  Aviation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Aviation or air transport refers to the activities surrounding human flight and the aircraft industry.
General aviation includes any flight that is not military and does not fly on a regular schedule, ranging from a recreational flight in a hang glider to a non-scheduled cargo flight in a Boeing 747.
Each country regulates aviation differently, but typically, general aviation falls under several different types of regulations depending on whether it is private or commercial and on the type of equipment involved.
