Does the ADA Cover Air Transportation?

No, aircraft used for point-to-point transportation are not subject to the transportation rules of the ADA. They are covered by the Air Carrier Access Act, 14 CFR Part 382. (§37.3)

Aircraft used in a “loop” situation, such as a tour of the Grand Canyon, might be considered recreational conveyances and thus may be covered under title III, similar to other recreational conveyances.
