GUIDE TO JAR OPS

JOHN SWAN HAS undertaken the not inconsiderable task of rewriting the contents of JAR OPS 1 and JAR OPS 3 and making these into a more readable and easily understood reference booklet. The problem with all books of this nature is that the user can never be sure whether the author has incorporated 100 per cent of the legal requirements in such a way that the rewritten format can be implicitly relied upon. This Guide does however give a good overall impression of what JAR OPS is all about, tabulates much of the data in an easily assimilated form (although the layout of some of the tables, such as those relating to cockpit voice recorders and flight data recorders, still leaves these rather tricky to interpret) and draws the subject all together in a compact form. Commercial pilots wishing to qualify for (or to convert an existing JAA State licence into) an FAR FCL licence require to have an understanding of JAR OPS, and this book should provide an adequate guide to help such pilots meet this requirement.
