Pilot Guidelines – Visual Flight Rules (VFR)

For a VFR flight in real life, you do not have to file a flightplan. In our virtual world however, a flightplan should always be filed.

VFR stands for Visual Flight Rules. The pilot must fly and navigate with visual reference to the surface. Due to this, there are certain weather criteria that must be met for a VFR flight to take place.

VFR flights are not permitted in Class A airspace, so there are no criteria.

VFR Flight in Class C, and Class D airspace:

At or above 10.000FT :

1,500 metres horizontally away from cloud

1,000ft vertically away from cloud

In flight visibility of at least 8km

Below 10.000FT:

1,500 metres horizontally away from cloud

1,000ft vertically away from cloud

In flight visibility of at least 5km

An aircraft is deemed to have complied with the below 10.000FT restrictions if the aircraft is not a helicopter and:

it flies at or below 3,000ft amsl

it flies at a speed which is 140KIAS or less

remains clear of cloud, with the surface in sight and an in flight visibility of at least 5km

If it is a helicopter, it is deemed to have complied with the below 10.000FT restrictions if:

it flies at or below 3,000ft amsl

it remains clear of cloud, with the surface in sight and an in flight visibility of at least 1,500 metre
