Light Signals from the Control Tower for Ground Vehicles, Equipment, and Personnel
Provides the aviation community with the meaning of the light signals used when communicating with ground vehicles, equipment, and personnel on the airport movement area from the control tower.
Visual Flight Rules (VFR) Flight Near Noise-Sensitive Areas
Encourages pilots making VFR flights near noise-sensitive areas to fly at altitudes higher than the minimum permitted by regulation and on flight paths, which will reduce aircraft noise in such area.
Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs/TFR)
Describes the types of conditions under which the FAA may impose a temporary flight restriction. Also explains which elements have been delegated authority by the Administrator to issue TFR’s and lists the types of responsible agencies/offices from which the FAA will accept requests to establish TFR’s. Examples of NOTAM’s for each type of TFR are also provided.
Model Aircraft Operating Standards
Outlines, and encourages voluntary compliance with, safety standards for model aircraft operators.
Military Flying Activities
Provides information about military flying activities in the National Airspace System, describes the various types of routes and areas allocated for this purpose, and explains how information on the location and status of these routes and areas can be obtained.

Certification of Transport Category Rotorcraft (Changes 1 - 4 incorporated)
a. This Advisory Circular (AC) publishes needed changes to the existing AC material as a result of a safety-focused study.
b. This change revises existing material in 9 sections.
c. The change number and the date of the changed material are shown at the top of each page. The vertical lines in the right or left margin indicates the beginning and end of each change. Pages that have different page numbers, but no text changes, will retain the previous heading information.
d. This AC does not change regulatory requirements and does not authorize changes in, or deviations from, regulatory requirements. This AC establishes an acceptable means, but not the only means, of compliance. Since the guidance material presented in this AC is not regulatory, terms having a mandatory definition, such as “shall” and “must,” etc., as used in this AC, apply either to the reiteration of a regulation itself, or to an applicant who chooses to follow a prescribed method of compliance without deviation.
Certification of Normal Category Rotorcraft (Changes 1 - 4 incorporated)
a. This Advisory Circular (AC) publishes needed changes to the existing AC material. Additionally, there is incorporation of previously approved AC material and non-technical editorial changes to various sections.
b. The change number and the date of the changed material are shown at the top of each page. The vertical lines in the outside margin indicate the beginning and end of each change. Pages that have different page numbers, but no text changes, will retain the previous heading information.
c. This AC does not change regulatory requirements and does not authorize changes in, or deviations from, regulatory requirements. This AC establishes an acceptable means, but not the only means, of compliance. Since the guidance material presented in this AC is not regulatory, terms having a mandatory definition, such as "shall" and "must," etc., as used in this AC, apply either to the reiteration of a regulation itself, or to an applicant who chooses to follow a prescribed method of compliance without deviation.

FAA Quality Control System Certification Program
This circular describes the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Quality Control System Certification Program and the mechanics of implementation. It is intended for guidance and information only.
Reusable Launch and Reentry Vehicle System Safety Process
Provides guidance and information concerning the application of a systematic and logical system safety process and methodology for identification and control of public safety hazards associated with the operation of reusable launch vehicle and reentry vehicle systems.
Part 440 Insurance Conditions
Describes how insurance policies obtained by licensees to meet the requirements of 14 CFR Part 440 may satisfy certain conditions of coverage.
Licensing Test Flight Reusable Launch Vehicle
Demonstrates how existing federal regulations on obtaining a license to conduct a reusable launch vehicle (RLV) mission(s) may be used to obtain a license to conduct RLV missions for test flight purposes (referred to herein as test flight missions) while an RLV is under development.
Licensing Application Procedures
Provides guidance to commercial launch license applicants on the procedural aspects of the application process. These procedures apply to all applicants whether for a license to launch a launch vehicle, to reenter a reentry vehicle, or to operate a launch or reentry site.
Hazard Analysis for the Launch or Reentry of a Reusable Suborbital Rocket Under an Experimental Permit
Provide guidance for applying a systematic and logical hazard analysis to the identification, analysis, and control of public safety hazards and risks associated with the launch and reentry of a reusable suborbital rocket under an experimental permit.
Anomaly Reporting and Corrective Action for a Reusable Suborbital Rocket Operating Under an Experimental Permit
Provide guidance for reporting anomalie occurring in reusable suborbital rockets operating under an expermentalpermit issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) This AC also provide guidance for implementing an anomaly reporting and corrective action system for reusable suborbital rockets operating under FAA-issued experimental permit.
Requirements for 760-Channel VHF Radio for Aeronautical Operations
Encourages aircraft owners to upgrade their air-ground radio communication systems. Describes and upgrades civil air traffic control frequencies in the very high frequency (118.000 to 136.975 MHz) band. The 136.000 to 136.975 MHz band became available for aeronautical use on January 1, 1990.
Use of Radionavigation Land Test Station and Signal Generators
Gives information as to the frequencies on which the FAA will authorize and the FCC will license radionavigation land test stations. It also discusses the interference potential of signal generators operating in aeronautical bands of the radio spectrum and how this interference can be alleviated.
