    By order of the Chief and Deputy Administrator of the Civil Aviation Authority, the requirement to obtain a license prior to operating an aircraft is hereby nullified and no longer in force, as of 23:59 (UTC) on the 16th of February, 2020.

    Simply put, you no longer need a license to fly a plane or helicopter, but you DO need to follow all air laws and regulations ( https://greenleafrp.com/forum/threads/air-law-and-regulation.1687 ). This does not mean licenses cease to exist, CAA can still issue licenses but for now they are not required. If the licensing requirement is re-activated then anyone with a license will see no interruption to their priveleges. When hiring a pilot, we highly recommend seeking pilots with licenses. Training via CFI is still an option, and those teaching un-licensed pilots still require a CFI rating.

    Here are some critical air rules you need to make sure to follow:
    - Maintain at least 500ft above the ground when within 500ft of any residential area, or large gathering of people.
    - Maintain at least 1000ft above the ground when within 1000ft of any densely populated area (like LS).
    - Maintain an active listening watch in the air traffic frequency at all times you are operating an aircraft.
    - Make accurate takeoff / approach / landing callouts when other pilots are operating in the air traffic frequency.
    - Ensure you have enough fuel for the planned flight, plus 30 minutes of extra flight time.
    - Never take off or continue a flight when your aircraft is damaged or shows any sign of malfunction.
    - Never take off or continue any flight in heavy winds, lightning, severe rain, or severe snow.
    - Never land an aircraft 500ft near any residential area or 1000ft from any densely populated area.

    Yes, this means you can still land airplanes on mountains in the bush, or isolated beaches.

    Have a good flight!
