Federal Aviation Administration

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is charged with regulating aerospace transportation in the United States, including issuing pilot certificates and operating air traffic control systems. The FAA was folded into the Department of Transportation when it was founded in 1967. EFF has targeted the FAA with FOIA requests and lawsuits pertaining to its granting of drone authorization certificates.
