FAA logoThe FAA's role in the observance of this anniversary includes support for the U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission, of which the FAA's administrator is a member. The FAA's own programs in observance of the Centennial include outreach events organized in partnership with schools and the aviation community. The agency's aviation education home page also provides a special Web page with educational material about the Wright brothers.
The FAA is the sector of the U.S. government primarily responsible for the safety of civil aviation. The FAA was originally designated the Federal Aviation Agency when established by the Federal Aviation Act of 1958. The present name was adopted in 1967 when the FAA became a component of the Department of Transportation.
