Federal Aviation Administration website gets a “FAAcelift”

On your next visit to, you’ll notice that the Federal Aviation Administration’s website has received a “FAAcelift” with a new homepage and redesigned look and feel. These upgrades give pilots, mechanics and the flying public improved access to the most popular web content, while improving usability, readability and visual design.

Users can quickly look up an aircraft's registration- or N-Number, check for airport status and delays, and easily search for FAA policies and  regulatory guidance. The latest aviation news and agency updates are featured at the top of the page, and a new dedicated area for NextGen puts the future of aviation at your fingertips.

The new page is WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliant, which means you will see larger font sizes and color contrast levels that make the page easier on the eyes. These readability features have been standardized across to provide one of the highest accessibility ratings in government today...
