Administrator's Fact Book

The “Fact Book” is a page-by-page compendium of who we are and what we do. Without question, the FAA manages the most complex aviation system on the planet. Approaching a billion passengers. Thousands of pieces of equipment and facilities. And an elite corps of professionals to manage all of it. The National Airspace System is a national treasure—a dynamic organism that’s constantly evolving. Knowing the precise areas experiencing air traffic growth can lead to a greater focus on implementing new technologies, reexamining resources and sharpening infrastructure requirements. Each of these has a vital role in the FAA’s primary mission: safety. This booklet enables you to connect the dots.
