This Visual flight rules guide (VFRG) has been designed primarily for VFR pilots engaged in domestic operations. Material relating to commercial operations has therefore been omitted unless it contributes to the understanding of a particular topic.
For ease of understanding, the wording has been modified considerably from that of the source documents. Since the precise wording of a regulation may be required by some readers, references to the source documents have been provided throughout the text where appropriate.
A section is included for helicopter pilots that explains differences between fixed-wing and rotary-wing operations. A night visual flight rules (NVFR) section is also included for appropriately rated pilots.
