The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is the official legal print publication containing the codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (eCFR) is a continuously updated online version of the CFR. It is not an official legal edition of the CFR.
The Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) are rulesprescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)governing all aviation activities in the United States. The FARs arepart of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations(CFR).

Employers that maintain mandatory retirement policies for their pilots should be aware that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) deems such policies to violate the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). The EEOC takes the position that corporate flight departments cannot rely upon the FAR Part 121 retirement rule because that rule applies only to Part 121 scheduled air carrier operations. Corporate flight operations are conducted under FAR Part 91, which does not contain a mandatory retirement rule.
Ogletree Deakins has the expertise to advise employers on this issue and as to the types of policies and procedures that may be implemented by corporate flight departments to maintain a high level of safety without resorting to (and possibly defending) mandatory retirement policies.
When a military installation or Government - related facility(whether or not specifically named) is located partially within more than one city or county boundary, the applicable per diem rate for the entire installation or facility is the higher of the rates which apply to the cities and / or counties, even though part(s) of such activities may be located outside the defined per diem locality.
EBACE2026 will bring together business leaders, government officials, manufacturers, flight department personnel, avionics firms, fractional providers, charter/lease companies and all manner of people involved in nearly every aspect of business aviation.
When the FAA published Part 125, they built in flexibility by including deviation authority in section 125.3. This allowed businesses to operate Part 125 size airplanes under letters of deviation authority (LODAs) issued by their local FSDO. In most cases, full or blanket LODAs have exempted these business airplanes from all provisions of Part 125 and allowed them to operate under FAR Part 91, Subpart F. In the absence of these LODAs, most businesses operating Part 125 size airplanes would have been required to undertake the burdensome process of obtaining an operating certificate and operating specifications.
NBAA encourages operators of Part 125 sized aircraft to review this notice carefully, then meet with their Principal Inspectors early in the process to ensure compliance with above timeline. In addition, an NBAA working group is coordinating with the FAA to develop a list of deviations to Part 125 that will be entered into a national database. This will streamline the process for operators when applying for partial deviations. [FAA Notice 8000.345 is Cancelled]
In 2003, the FAA organized an ARC to conduct a wide ranging review of FAR Parts 125 and 135. One of the working groups was charged with determining whether Part 125 should be completely rescinded. After reviewing the types of operations that currently take place under Part 125, the working group determined that it would not be appropriate to place all of these operations under another operating part of the FARs. The working group recommended that Part 125 remain in place and suggested the following modifications:
1. Private operations with Part 125 sized aircraft should be moved to Part 91. To accommodate this, a new subpart would be created under Part 91 with safety improvements designed specifically for large aircraft.
(4) A determination is made by a pilot, who is certificated and appropriately rated under part 61 of this chapter, or by a person, who is certificated and appropriately rated to perform maintenance on the aircraft, that the inoperative instrument or equipment does not constitute a hazard to the aircraft.
Since 1958, these rules have typically been referred to as "FARs", short for Federal Aviation Regulations. However, another set of regulations (Title 48) is titled "Federal Acquisitions Regulations", and this has led to confusion with the use of the acronym "FAR". Therefore, the FAA began to refer to specific regulations by the term "14 CFR part XX".
FAA Order 1320.46C (Advisory Circular System) section 10 (Using references in the text of an AC) para. h explains "Do not use the acronym "FAR" to refer to FAA's regulations. Neither the Department of Transportation nor the Office of the Federal Register allow us to use "FAR" for our regulations. The Federal Acquisition Regulations apply government-wide and are allowed to use the acronym "FAR.""
Title 14 CFR - Aeronautics and Space is one of the fifty titles that make up the United States Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Title 14 is the principal set of rules and regulations (sometimes called administrative law) issued by the Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration, federal agencies of the United States which oversee Aeronautics and Space. This title is available in digital and printed form, and can be referenced online using the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR).
Each title of the CFR is organized into sections, called parts. Each part deals with a specific type of activity. For example, 14 CFR Part 141 contains rules for pilot training schools. The sections most relevant to aircraft pilots and AMTs (Aviation Maintenance Technicians) are listed below. Many of the FARs are designed to regulate certification of pilots, schools, or aircraft rather than the operation of airplanes. Once an airplane design is certified using some parts of these regulations, it is certified regardless of whether the regulations change in the future. For that reason, newer planes are certified using newer versions of the FARs, and in many aspects may be thus considered safer designs.
The FARs are divided into tens of thousands of separate sections, many of which have large numbers of researchers using them on any given day. A few of the regulations particularly interesting to laypersons, relevant to current political issues, or of historical interest are listed below.
This part contains airworthiness standards for airplanes in the transport category. The Boeing 737 and later types, and Airbus A300 series, are well-known airplane types that were certified according to standards set out in FAR Part 25. Transport category airplanes are either:
Most of the Federal Aviation Regulations, including Part 25, commenced on February 1, 1965. Prior to that date, airworthiness standards for airplanes in the transport category were promulgated in Part 4b of the US Civil Air Regulations which was in effect by November 1945. Effective August 27, 1957, Special Civil Air Regulation (SR) 422 was the basis for certification of the first turbine-powered transport airplanes, such as the Boeing 707, the Lockheed Electra, and the Fairchild 27. SR 422A became effective July 2, 1958, and was superseded by SR 422B, effective August 29, 1959. Only a few airplanes were certified under SR 422A, such as the Gulfstream I and the CL-44. First generation turbine-powered transport category airplanes such as the DC-8, DC-9, and B-727, were originally certified under SR 422B. SR 422B was recodified with minor changes to 14 CFR part 25, which became effective February 1965.
This part contains airworthiness standards for rotorcraft in the transport category. Rotorcraft with more than 7,000 lb (3,200 kg) maximum takeoff weight and 10 or more passengers are type certified in this part. Rotorcraft with more than 20,000 lb (9,100 kg) maximum takeoff weight must be certified to additional Category A standards defined in this part.
For all pilots, there is an important distinction in the parts that address classes of flight. These parts do not distinguish type of aircraft, but rather type of activity done with the aircraft. Regulations for commuter and commercial aviation are far more intensive than those for general aviation, and specific training is required. Hence, flights are often referred to as Part XX operations, to specify which one of the different sets of rules applies in a particular case. Also, flight schools will often designate themselves as Part 61 or Part 141 to distinguish between different levels of training and different study programs they could offer to the students.
Part 91 is general operating rules for all aircraft. General aviation flights are conducted under this part. Part 91, Subpart (K) prescribes operating rules for fractional ownership programs.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts. 2b1af7f3a8
