The Flight Technologies and Procedures Division’s mission is to improve flight operations, standardization, and aviation safety within U.S. and international airspace systems in support of the FAA’s plans for the NextGen through regulations, standards, and policy at the intersection of flight operations, aircraft, airspace, airports, and flight procedures. This mission is fulfilled through the work of four functional Groups:
- Flight Operations Group

- Flight Procedures and Airspace Group
- Ensure safe and efficient flight paths from takeoff to landing and provide operational safety reviews and support to the NAS.
- Flight Research and Analysis Group
- Conduct globally-recognized research for aviation safety on existing and emerging flight technologies and operational concepts.
- Organizational Effectiveness Group
- To ensure consistency, interdependence, critical thinking, and agility across the Division through implementation of SMS, SAS, QMS, professional development, and communications.
