The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is an agency of the United States Department of Transportation with authority to regulate and oversee all aspects of civil aviation in the U.S. (National Airworthiness Authority).

The Federal Aviation Administration's major roles include: Regulating U.S. commercial space transportation. Regulating air navigation facilities' geometry and Flight inspection standards. Encouraging and developing civil aeronautics, including new aviation technology. Issuing, suspending, or revoking pilot certificates. Regulating civil aviation to promote safety, especially through local offices called Flight Standards District Offices.

    Very good book for future pilots

    Book is cool and it was, I was looking for. It has a lot of information for future pilots. Book is really worth buying!
    But version for Nook is formatted not the best way if you compare it with original PDF file.
    - Images are too small (there is space on display to make it bigger)
    - For some reasons this book has huge margins on sides, top and the bottom, that could be filled in with text.
    Dear Barnes & Noble. Ask your employees to fix it (as they did their job very bad).
