International Operations Manual

The first issue is that you do not need to spend a lot of time and effort on an International Operations Manual that has all the country details, which are constantly changing. Do that in a separate folder that the FAA does not have to approve and for which you do not need to embed it in your manual.

In all most all cases this is a ready-to-go manual as is after setups for your company and logo.

You do still need a Special Area Operations Manual, yours or ours, that addresses the specifics of RVSM, MNPS, WATRS, and RNP airspace.

Three Versions

You find we have a version for just Western Hemisphere, which is best to use if you are N-registered but not operating worldwide.

There is a Worldwide manual primarily for N-registered that do operate across the oceans.

There is a Worldwide manual for non-USA operators that is primarily for all other operators based outside of the USA and need a manual for their country approvals. This is basically the same as our Worldwide manual but it is looking toward operations that seldom, if ever, cross the MNPS and venture into the Western Hemisphere.

COPIES – You receive 4 final approved copies, though you may receive more as we go along with any changes.

International Operations Manual

International Operations Manual – Three versions of the manual, customized as you may need, are available so there is a Western Hemisphere only manual (most turboprops and small business jets not going to Europe), full international operations for USA-registered aircraft and a third manual version that is basically for non-USA operators looking toward the USA as a foreign destination.

The manuals are appropriate for 14 CFR parts 91, 125 & 135 and generally require little customization as you may already have a local supplement you use with specific country information that does not, in and of itself, have to be FAA approved, wherein the core of this sizable manual is comprehensive in every way.

You do still need a Special Area Operation (SAO) manual for RVSM, MNPS, RNP, and WATRS guidance and operational procedures.
