ARSA Works: FAA Clarifies Contested FSDO Policy

On April 7, the FAA responded to a January 17th letter sent by ARSA to the North Texas Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) contesting the requirement that requests for action be submitted in hard copy.

In its response, the FAA agreed that the FSDO manual—which stated that projects were opened upon receipt of hard copy requests—could “easily be misinterpreted and misapplied.” The North Texas FDSO will now amend its documentation to include procedures to process electronic submissions.
