Included is a chart indicating the availability of FLIP products by geographic area.
Contains detailed instructions for completing all types of military and civil flight plans, including
international flight plans.
Contains standard pilot procedures while operating under both FAA and international (ICAO) rules. It is
divided into preflight, departure, en route, and arrival phases of flight with some supplementary
information. Contains an excellent section on the different NOTAM systems. You should become
thoroughly familiar with the contents of this section. Periodically through the year you should review this
section as a reminder of proper procedures.
International Civil Aviation Organization
The ICAO is an affiliate of the United Nations which establishes international rules and procedures for civil
aviation. U.S. military pilots are expected to conform to these rules to the maximum extent practicable.
Operations and Firings Over The High Seas
Concerns procedures to be used by U.S. military aircraft conducting air operations or gunnery exercises
within airspace over the high seas.
Aviation Weather Codes
Contains explanations of the Meteorological Aviation Report (METAR) codes used at all international
stations including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. Also contains an explanation of the
Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF) codes used at all U.S. and overseas stations. Some modifications
have been made to the U.S. METAR and TAF to reflect the standard measuring system (i.e., feet, statute
miles, etc.). See AIM (Chapter 7) for a full description.
