    Class D Airspace request submitted via online portal for KBFI operations. Let's see how long it takes and the outcome.

    Nice. Where are you going to be, at the airport itself or near by? (I assume you aren't south or else you'd be submitting one for SeaTac.)

    DENIED

    well back to the drawing board. Resubmitted the request today. Maybe I will get a different person to review it.

    They are approving authorization requests, I have one. It was for flights in Class E(SFC), but it was approved.

    Of course. But there wasn't much creative criticism. More like "you need to explain this... that... the other" Too vague. It would be nice if they told me what they were looking for.

    They don't give you a reason besides. "does not meet the requirements"

    why are you waiting? you can still take the test and get your 107 and then just fly as a hobbyist.
