Internet Communications of Aviation Weather and NOTAMS
This AC describes the process for any person or organization that provides access to aviation weather and notices to Airmen (NOTAMS) via the public Internet to become a qualified Internet communications provider (QICP)
Integrating Helicopter and Tiltrotor Assets into Disaster Relief Planning
Provides guidance to state and local emergency relief planners on integrating helicopters and tiltrotor aircraft into disaster relief planning efforts.
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.
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.

Forming and Operating a Flying Club
Provides preliminary information that will assist anyone or any group of people interested in forming and operating a flying club.
|00-41B||ASU-430||FAA Quality Control System Certification Program||10-10-1989|
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.
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.
Aviation Weather For Pilots and Flight Operations Personnel
Provides an up-to-date and expanded text for pilots and other flight operations personnel whose interest in meteorology is primarily in its application to flying.
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.
|00-30B||AFS-400||Atmospheric Turbulence Avoidance||09-09-1997|
Atmospheric Turbulence Avoidance
This Advisory Circular (AC) describes to pilots, aircrew members, dispatchers, and other operations personnel the various types of clear air turbulence (CAT) and some of the weather patterns associated with it. Also included are “Rules of Thumb” for avoiding or minimizing CAT encounters. Appendix 1 provides a sample Atmospheric Hazards Advisory and Avoidance System that air carriers can tailor to their specific needs.
