The Eastern Region is home to FAA's Washington, DC headquarters and the William J. Hughes Technical Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Through the specialized New York Area Program Integration Office (NYAPIO), the Regional Administrator facilitates and oversees integration of programs to address congestion and flight delays specific to New York Metropolitan Area airspace, which among the most complex in the world. The Eastern Region consists of seven of the nation's Core 30 airports in the national airspace system (NAS). Oversight of certifications and safety for the Region's airports is coordinated through the Eastern Region Airports Division.
Within the region, FAA's Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Aviation and Space Education (AVSED) Program is an integral part of agency outreach and the national education system. The program was established to expose students to aviation and aerospace careers and to promote STEM education.
FAA's nine Regional Administrator offices are strategically located across the country, each serving the public by supporting and coordinating operation of a national airspace system that ensures airports are safe, efficient, environmentally responsible, and meet the needs of travelers.
