Making it easier to follow the rules


We’ve updated 2 of our popular guides for pilots.

The new version of the Plain English guide for the general operating and flight rules makes it even easier to understand – and find – the rules.

The guide sets out the regulatory requirements of the Part 91 Civil Aviation Safety Regulations and the associated Manual of Standards in a concise, practical format.

Improvements include:

  • an index
  • a numerical list of the regulations and where they appear in the guide – great for students taking exams
  • more hyperlinks
  • clearer information about danger areas and restricted airspace
  • new appendices on night vision imaging systems, air displays and observers on certain air transport flights.

We’ve also updated our visual flight rules guide (VFRG). It provides help preparing, planning and flying safely under the visual flight rules.
