14 CFR Part 107 Wavers

14 CFR 107 Subpart D establishes certain regulations that the FAA can issue wavers for. The Waver System has been part of FAA rulemaking for many years. While no one can be sure until the FAA begins to issue Wavers, It is likely that the Waver program will be similar to Wavers issued for manned aircraft Operations. Typically the FAA will establish a set of parameters that must be met for an operator to be issued a Waver. In order to receive the Waver, the applicant must apply for the waver and prove they meet the established parameters (Typically by documented Operational Procedures & Manuals).The FAA has indicated that they anticipate the Waver application process will be available online.


A certificate of waiver may authorize a deviation from the following regulations of this part:

  1. 107.25 – Operation from a moving vehicle or aircraft. However, no waiver of this provision will be issued to allow the carriage of property of another by aircraft for compensation or hire.
  2. 107.29 – Daylight operation.
  3. 107.31 – Visual line of sight aircraft operation. However, no waiver of this provision will be issued to allow the carriage of property of another by aircraft for compensation or hire.
  4. 107.33 – Visual observer.
  5. 107.35 – Operation of multiple small unmanned aircraft systems.
  6. 107.37(a) – Yielding the right of way.
  7. 107.39 – Operation over people.
  8. 107.41 – Operation in certain airspace.
  9. 107.51 – Operating limitations for small unmanned aircraft.


AeroUAVs anticipates that the Waver Program will be what will allow cutting edge operations like Beyond Line of Sight Operations to begin in the near future.
