Practical Flying Guides are produced by our Standards team on a variety of flying subjects and go deeper into their respective topics than GAP booklets.

The material in these guides is not mandatory or compliance-orientated, such as in the case of an advisory circular, but will describe practical flying technique in detail. 

Academic explanations are avoided, and the guides are written in an ‘easy to read’ style focusing on practical application.

While the guides will lend themselves to being used to support training, they are, in fact, meant for a much wider audience.
