As a hobby I can call my class e to surface airport and the manager is fine with it. Commercially I have to submit a request to the FAA. Tried twice. Both times I was I received an email stating the requests were before the start date of 10/3/16. They were not. I got the second email prior to the date I had requested. If they're pushing the 90 day period It's pretty unless to make a request as who could possibly know what the conditions would be a month or two down the road. Puzzled!!!
