Has anyone here received approval for a COA in less than 60 days? This is the singlemost frustrating process in the business. I just had a client call and cancel a job, he got tired of waiting. The sad part of it is that he'll go get a neighborhood kid and get the video he wanted, illegally. Wonder if the FAA people understand their foot dragging encourages more lawless flying? I know aviation and airports (commercial pilot's license). It doesn't take 60 days to glance at the copy of the sectional chart we have to submit, and determine if the flight, under 200 feet and away from any approach path (4 NM miles away) can be performed safely. FAA, if you are reading this, get off the dime! Your bureaucratic delays are encouraging flights outside the rules.
