*As stipulated in the Terms and Conditions section we are unfortunately not able to guarantee FAA approval. While we have had success in earning a night waiver with our system, changes in policy, FAA representative interpretation and safety considerations may result in the denied application for a COW. It is typical that after COW application submitted to the FAA they may respond with a request for clarification and addition information. Your response to FAA follow up questions is critical: It's important to be engaged in the process and not miss FAA response deadlines (typically 30 days) as the application will have to be re-started from the beginning. For success we suggest adhering to the parameters set-forth in the package guidelines. Applications outside of the template may be denied by the FAA and therefore not a reflection on the system.

It is also important to carefully read and implement the guidelines set forth in the Night Waiver Package. The Administrator (a.k.a. FAA) or other approved agency can request review of required documentation (such as training documents, flight crew list, aircraft information, etc.). Keep in mind that, if approved, a waiver has an expiration (typically two years) and must be re-applied for if applicable upon expiration. The FAA reserves the right to revoke a night waiver for such as a safety concern, changes in regulation/policy, or if a Remote Pilot (RP) Pilot in Command (PIC) is found to have acted in a way contrary to the night waiver or Part 107.
