Most exhibition jumps where spectators are involved require special authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration. To issue a Certificate of Authorization, the FAA requires the completion of FAA Form 7711-2. Some FSDOs want to see details provided in this attachment as well. The form, the attachment, and its instructions are available under the Quick Links module on this page. Additional information can be found in Section 7 of the SIM.
Sporting Event Waivers
Pursuant to 14 CFR section 99.7, and as described by FDC NOTAM 4/3621, aviation activity is restricted within three miles and 3,000 feet over major raceway events, major league baseball, NFL football, and college football games in stadiums that can seat more than 30,000. Demo jumps into these events require a waiver issued by the Transportation Security Administration in addition to the FAA-issued Certificate of Authorization. Jumpers seeking TSA/FAA waivers should complete the waiver application.
