The Federal Aviation Regulations govern all aircraft, airports, pilots, mechanics, and aviation operations in the United States. The Federal Aviation Regulations are listed in title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

Title 14 governs Aeronautics and Space. Sections 1-199 are the Federal Aviation Regulations. 200-399 belongs to the DOT for "aviation proceedings". 400-1199 cover Commercial Space Transportation, The Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Transportation. 1200-1299 is NASA, and parts 1300-1399 are "Air Transportation System Stabilization".

Perhaps, with a bit of luck, I can translate the important parts into English. I will start with the FARs, selected parts 1-199. These govern aviation as we know it. Give me some time, there are about 75 active parts to work through and explicate. I will list more here as I start preparing sections for posting. Not all parts will be posted, as my goal is to add useful information, not meaningless obscure federal codes and regulations. In addition, I will be editing the parts, as there are obscurities that are meaningless to all, even those who fly and build airplanes. The complete regulations can be found amongst my listed sources at the bottom of this page. I will also try and post a page that details changes since 9-11 and the PATRIOT act. THERE IS NO GUARENTEE, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED ABOUT THE ACCURACY OF THIS INFORMATION OR ANY LINKED TO THIS NODE (1486611).

Subchapter A- Definitions
