+++	CHANGES (06 Sep 95):

This archive is now *quite* obsolete and is no longer being
maintained.  I would strongly urge serious aviators to seek current
FARs on ftp.fedworld.gov, or if you have a web browser, to check out
the various selections on http://acro.harvard.edu/GA/ga_info.html.

+++	CHANGES (21 Jan 95):

Added far_21.{doc,txt,zip,Z} (FAR Part 21) from ftp.fedworld.gov


+++	CHANGES (06 Jan 95):

[Paraphrasing Ken Jenks:]
The files in the ASCII subdir has .doc extensions and were therefore
being interpreted as "Word for Windows" "Content-type" (that's what
MIME calls this document format).  In this case, this isn't all bad.
When a properly configured Web client retrieves one of these .doc
files, the Web client will launch Word instead of showing the text
in-line within the Web client.  This takes a little while longer (to
launch Word), but it allows better scrolling and searching
capabilities.

I have set up a new subdir parallel to the ASCII subdir called

			ASCII-txt

in which the same files are referred to with .txt extensions instead
of through .doc extensions, for those who need/want to browse in this
way.


+++	CHANGES (30 Dec 94):

Kevin Kahn has downloaded the latest and greatest from Compuserve, which
Rich Cremer of the FAA says are current as of mid-December 1994.  There
are quite a few more parts now.  There is also a helpful index file
(far_idx) which is a very handy way to search for subject headings.


+++	WWW AVIATION PAGE MAINTAINERS PLEASE NOTE:

The new arrangement in this hierarchy is quite a bit better organized,
more complete, and more consistently named than the previous hierarchy.
If you wish to continue to use HTML coding based on the old
organization while you modify the coding on new Web pages to deal with
the new organization, the old hierarchy can be found on

+++	NOTE FROM KEVIN KAHN, July 1994:

This directory contains copies of the FAR as provided by Rick Cremer on
Compuserve.  I [Kevin] only copy the files down from Compuserve and put
them here as time permits.  I don't have any way of getting files that
aren't there yet so please don't swamp me with requests for such.
Also, I don't control the format of the contents -- in most cases I
haven't even looked at these.  So if a file is corrupted let me know
and I'll recopy it but if you don't like the way the FAA lays things
out in it talk to them :-).  I'm sure that some inspired person will
figure out how to generate an indexing system for them but that's also
not me.  What you see is what you get.

The files are as follows:

be more than one compress file corresponding to a zip file (e.g. the
NTSB regs).

+++	DIRECTORY STRUCTURE

The directory structure here contains three top-level dirs, but the
contents are identical (except for the storage format):

	ASCII: files with .doc extensions and PC-compatible (8x3)
filenames.  Pure ASCII with PC-compatible (cr/lf) line endings.

	ZIPped: The ASCII files above in PKZIP format.  Let me (dae)
know if you need tools to deal with these files.  This is your best bet
if you are downloading to a PC or Windows system.

	Compressed: These files began as the ASCII files but have been
converted to simple UNIX-compatible line endings, and have .Z extensions.
They have been compressed using the standard UNIX compress utility.
Let me know if you need tools to deal with these files.  This is your
best bet if you are downloading to a UNIX system.


+++	NTSB REGULATIONS

ZIPped/nt_reg.zip is a ZIPped archive containing the NTSB regulations
in seven files:

		nt_act.doc
		nt_845.doc
		nt_831.doc
		nt_830.doc
		nt_821.doc
		nt_801.doc
		nt_800.doc

This archive master is not maintained as such in the ASCII or Compressed
subdirs.  Instead, you will find the individual files in those subdirs.
