Visual Flight Rules. Esp, Flying an Aircraft by Visual Flight Rules. Flight in this manner uses visible ground features and landmarks as a navigational reference, and visual scanning to avoid any colisions. Most VFR flight should be conducted OCTA (outside controlled airspace) or with a Flight Notification by an Air Trafic Controll centre. Minimum visibilitys must be adheared to and special requirements for ceartain airspace be met.
Also used to discribe weather as being suitable for flight by visual references.
1: We decided to file a VFR flightplan as the weather was very clear that day.
2: We had to maintain OCTA due to lots of IFR traffic in the Terminal Area, it's one of the problems flying VFR that you don't get top priority, We decided to skirt around the C-class airspace instead.
3: Inbound to our destination we found the weather was not suitable for VFR and we had to divert to another airport some 80 miles south. Finding a place to stay for the night while the storm passed was a pain.
4: Approach Controll: "Baron 371 Sierra Echo, Descend to 3000 feet, traffic is VFR aircraft your 10-o-clock at 1500 feet unverified southbound, shouldn't be a factor"
