We at Aviation Reference Desk strive to bring you the best, most recent data straight from authoritative sources. The vast majority of the data we collected is straight from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The extensive database the FAA offers is often very technical in nature and in langauge. It's full of obscure codes and numbers that don't mean anything to the untrained eye. We've taken those obscure codes and acronyms and translated them to everyday language.
