‘Hard Copy’ Skyway Code now on sale

The ‘Skyway Code’ is a CAA publication designed to be the General Aviation equivalent of the UK’s ‘Highway Code’, containing essential information on all aspects of VFR flight in the UK including rules and procedures, airspace, RT and ATC procedures, pilot licencing and general safety advice. First published on-line in May, the updated ‘V1.1’ version was launched at the end of August to co-incide with the annual LAA Rally at Sywell.

The Skyway Code

The CAA say that by condensing the ‘must know’ information on UK GA flying into a single publication with easy-to-navigate information and graphics, The Skyway Code gives GA pilots a one stop shop for safety rules and advice, private flying rules, regulations and best practice.

Bob Liddiard of the CAA’s General Aviation Unit said: “We wanted the Skyway Code to be something that GA pilots, new or experienced, would find useful. Rather than include every bit of information available we’ve focused on what a pilot most needs to know.

The latest version of The Skyway Code is now also available in ‘hard copy’, after aviation publisher Airplan Flight Equipment (AFEonline) offered to publish the guide in a printed format.

Jeremy M Pratt, Managing Director of AFEonline, said: “We’re delighted to be involved in helping The Skyway Code reach a wider audience. It really is an invaluable document for any pilot who wants to keep on top of the current GA rules and procedures, I keep a hard copy in my flight bag and I suspect many pilots of all levels of experience will want to own a copy too.”
