VFR FLIGHT OK, VFR AS OPPOSED TO WHAT? VFR as opposed to "IFR". This is one time that aviation does get simple. When you go up in an airplane, there's . Take a look at this chart, it shows the what and where of VFR flight. Notice that the vast majority of U.S. airspace is Class "E", and that it is wide open for VFR operations.

Symbols shown are for World Aeronautical Charts (WACs), Sectional Aeronautical Charts (Sectionals), Terminal Area Charts (TACs), VFR Flyway Planning Charts and Helicopter Route Charts. When a symbol is different on any VFR chart series, it will be annotated as such (e.g. WAC or Not shown on WAC).

USE OF VFR 'MOVING MAP' DEVICES In this leaflet 'VFR Moving Map' means either a device, or software for use on a device, which may be used for the planning and/or execution of a VFR flight. The key feature is that it displays the aircraft's position in real time on a map format that includes relevant aeronautical information for VFR .
