FAA Issues WebOPSS Access Workaround

The FAA will miss the June 15 deadline for updating its WebOPSS system to operate in the Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft will decommission Internet Explorer, which was required for accessing the system, so the agency has distributed guidance providing an access workaround to allow time to update to the new standard. 

This action must be taken before June 15: Industry users who access WebOPSS from outside the FAA network must configure their Microsoft Edge browser to “Internet Explorer Compatibility View.” Internet Explore must remain installed for this view to function; do not uninstall it (or allow your IT department to uninstall it).

Instructions for configuring a Windows 10 PC for WebOPSS from outside the FAA network are found on the AFS-260 Technical Programs Section website. Industry users needing assistance should contact AFS-WebOPSS@faa.gov.
