UAE APPLICATION OF RULES OF THE AIR

..




This Part shall apply to all civil aircraft operating in the Emirates Flight Information Region

Emirates, wherever they may be, to the extent that they do not conflict with the rules
published by the State having jurisdiction over the territory over-flown.
Each person operating a civil aircraft of United Arab Emirates registry over the high seas shall
comply with these Regulations.
COMPLIANCE WITH RULES OF THE AIR
The operation of an aircraft either in flight or on the movement area of an aerodrome shall be
in compliance with these regulations and, in addition, when in flight, either with:
(a)

the Visual Flight Rules, or

(b)

the Instrument Flight Rules.

.

RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMPLIANCE



Responsibility of Pilot in Command


The pilot-in-command of an aircraft shall, whether manipulating the controls or not, be
responsible for the operation of the aircraft in accordance with these regulations

Pre-flight Action
Before beginning a flight, the pilot-in-command of an aircraft shall become familiar with all
available information appropriate to the intended operation. Pre-flight action for flights away
from the vicinity of the aerodrome, and for all IFR flights, shall include a careful study of
available current weather reports and forecasts, taking into consideration fuel requirements
and an alternative course of action if the flight cannot be completed as planned.



AUTHORITY OF PILOT IN COMMAND


The pilot in command of an aircraft shall have final authority as to the disposition of the

PSYCHOACTIVE SUBSTANCES



Testing For Psychoactive Substances


A crew member shall submit to a test to indicate the use of psychoactive substances and/or
alcohol in the blood when the GCAA has a reasonable basis to believe that a person may have
violated the provisions of &$5236 H RU&$5236 H  or as part of a GCAA
authorized screening programme. That person shall, upon request by the GCAA, furnish the
GCAA, or authorise any clinic, hospital, doctor, or other person to release to the GCAA, the
results of each test taken. Refusal to submit to a drug or alcohol test is grounds for immediate
suspension of that persons licence.



Test Information
$Q\WHVWLQIRUPDWLRQREWDLQHGE\WKH*&$$XQGHUSDUDJUDSK above may be evaluated in
determining a persons qualifications for any pilot or flight engineer licence or possible
violations of this Chapter and may be used as the basis for suspension or sanctions against
that licence as well as evidence in any legal proceeding.



CARRIAGE OF ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES


No person shall operate an aircraft within the United Arab Emirates with knowledge that
illegal substances, such as narcotic drugs, marijuana, depressant or stimulant drugs or
substances, are carried in the aircraft.
