Section 2. Extension of Determinations

7-2-1. AUTHORITY

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 OES must inform the office of Mission Support, Airspace Services.

7-2-2. CONDITIONS

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.

7-2-3. COORDINATION

Coordination with Airspace Regulations and ATC Procedures Group must be obtained before denying extensions that pertain to structures that are subject to FCC licensing authority.

7-2-4. EXTENSION PERIOD

Normally, an extension should be for a period of 18 months, unless the sponsor requests a shorter period.

7-2-5. REVIEW PROVISIONS FOR PETITION

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.

7-2-6. DISTRIBUTION

Distribution must be accomplished in accordance with paragraph 7-1-7.
