FEDERAL AVIATION AGENCY
1. Operation of traffic control system. This activity covers the operation on a daily 24-hour basis of a national system of air traffic management in the United States and its possessions. With the aid of radar, communications, and other facilities, traffic management personnel at 31 centers monitor and control en route flights of civil and military aircraft conducted under instrument conditions to assure safety and to expedite the flow of traffic. Control towers are operated at 276 major civil airports to guide traffic movements on and in the vicinity of the airports. Some 349 domestic and international flight service stations transmit weather and other information to pilots and relay traffic control data between ground controllers and pilots. Increases in 1965 are for operating newly commissioned air traffic control facilities procured and installed with funds appropriated under Facilities and equipment and for authorized civilian pay increases.
2. Facility installation and technical support.-This activity covers the direction and engineering services related to the establishment and improvement of facilities in the traffic control system; procurement, contracting, and materiel management programs; supply support and leased communications services for the traffic control system; and supply support for Agency aircraft except for aircraft used in research and development programs. Major increases in 1965 are to provide supply support and leased communications services for new air traffic control and navigation facilities.
3. Maintenance of traffic control system. This activity covers the technical operation and maintenance of a national network of air navigation and traffic control aids in the United States and its possessions. Major increases in 1965 are for maintenance of newly commissioned air traffic control and navigation aids, assumption of maintenance responsibility of certain joint use military radar facilities used in the control of civil air traffic, and for authorized civilian pay increases.
4. Administration of flight standards.-This activity covers establishment and enforcement of civil air regulations which are designed to assure the high standards of safety in aviation. Inspections are made and certificates issued for aircraft, airmen, aircraft operators, and air agencies that meet safety or competency requirements. Facility flight inspection functions and management and maintenance of Agency aircraft are also included in this activity.
5. Administration of medical standards.-This activity covers development of regulations governing the physical and mental fitness of airmen and other persons whose health affects safety in flight, health and medical pro

grams for Agency personnel, administration of an aviation medical research program, the project costs of which are financed under Research and development; and the operation of the Civil Aeromedical Research Institute building.
6. Research direction.-This activity covers direction and administrative costs of the research and development program, the direct project costs of which are financed under the Research and development appropriation; and administrative support for the operation of the National Facilities Experimental Center at Atlantic City, N.J.
