_____, means any person to whom he has delegated his authority in the matter concerned.
ADMINISTRATOR
means nondimensional coefficients for aerodynamic forces and moments.
Aerodynamic coefficients
Reciprocating aircraft engine having a rated takeoff power that is producible from sea level to an established higher altitude.
Altitude engine
The transportation of mail by aircraft or any operation or navigation of aircraft within the limits of any Fedral airway or any operation or navigation of aircraft.
Air Commerce
unless used with reference to another person ____ by administrator.
Approved
device that is used or intended to be used for flight in the air.
Aircraft
Method of navigation that permits aircraft operations on any desired course within the coverage of stations referenced navigation signals or within the limits of self-contained system capability.
Area navigation (RNAV)
Includesturbosuperchargers,appurtenances,andaccessories necessary for its functioning,but does not include propellers.
Aircraft engine
Fusalage,booms,nacelles,cowlings,fairings,airfoil surfaces(including rotors but excluding propllers and rotating airfoils of engins ),and landing gear of an aircraft and their acccessories and controls.
Airframe
Area of land or water that is used or intended to be used for the landing and takeoff of aircraft, and includes its buildings and facilities,if any.
AIRPORT
An engine-driven lighter-than-air aircraft that can be steered.
Airship
Means a rotor that serves either to counteract the effect of the main rotor torqye on a rotorcraft or to maneuver the aircraft about one or more of its three principal axes.
Auxiliary rotor
Aircraft operating in the air or on an airport surfac,exclusive of loading ramps and parking areas.
Air traffic
An area navigation route within the airspace extending upward from,and including,18,00 feet MSL to flight level 450.
Area navigation high route
Sustains flight through the use of either gas buoyancy or an airborne heater.
Balloon
authorization by air traffic control,for the purpose of preventing collision between known aircraft,for an aircraft to prceed under specified traffic conditions within controlled airspace.
Air traffic clearance
An area navigation route within the airspace extending upward from,1,2000 feet above the surface of the earth to,but not including 18,000 feet MSL.
Area navigation low route
Established area in which a high volume of pilot training or an unusual type of aeronautical activity is conducted.
Alert Area
Army, Navy , Air Force,Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.
Armed Forces
Forward wing of a canard configuration and may be a fixed,movable, or variable geometry surface,with or without control surfaces.
Canard
An airport at which an aircraft may land if a landing at the intended airport becomes inadvisable.
Alternate airport
Rotorcraft flight condition in which the lifting rotor is driven entirely by action of the air when the rotorcraft is in motion.
Autorotation
The power delivered at the propeller shaft (main drive or main output) of an aircraft engine.
Brake horsepower
indicated airspeed of an aircraft,corrected for position and instrument error.Calibrated airspeed is equal to true airspeed in standard atmosphere at sea level.
Calibrated airspeed
Configuration in which the span of the forward wing is substantially less than that of the main wing.
Canard configuration
