FAA Activities, what they do:
The FAA is responsible for the safety of civil aviation both in the USA and abroad. The Federal Aviation Act of 1958 created the agency under the name Federal Aviation Agency. The present name was adopted in 1967 when the FAA became a part of the Department of Transportation.

Major roles include:

  • Regulating civil aviation to (promote safety);
  • Encouraging and developing civil aeronautics, including new aviation technology;
  • Developing and operating a system of air traffic control and navigation for both civil and military aircraft;
  • Researching and developing the National Airspace System and civil aeronautics;
  • Developing and carrying out programs to control aircraft noise and other environmental effects of civil aviation;
  • Regulating U.S. commercial space transportation FAA Activities Safety Regulation
The FAA issues and enforces regulations and minimum standards covering manufacturing, operating, and maintaining aircraft. They also certify airmen and airports that serve air carriers.

Airspace and Air Traffic Management
The safe and efficient use of navigable airspace is one of the primary objectives. This is achieved through operating a network of airport towers, air route traffic control centers, and flight service stations. The FAA develops air traffic rules, assigns the use of airspace, and controls air traffic.

Air Navigation Facilities
The FAA build or install visual and electronic aids to air navigation. They maintain, operate, and assure the quality of these facilities. They also sustain other systems to support air navigation and air traffic control, including voice and data communications equipment, radar facilities, computer systems, and visual display equipment at flight service stations.

Civil Aviation Abroad
The FAA promotes aviation safety and encourages civil aviation abroad of the USA. They thus exchange aeronautical information with foreign authorities; certify foreign repair shops, airmen, and mechanics; provide technical aid and training; negotiate bilateral airworthiness agreements with other countries; and take part in international conferences.

Commercial Space Transportation
The FAA regulates and encourages the U.S. commercial space transportation industry. They license commercial space launch facilities and private launches of space payloads on expendable launch vehicles.

Research, Engineering, and Development
The FAA does research on and develops the systems and procedures needed for a safe and efficient system of air navigation and air traffic control. They also help develop better aircraft, engines, and equipment and test or evaluate aviation systems, devices, materials, and procedures as well as also undertaking aeromedical research.

Other Programs
The FAA registers aircraft and records documents reflecting title or interest in aircraft and their parts. They administer an aviation insurance program, develop specifications for aeronautical charts, and publish information on airways, airport services, and other technical subjects in aeronautics.

Organization
An Administrator manages FAA, assisted by a Deputy Administrator. Five Associate Administrators report to the Administrator and direct the line-of-business organizations that carry out the agency's principle functions. The Chief Counsel and nine Assistant Administrators also report to the Administrator. The Assistant Administrators oversee other key programs such as Human Resources, Budget, and System Safety. They also have nine geographical regions and two major centers, the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center and the William J. Hughes Technical Center.
