Extension of District Court Jurisdiction Under § 1110 of the Federal Aviation Act

Headnotes: 

Section 1110 of the Federal Aviation Act authorizes the President to extend that Act to areas outside the United States, but does not authorize an analogous extension of the geographic jurisdiction of a district court for purposes of enforcing certain of the Act’s provisions. An executive order extending the Act to the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (TTPI) would make its provisions part of the law of the TTPI, and enforceable through the TTPI judicial system.
