Whether a Part 121 airline or a Part 135 charter operator, a company lives or dies by its compliance with the applicable Federal Aviation Regulations, or FARs (14 CFR). Air Carrier Operations introduces students of aviation to the significant Federal Aviation Regulations affecting airline operations. Students and professionals gain an appreciation of the variety of regulatory issues involved in air carrier operations and gather the background information they need to identify and apply the relevant regulations.


This book examines the many regulations governing an air carrier and focuses primarily on Part 121 air carriers; in addition, coverage includes Part 119 and relevant portions of Parts 135, 91, 61 and 25 of the Federal Aviation Regulations. For this fourth edition, the authors update regulations including Part 111 and the Pilot Records Database as well as type ratings, class, and category. The text emphasizes Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) flight operations, particularly useful to instrument-rated pilots and aircraft dispatchers.


The authors collaborated with two seasoned Aircraft Dispatchers, enhancing the content relevant to students preparing for the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate. In addition, updates and revisions throughout reflect new FAA regulatory changes to provide students, pilots, flight crews, dispatchers, and management professionals with the essential information pertinent to today’s air carrier operations.

Air Carrier Operations is a college-level text ideal for Air Carrier Flight Operations and Airline Operations courses, is used extensively in Airline Dispatcher Training courses, and is an excellent preparation for airline interviews and initial airline pilot training.
