Visual flight rules guide

The Visual Flight Rules Guide (VFRG) helps pilots know the rules that keep them, and others, safe. It is for use by visual flight rules pilots who fly in Australia. The guide has safety information, diagrams, charts and maps.

There are several ways to get a copy of the guide:

You can continue to access a previous version of the VFRG via the VFRG website. The website will be switched off in January 2022.

You can take an official copy of the VFRG into your recreational pilot licence or private pilot licence exam.

The updated guide consists of 7 chapters:

  1. Know your rules and responsibilities
  2. Planning your fight
  3. Flying your aircraft
  4. Flying your helicopter
  5. Radio communication procedures
  6. Managing hazards
  7. Dealing with emergency situations
