Hello community.I am back explaining some basic aviation terms.Recently, I have seen some community members get confused with SVFR and MVFR. So with that, we are gonna talk about SVFR and MVFR. What does SVFR stand for? SVFR stands for Special Flight Rules. Special VFR flight is a VFR flight cleared by air traffic control to operate within a control zone in meteorological conditions below visual meteorological conditions. In the daytime, you must have at least 1 statue of flight visibility and clear of clouds. At night, you must have an instrument rating as pilot in command and an IFR certified airplane. Now lets talk about MVFR. What does MVFR stand for? MVFR stands for Marginal Visual Flight Rules. If an airport is MVFR then it has ceilings from 1,000 feet to 3,000 feet and/or 3 to 5 miles visibility. VFR flights are permitted in this weather. As you can conclude, SVFR and MVFR are NOT the same thing. If you have any questions, fill free to comment below.
