The FAA Hotline accepts reports concerning the safety of the National Airspace System, violation of a Federal Aviation Regulation (Title 14 CFR), aviation safety issues, and reports related to FAA employees or FAA facilities. The FAA Hotline provides a single venue for FAA employees, the aviation community and the public to file their reports.

Please note that the FAA Hotline does not accept general comments or questions and certain types of reports, see our web page for further information and resources. If we receive these types of reports you may not receive a response from our office.

*Report Narrative

In order to appropriately address your report please include:

  1. Any detailed information not already listed above
  2. A description of the allegations or regulatory violations observed
  3. Names of any potential witnesses
  4. Relevant links to websites that are related to your report

Please do not include any personal data such as birthdate or SSN. If such information exists, you may note this in the description below and if it is required for any inquiry or investigation, an FAA representative may contact you.

*NOTE: Please do not submit a report with just a link(s) to a video(s) without supporting information. Simply sending a link to a social media site and stating a violation has occurred is not necessarily sufficient to take further action. If you include a link to the specific video in question, you must state the violation which allegedly occurred, the name of the operator (person/company) who took the video, and the location and time the operator filmed the event. Please note, even if a violation has occurred, federal rules of evidence severely limit the use of a video on a social media site as evidence unless the operator admits to taking the video or there is a witness who saw the alleged violation take place.
