interstate, overseas, or foreign air transportation or the transportation of mail by aircraft.
Air transportation
An alert area is established to inform pilots of a specific area wherein a high volume of pilot training or an unusual type of aeronautical activity is conducted.
Alert Area
means an airport at which an aircraft may land if a landing at the intended airport becomes inadvisable.
Alternate airport
means a reciprocating aircraft engine having a rated takeoff power that is producible from sea level to an established higher altitude.
Altitude engine
means any instrument, mechanism, equipment, part, apparatus, appurtenance, or accessory, including communications equipment, that is used or intended to be used in operating or controlling an aircraft in flight, is installed in or attached to the aircraft, and is not part of an airframe, engine, or propeller.
