The CAA has launched its new Skyway Code for General Aviation pilots to help with pre-flight checks, flight planning and in-flight actions.

Ed Bellamy of the CAA’s General Aviation Unit has overseen development of the code. He 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 focussed on what a pilot most needs to know – primarily aircraft operations and airspace, with a strong emphasis on the practicalities of VFR flying.”
