Section 2. Extension of Determinations
The FAA official issuing
a determination has the delegated authority to grant an extension. Where a
petition for an extension generates public interest or controversy, the OEG must
inform the office of Mission Support, Airspace Services.
An extension may be
granted provided the request is timely (received by the FAA 15 days before the
determination expires) and a review of aeronautical activity shows no
significant adverse effect resulting from a change that has occurred since the
determination was issued. In the event a request for extension to the expiration
date cannot be granted based on new facts, a “Determination of Hazard to Air
Navigation" should be issued effective on the day following the expiration date
of the no hazard determination.
Airspace Regulations and ATC Procedures Group must be obtained before denying
extensions that pertain to structures that are subject to FCC licensing
7-2-4. EXTENSION PERIOD
Normally, one extension for a period of 18
months may be granted, unless the sponsor requests a shorter period.
7-2-5. REVIEW PROVISIONS
If an extension is
granted on a DNH, petition rights apply, and therefore, each such extension must
contain a statement advising of the petition period, the effective date, and the
new expiration date.
Distribution must be
accomplished in accordance with paragraph 7-1-7.
