E-TEXT: VISUAL FLIGHT RULES GUIDE
(CASA Version: 26/11/2011)
Click the image to open the VFG in a new window.
For those of you who don't know CASA's Visual Flight Rules Guide, it is an excellent resource for all VFR pilots freely available from
. It isn't updated as often as the AIP unfortunately, so it doesn't replace the official docs but it still contains a heap of reference material in an easy-to-read form. Since I had some spare time (between 2am and 3am every second Thursday), I decided to have a play with the VFG and put it into E-Text form for anyone who might find it useful.
This E-Text is fully searchable and has an integrated table of contents (unlike the orginal PDF). It turned out pretty well but due to quality limitations in the original CASA PDF, some pages may not appear as clear as we would like.
You are free to use this version as you wish, as long as you stick to the conditions specified in CASA's copyright declaration (see below). Also, please be aware of the following disclaimer, taken from the Visual Flight Rules Guide:
The VFG is occasionally updated and even though I will check the E-Text against CASA's version now and then, I cannot guarantee this is the most current one. If you find the E-Text is out of date, please let me know.
Remember, the reference version is always freely available in PDF form from
. A huge thanks to the staff at CASA who put together such an excellent resource.
I hope you find this online edition useful and feedback (positive or negative) is always welcome.
Great effort on this VFRG Richard. By the way I havn't forgotten to let you know about my progress towards my CPL. Getting time with an instructor to undertake the pre testing has been the issue(to get the recommmendation to do the actual test). I am almost there so hopefully will be fully qualified in the next month or so - the the champagne comes out.
