Doing it ‘by the book’ is one of the foundations of safe flying and, for general aviation, ‘the book’ is CASA’s Visual Flight Rules Guide (VFRG). The latest version 6.2 of the VFRG is now available.
The VFRG is designed primarily for VFR pilots engaged in domestic operations, with the printed version featuring a comprehensive booklet comprising detailed safety information, diagrams, charts and maps.
The VFRG is divided into five main sections:
- General—the rules, licensing, pilot responsibilities, radio procedures
- Pre-flight planning—meteorology, briefing, notification, information services
- Operations—communications, non-controlled aerodromes, controlled airspace, sport aviation
- Helicopter operations
- Emergency procedures
Visit the VFRG website regularly for updates.
The latest edition of the guide features amendments to rules and regulations, and incorporates feedback from the aviation community.
