Guys, just to keep you informed, today I have received a (traditional) mail with the SOPs and even though initially they wanted me to pay a lot of money for them (I agreed), they now stated that I do not have to pay anything.

Can you give us more details? I'd like RVMs but if I could just get my hands on 3 SOPs... That would be awesome.

How many documents and pages?  How much did they want for them?

My experience (even while going through this whole process) is that the FAA doesn't charge for SOPs but won't send out RVMs without payment.

So is there a central location to make the request?

So that were 2 SOPs (DTW and CLE towers). Cleveland SOP - 119 pages (burned on a CD disc) and DTW SOP - 117 pages (printed out).

Sorry for double-posting but I forgot to answer the second question and I can't see the option to edit first one.

Initially they wanted $154.70 for these 2 SOPs.

Did anyone get any response from the FAA from their own FOIA requests?
