Aviation is generally the flying and operating of aircraft, whether for commercial purposes or private purposes.

In Texas, aviation is regulated by both federal and state laws. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is the primary agency responsible for the regulation of civil aviation in the United States, including Texas. The FAA's regulations cover a wide range of activities including aircraft certification, pilot licensing, flight operations, and air traffic control. On the state level, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Aviation Division works in conjunction with the FAA to oversee aviation within the state. They are responsible for the development of community airports, providing funding for aviation projects, and ensuring that Texas aviation complies with both federal and state regulations. Texas also has laws and regulations that govern the operation of airports, aircraft registration, and aeronautics within the state. Both commercial and private aviation operations must adhere to these regulations to ensure safety and compliance.
