Tips from the User Guide!

Visual Flight Rules (VFR) are a set of regulations that must be followed by pilots when operating an aircraft visually; and specifically, in Visual Meteorological Conditions (VMC).

Flights conducted under VFR can only be operated if the weather conditions are suitable. This means the pilot must be able to:

1) navigate visually;

2) and ‘see & avoid’ obstacles such as terrain and other aircraft

NOTAM: Please respect all other pilots and follow ATC instructions. Make note of airport capacities. Divert if an airport is full or circle until there is a spot available (for VFR flying). Have fun!
