Hi,

Can anyone tell me where can I download a complete list of recommended VFR routes for SA?

Thanks.
Stuart

Hi Stuart

There are not really recommended VFR routes published for SA. Best is to ask for info from local pilots in the area that you want to visit. AFAIK the only VFR recommended routes are found in the Jeppesen VFR charts that can be bought from any pilot shop. Hope you come right.

Thanks. The Pilot's Radio Handbook lists some of them and EasyPlan also shows some. I was hoping there was standard list available somewhere, maybe on the ATNS site. No prob - will just revert to using common sense (if I can track some down).

Also check on the AIP as there are mandatory VFR routings below some TMAs. The idea is to keep VFR traffic clear of the controlled airspace.

There are what are referred to as Special Rules areas, which normally have published VFR routes to keep the traffic on a desired flight path. I know FAPE, FADN (Greytown Special Rules) and the FAJS TMA have special rules area. I have not worked in FACT so cannot speak for them...

These would all be published in the AIP.
