Federal Aviation Regulations

The Federal Aviation Regulations ( U.S. Federal Aviation Regulations ) or FARs are set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA ) (U.S. Federal Aviation Administration ) policies governing all aviation activities in the United States. The FARs are part of the American Federal Regulations ( Code of Federal Regulations ). In them, a wide number of activities such as aircraft design, flight of the airline pilot training, ballooning and even model rocket launches are regulated. The guidelines were designed to promote safety in aviation and to pilots, passengers and the general public to be protected from unnecessary risks. They are also the national security of the United States, especially after the attacks of September 11, 2001, to protect against attacks.


The FARs are divided into sections, which are called by their inclusion within the American Federal Regulations Parts (Eng. " ingredient"). Each part deals with a specific type of aviation activity.
