Eurocontrol, VFR Rules

Learning to operate an aircraft safely in the flight environment is essential. If we want to become a proficient, professional pilot and show this to our passengers in such a way that they feel safe and confident flying with us. Then there are some things we need to become very good at.

As a pilot you need to be constantly aware of your aircraft and the environment you are fly in. Things as clearing turns, the right of way, low flying cruising altitudes and more are emphasized here.

When flight planning you will sometimes cross controlled airspace, the manual below contains some useful tips for doing that safely.

VFR Flight rules

Eurocontrol Guidance Notes

Excerpt from the document:

Flight Rules are laid down internationally (as “Standards and Recommended Practices” in Annex 2 to the Chicago Convention) to prevent collisions with other aircraft and the ground. However, different countries have slightly different needs, so they sometimes have their own extra rules, and may interpret the international rules differently.

Any 'Differences' from ICAO Standards must be written in the State's AIP (see GN 3), so when flying internationally pilots must ensure they are aware of the differences in all the countries over which they intend to fly, including their own.
