There are plenty of threads on "delays to initial posting" and §333 exemption request content, syntax and requirements. Curious as to recent personal experience regarding timelines after open comment posting. Based on my recent database surveying, it's looking like about 90-days after initial posting (opening of the comment period) before you can expect your exemption to be granted (60-days after the closing of the comment period). Is this the experience of recent exemption recipients? I have already reserved N-numbers, registered and placarded the aircraft. I am turning down well-paying jobs weekly, and my unregistered/unlicensed competition is gladly accepting my turned-away business with open arms (by the way, the FAA isn't even responding violation reports/complaints at this time). To echo the masses, these delays are ludicrous. No wonder so many (otherwise) honest folks are being forced to operate "illegally" while the FAA plays paper-shuffle. In addition, in order for us to collect compensation (of any type or amount), we must give up abilities afforded to a 12-year old hobbyist (reduced altitude allowances, daytime flight only, etc.). "Look not for logic here." Have a great weekend, everyone!
