I am due to sit the PPL(A) exam soon, and have just purchased a set of CAOs and CARs. Despite the cardiac arrest I nearly suffered when I saw the box and the extent of them, I am not lost as to how to index them, catalogue them, and basically how to find stuff in them.
For example, if there is a question on passenger limits, I might have an idea of where to find it, but is there an easy catalogue, contents page, or index I could possible refer to? and maybe take into the exam?
CAR Regulations 1 to 61 - relate to definitions, maintenance and airworthiness and are in volume 1
CAR 5.xx - moved to the CASR 61.xxx and relate to medical and licensing.
CAR 77-343 - Rules of the air etc and this is volume 3.
We don't worry about anything else except Schedule 8 in Volume 4 (permitted maintenance). Don't forget the VFRG from CASA. It is a little dated but it is still a vital air law reference for the PPL exam once you print it out and bind it. No tabbing is permitted in it but highlighting is OK. It has a fabulous Table of contents, index and glossary of terms and abbreviations.

Thank you. The supplement is very helpful, and I guess it would have been more helpful had I had taken it to the exam (which was two weeks ago now). I ended up buying the complete set of CAO/CARs etc. They definitely were needed, but would have been better off with this supplement. Will have to look to try and sell those volumes now
Needless to say, I passed with a very pleasing score (88%).
Thanks again for your help. I love this forum, and hope that I can continue to read, learn and contribute in the years ahead.
