federal Regulations (14 CFR)

a. 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


b. 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.

c. 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.

4−1−23. Weather System Processor

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.
