CAA publishes Version 3 of the Skyway Code (March 2021)

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has today published version 3 of the Skyway Code, designed to provide General Aviation pilots with quick and easy access to key information relevant to their flying.
 
Version 3 brings the publication up to date with changes to reflect the UK’s departure from the European Union, as well as the latest regulatory requirements and best practice from the CAA.
 
Sophie O’Sullivan, Acting Head of the General Aviation Unit said: “Today, we publish SkyWay Code V3. We know this is one of the most popular items we have ever produced; used by thousands of pilots who appreciate how approachable it is, explaining technical subjects in a simple and understandable way.
 
“We are committed to investing in and supporting the continuation of this document and ahead of the proposed return to flying, the updated version is now available to support you as you prepare for your return to the skies. I would encourage all pilots to read the SkyWay Code and use it as part of your planning and preparation at this time of change.“
 
Kirsty Murphy, Blades Aerobatic Display Pilot and former Red Arrows pilot said: “As an aerobatic display pilot I really value the accessibility and helpful reminders of the SkyWay Code; it is a one-stop shop for everything you need to consider before you brief and head out to your aircraft to go flying. I encourage all pilots to take the time to read through this free online document.”
