Visual Flight Rules, or VFR, refers to a set of guidelines under which a pilot operates an aircraft in weather conditions clear enough for the pilot to see where the aircraft is going. VFR requires a pilot to be able to see outside the cockpit, control the aircraft’s altitude, navigate, and avoid other obstacles and aircraft. Different governing bodies have unique requirements for VFR flight, but factors such as minimum visibility and distance from clouds are always taken into consideration. The opposite of VFR flight is IFR, or instrument flight rules, in which the operation of the aircraft is done primarily through the use of instruments rather than visual reference. In modern aircraft, there are many instruments at the pilot’s disposal during both VFR and IFR flight. While VFR flight has the added bonus of visibility, instruments are still key. This blog will cover the primary aeronautic navigation instruments necessary for VFR flight.
