Public Aircraft Operations are limited by federal statue to certain government operations within U.S. airspace. Whether an operation qualifies as a public aircraft operation is determined on a flight-by-flight basis, under the terms of Title 49. The considerations when making this determination are aircraft ownership, the operator, the purpose of the flight, and the persons on board the aircraft. Public entities may choose to operate either under the Provisions of 14 CFR 107, a Waver to 14 CFR Part 107 or a blanket Public COA.
