Public Aircraft

This course provides instruction on the statutory provisions and FAA guidance governing public aircraft operations. It covers the basic requirements for an aircraft to be operated as a public aircraft, what constitutes an eligible governmental function, and the practical implications of using the same aircraft to conduct both civil and public operations. It also discusses the FAA policy regarding operations conducted under contract for a government entity.

Building a Professional Relationship with the Government

This session provides a road map for building a positive relationship with civil aviation authorities.

The session concludes by providing strategies for maintaining a professional relationship with regulators.
