In mid-December 2015, the FAA issued updated regulations for TSA Waivers for aircraft under 100,309 lbs (45,500 kg) MTOW with NOTAM 5/6289. Following great concerns from operators regarding previous exemptions for “portal countries” no longer reflected in the updated regulations, the FAA released NOTAMs 6/4255, 6/4256 and 6/4260 to reinstate the previously granted special considerations. We have broken down the major points released in these regulatory changes below:TSA Waiver NOT Required:
Please Note: Previous TSA Waiver requirements for foreign registered aircraft with a MTOW over 100,309 lbs (45,500 kg) have not changed with the regulatory changes released in these NOTAMs.
For additional requirements for aircraft over 100,309 lbs., refer to NOTAMs 5/5782 and 5/5806.
PDF copies of the original FDC NOTAMs are available on the FAA website.
