Objectives • Understand what code of federal regulations (CFR) is all about • Define FAR part 243, 247, and 248 and identify its equivalent in EASA regulations • Seek the relevance of these provisions in the aviation operations • Create interactions; enjoy the study of the topic; make new grounds for possible collaborations in the future
    3. 3. Understanding CFR • CFR stands for Code of Federal Regulations • CFR is composed of 50 titles, representing all the administrative laws of the United States of America • CFR Title 14 belongs to Aeronautics and Space, popularly known as the Federal Aviation Regulations

After all, U.S. and EASA regulations were based from ICAO regulations.
