The following is an excerpt from the FAA on “Relief for Certain Persons and Operations during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID19) Outbreak.” For the complete document click here.

SUMMARY: This Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) provides regulatory relief to
persons who have been unable to comply with certain training, recent experience, testing, and
checking requirements due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. This relief
allows operators to continue to use pilots and other crewmembers in support of essential
operations during this period. Additionally, this SFAR provides regulatory relief to certain
persons and pilot schools unable to meet duration and renewal requirements due to the outbreak.
This rule also allows certain air carriers and operators to fly temporary overflow aircraft, a need
resulting from the outbreak, to a point of storage pursuant to a special flight permit with a
continuing authorization.
