Code of Federal Regulations and Advisory Circulars 

Code of Federal Regulations - The FAA publishes the 
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to make readily 
available to the aviation community the regulatory 
requirements placed upon them. These regulations 
are sold as individual parts by the Superintendent of 

The more frequently amended parts are sold on 
subscription service with subscribers receiving 
changes automatically as issued. Less active parts are 
sold on a single

sale basis. Changes to single-sale 

parts will be sold separately as issued. Information 
concerning these changes will be furnished by the 
FAA through its Status of Federal Aviation 
Regulations, AC 00


Advisory Circulars - The FAA issues Advisory 
Circulars (AC) to inform the aviation public in a 
systematic way of nonregulatory material. Unless 
incorporated into a regulation by reference, the 
contents of an advisory circular are not binding on the 
public. Advisory Circulars are issued in a numbered 
subject system corresponding to the subject areas of 
the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (Title 14, 
Chapter 1, FAA).
