Where to find the rules of the air

Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

Where to find the rules of the air

I've had my head down for a few years so haven't followed the twists and turns of SERA and the decline of the CAA. Am I correct in thinking that the best (only?) document that summarises the rules of the air is "SERA, AIR NAVIGATION ORDER 2009 AND RULES OF THE AIR REGULATIONS 2015 - CONSOLIDATION Correct to 18 March 2016", as found here: https://www.caa.co.uk/WorkArea/Downl...?id=4294975756 ?

ANO 2016 was released a couple of weeks ago, so that reference will need changing within your link. Otherwise a very valid document.

The rules or the air are part of CAP393, the latest up to date version is at this link
https://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalap...detail&id=7523

Save as a PDF document then Scroll down to around page 262 which is section 2 Rules of the Air.
All you need to know is there.

I'd expected to find everything in the ANO, and that is where I started my search, but I've failed to find anything about the "500 ft" rule, whereas the document I referenced includes it. Is my ANO search failing or am I going blind as well as daft?

It is to do with the legislation hierarchy, where rules in EASA legislation applicable to both EASA and non-EASA aircraft have been removed from national legislation to avoid duplication (and possible errors/differences). As you've found Rule 5 can now be found in SERA.5005, plus a few exemptions in ORS4 (No.1174 returning us to the old Rule 5!). You will find that the AIP has been similarly butchered.
