This Visual flight rules guide (VFRG) has been designed primarily for VFR pilots engaged in domestic operations. Material relating to IFR; commercial or military 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.
