The Ultralight Vehicle
Provides guidance to the operators of ultralights in the United States. It discusses the elements, which make up the definition of ultralight vehicles for the purposes of operating under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 103. It also discusses when an ultralight must be operated as an aircraft under the regulations applicable to certificated aircraft.
Ultralight Vehicle Operations-Airports, ATC, and Weather
Provides guidance for the operation of ultralight vehicles in the U.S. Information includes airport and flight park operations, how to work with ATC, and the availability of weather services.
Government Aircraft Operations
Provides guidance on whether particular government aircraft operations are public aircraft or civil aircraft operations under the new statutory definition of “public aircraft.” This AC contains FAA’s intended application of key terms in the new statutory definition. For operations that have lost public aircraft status under the new law, information is provided on bringing those operations into compliance with FAA safety regulations for civil aircraft and provides information on applying for an exemption.
Towbar and Towbarless Movement of Aircraft
This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance for towbar and towbarless movement of aircraft.
Air Medical Resource Management
This AC provides guidance and information, which establish minimum guidelines for Air Medical Resource Management Training. Procedural Subject
Use of Cockpit Displays of Digital Weather and Operational Information
This Advisory Circular provides guidance to aircraft flight crewmembers and other airmen for the use of Flight Information Services Data Link (FISDL) systems
Event Planning Guide
Describes acceptable methods for organizing the aviation community for all events, such as major sports events (auto racing, golf, etc.) It is not limited to sporting events, but can be used whenever there is a large amount of aviation activity on an infrequent basis and open gatherings of people. The goal of this AC is to enhance air and ground safety. This AC does not include events that require FAA Form, 7711-1, Application for Certificate of Waiver or Authorization.
North American Free Trade Agreement and Specialty Air Services Operations
Provides information for aircraft operators from the United States who plan to conduct specialty air services (SAS) operations in Canada or Mexico in accordance with the North American Free Trade Agreement. It also provides information for aircraft operators from Canada or Mexico who plan to conduct SAS operations in the U.S.

Hazardous Mountain Winds and Their Visual Indicators
Assists pilots involved in aviation operations to diagnose the potential for severe wind events in the vicinity of mountainous areas. It provides information on preflight planning techniques and on in-flight evaluation strategies for avoiding destructive turbulence and loss of aircraft control. Pilots, dispatchers, air traffic controllers, and other who must deal with weather phenomena and the routing of aircraft will benefit from the information contained in this advisory circular.
Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program
Describes a system for the voluntary accreditation of civil aircraft parts distributors on the basis of voluntary industry oversight and provides information that may be used for developing accreditation programs. The FAA believes such programs will assist in alleviating lack of documentation and will improve traceability.
Pilot Windshear Guide
Communicates key windshear information relevant to flight crews. Appendix 1 of this advisory circular is the Pilot Windshear Guide, which is only one section of the two-volume Windshear Training Aid.
Aviation Safety Reporting Program
This advisory circular (AC) describes the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Aviation Safety Reporting Program (ASRP) which utilizes the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as a third party to receive and process Aviation Safety Reports. This cooperative safety reporting program invites pilots, controllers, Flight Attendants (F/A), maintenance personnel, dispatchers, and other users of the National Airspace System (NAS), or any other person, to report to NASA actual or potential discrepancies and deficiencies involving the safety of aviation operations. The operations covered by the program include departure, en route, approach, and landing operations and procedures; air traffic control (ATC) procedures and equipment; crew and ATC communications; aircraft cabin operations; aircraft movement on the airport; near midair collisions (NMAC); aircraft maintenance and recordkeeping; and airport conditions or services. The effectiveness of this program in improving safety depends on the free, unrestricted flow of information from the users of the NAS. Based on information obtained from this program, the FAA will take corrective action as necessary to remedy defects or deficiencies in the NAS. The reports may also provide data for improving the current system and planning for a future system.
Aviation Weather Services
Aviation Weather Services, Advisory Circular 00-45F, is published jointly by the National Weather Service (NWS) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This publication supplements its companion manual Aviation Weather, Advisory Circular 00-6A, which documents weather theory and its application to the aviation community. , explains U.S. aviation weather products and services. It details the interpretation and application of advisories, coded weather reports, forecasts, observed and prognostic weather charts, and radar and satellite imagery. Product examples and explanations are taken primarily from the Aviation Weather Center’s Aviation Digital Data Service
Status of Federal Aviation Regulations
This circular provides the public with the current publication status of the looseleaf Federal Aviation Regulations, prices, and order form. This Advisory Circular will be updated later this year because of the frequent changes.
