Welcome to the homebase of the Division of Civil Aviation (DCA), responsible for the Administration of Aviation programs and activities in the F.S.M., including the management of the nation's airspace, airports, and airfields. DCA is a branch of the Department of Transportation, Communication & Infrastructure of the F.S.M. government.

About the Federated States of Micronesia (F.S.M.)

The F.S.M. is a nation of more than 600 islands with a cumulative land area a quarter of the size of the state of Rhode Island spread out across a million square miles of ocean--as large as one-third of the continental United States. Although most of the 100,000 inhabitants of the F.S.M. are referred to as Micronesians, each island group has a distinct culture, language, and history.


The F.S.M. is divided into four states--Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk, and Yap. Yap is known for its thriving traditional culture, seafaring people, and giant stone money. Chuuk is revered among SCUBA divers from around the world, who come to Truk Lagoon to explore the fleet of sunken Japanese warships that lies under its turquoise waters. Pohnpei is the lush, mysterious garden island, a paradise of mountains, rivers, and waterfalls, and more recently, one of the top surfing destinations on earth. Kosrae prides itself on its quiet, peaceful atmosphere, pristine reefs and beaches, and warm inclusiveness.


Currently the F.S.M. is served by four international airports and nine civil airfields.
