Access Many Popular Portions Of FAA.Gov From Your Phone Or
The FAA has rolled out a service for iOS and Android mobile
devices to give pilots and other access to the FAA.gov website from
their phones or tablets.
Users can look up N-numbers, find Advisory Circulars, browse
airport delays, and more. The FAA Mobile website allows users to
stay connected with popular features of FAA.gov from any location
– whether it be the hangar, the office, or home. Also
accessible are the full web version of FAA.gov by tapping a link at
the bottom of any FAA Mobile page.
FAA Mobile fully supports iOS 4 and higher, as well as Android
2.2 and higher.
Among the features available through the mobile service are:
- N-Number Lookup. Look up any aircraft's N-number to see
ownership, registration, aircraft manufacturer and model, and more
- U.S. Airport Status and Delays. Review information about
airport status and delays across the entire National Airspace
System (NAS), or look up the status of a particular airport to plan
your travel schedule.
- Advisory Circular (AC) Lookup. Find and read advisory circulars
to help you comply with FAA regulations.
- Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) Locator. Locate the
closest offices based on your current location, if you have
Location Services enabled on your device. You can also locate FSDOs
by region or by office name.
- Wildlife Strike Reporting. Report an aircraft wildlife strike
or edit an existing wildlife strike report.
- News and Press Releases. Read the three most recent FAA news
stories and press releases.
FAA Mobile 1.0 is not a mobile application; rather, it is a set
of pages and services that are optimized for viewing on mobile
devices. It fully supports iOS 4 and higher as well as Android 2.2
and higher. The Blackberry (RIM), Windows Mobile, and WebOS
platforms are untested. If you view FAA Mobile on one of those
platforms, your user experience may not be optimal.
