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, Policy.
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.
Coordination with Rules and Regulations Group must be obtained before denying extensions that pertain to structures that are subject to FCC licensing authority.
Normally, one extension for a period of 18 months may be granted, unless the sponsor requests a shorter period.
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.
