VFR FLIGHT MANUAL AAI ITALY
AIS Certified Company
The VFR Flight Manual AAI Italy was made by Avioportolano to fill an important information gap due to the fact that the rules relating to VFR flight in Italy are scattered throughout various sources: AIP, Laws on activity at Airstrips, Laws on VDS, Explanatory circulars from the Aero Club of Italy, from ENAC and ANSV. Furthermore - apart from AIP - all the other particular information concerning the Italian situation is available in our language only. It was therefore necessary to provide the information at least in English too, in order to facilitate foreign guests who wish to fly in Italy.
GUIDE TO CONSULTATION
This manual brings the full package of Italian legislation that regulates flying under VFR together in a single, bilingual source (Italian and English). It also groups the relevant information together into sections, chapters, paragraphs and indexes to guide the reader and to help them to familiarise with VFR in Italy, making it simpler to search for different subjects of their specific interest.
All AIP information required for pilots and regarding flying under VFR has been included, keeping the original language and translations. Of the other specific Italian laws regulating flight under VFR, only information concerning pilots has been included, and is placed in subject order, maintaining – in this case, too – the original legislation, together with English translations.
The original AIP text is in black.The legislative texts are also in black. The sources are listed in footnotes.
The following texts are in blue: descriptions of AAI chapters, produced by the editor or authors, changes and/or elaboration of original text from AIP or legislative sources.
DESCRIPTION OF THE AIRPORTS NETWORK IN ITALY
A third part of this manual offers a thorough description – as well as of the Airports – of the whole network of registered airfields and – a specifically Italian characteristic - unregistered airfields (suitable areas not included in AIP Italia, where it is permitted to land, take off, hold flying lessons, and transport passengers with certified aircraft and ULM), for which information has been collected and provided by AAI - Avioportolano Air Information Service.
