Sent an inquiry to the FAA asking of there was any way to check on the progress of my authorization request. below is the text of their reply: "Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to check the status of your request. At this time, all FAA resources are devoted to processing waiver requests. Please note that waivers are being processed as quickly as possible and the FAA is striving to process all requests within 90 days of receipt." Looks like i won't be holding my breath waiting for my Class E authorization.
