CAA delays night flying changes

The introduction of Visual Flight Rules (VFR) at night has been postponed until 17 September 2012.

The introduction of Visual Flight Rules (VFR) at night has been postponed until 17 September 2012.

Changes were originally to be put in place from 8 June 2012.

The CAA has announced that the delay has been made in order to allow the changes to be fully considered, and to give stakeholders time to implement them.

Currently, civil aircraft flying in the UK must comply with Instrument Flight Rules (IFR), but the introduction of VFR at night will remove this requirement.

The introduction of the rules on 17 September will coincide with the launch of Part-FCL in the UK.
