VFR is a shortcut for --->'Visual Flight Rules'.

VFR is a set of regulations that govern the operation of aircraft in visual meteorological conditions (VMC). In the maritime context, VFR is often used to refer to the operation of aircraft in support of maritime activities, such as search and rescue, coastal patrol, and fisheries monitoring.

Some examples of VFR operations in the maritime context include:

  • Search and rescue: Aircraft may be used to search for and locate vessels in distress, and to provide assistance to those in need.

  • Coastal patrol: Aircraft may be used to monitor maritime traffic and enforce regulations, such as fishing restrictions and maritime security measures.

  • Fisheries monitoring: Aircraft may be used to monitor fishing activity and enforce regulations related to catch limits and conservation measures.

VFR regulations typically require aircraft to maintain a minimum distance from the surface of the water, as well as minimum visibility and cloud clearance requirements. Pilots operating under VFR must also be trained and certified to operate aircraft in visual meteorological conditions, and must be able to navigate using visual cues such as landmarks and natural features.

Overall, VFR operations play an important role in supporting maritime activities and ensuring the safety and security of vessels and crews at sea.
