International Outreach and Training Services
Recognized globally for its commitment to safety, the FAA helps the world’s aviation community build and maintain safety in order to strengthen the flying public’s trust. We do that in part through our extensive outreach and training programs for foreign civil aviation authorities, air navigation service providers, regional safety oversight offices, and others. Working together, we can ensure that the international aviation network provides the maximum safety and benefits for the traveling public and the citizens of the world.
The FAA is committed to providing state-of-the-art outreach and technical training on a wide range of subjects that deliver aviation expertise and knowledge supporting International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) member states and regional organizations. The FAA provides related training services such as training needs assessments, consultations, and formal training in the following areas: Aviation safety, airway facilities, air traffic, airports, aviation security, instructor development, management development and aviation English.

- E-regulatory products: Implementation Packages (iPacks)
- The FAA partners with ICAO to provide a bundle of standardized guidance material, training, tools, and subject matter expertise to support, facilitate, and guide the implementation of ICAO provisions for state entities, aviation services providers, supply chain stakeholders, and their personnel.
- Model Civil Aviation Regulations (MCARs)
- Modern aviation practice presents complex situations to an aviation authority. MCARs attempt to address situations faced by most countries, with aircraft operating both within a state and in international aviation. Simplicity in the regulation of civil aviation under such circumstances supports the consistent application of ICAO SARPs throughout the aviation community. MCARS are used by states to support their regulatory objectives and achieve compliance with ICAO standards. By understanding how states use MCARS, and where implementation difficulties exist, the FAA can assist them in identifying needs, improving their products, and identifying and addressing potential challenges.
