Skyway Code updated

The fourth edition of the CAA’s popular Skyway Code has been published online and is now available in book format from aviation publisher and pilot supply company Airplan Flight Equipment online. 

The Skyway Code has quickly become the most useful ‘pocket guide’ for General Aviation pilots involved in non-commercial and flight training operations in the UK.

Filled with practical guidance on the operational, safety and regulatory issues relevant to GA flying, as a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) publication, The Skyway Code also provides the authoritative legal background to the post-EASA aviation landscape with references and links to the new rules and regulations that now govern the operation of General Aviation aircraft in the UK.

The Skyway Code is a living publication that is regularly reviewed to ensure it reflects the latest regulatory requirements and best aviation practice, condensing the ‘must know’ information on UK GA flying into easy to navigate information and graphics.

Key updates in Version 4 of the the Skyway Code include:

• Improved presentation and readability
• Key retained EU law for aviation
• Updates to aeronautical information, including UK Flight Information Services (FIS) frequencies and Frequency Monitoring Codes
• Use of the VHF Low Level Frequency
• Updated operational guidance, including fuel management and crossing controlled airspace
• Revised ‘Safer Flying’ chapter, including threat and error management and decision making
