AIR FORCE - AFMAN 11-217
|Publication Date:||10 June 2019|
This AFMAN is designed to complement AFI 11-202 Volume 3, General Flight Rules. AFI 11-202V3 takes precedence when there is conflict with this AFMAN.
AFI 11-202V3 consolidates ICAO SARPs, the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), FAA advisory circulars (AC), and United States Air Force (USAF) guidance for pilots.
Basic civil aviation information for the national airspace system (NAS) available in the Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM) is not duplicated in this AFMAN; additional information available in FAA-H-8083-15, Instrument Flying Handbook, FAAH-8083-16, Instrument Procedures Handbook, and FAA-H-8083-25, Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge. FAA handbooks and resources may be found on the FAA
Differences between USAF and FAA aviation information are provided in this AFMAN; important ICAO aviation information is also duplicated for ease of access. This AFMAN has been written to focus on worldwide operations; items that are specific to the NAS are annotated accordingly (e.g., "(NAS only)").
This AFMAN provides broad guidance and cannot address every situation. Pilots should exercise sound judgment to safely conduct flying operations if something is not expressly prohibited in this AFMAN.
