Bureau of Air Commerce
The Aeronautics Branch of the Department of Commerce was established by the Air Commerce Act on May 20, 1926. The branch was renamed as the Bureau of Air Commerce in 1934. It was given regulatory power to ensure civil air safety, including pilot testing and licensing, airworthiness certification, safety rule creation and enforcement, aircraft certification, airway establishment, air navigation aid operation and maintenance, and accident investigation. It performed these functions until 1938, until responsibility for non-military aviation was transferred to the new Civil Aeronautics Authority.
