Introduction




Before we dive into the details of the book, let us first understand what are air regulations, who is RK Bali, and why is this book important for pilots.


What are air regulations?




Air regulations are the rules and regulations that govern the civil aviation sector in India. They are issued by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), which is the regulatory authority for civil aviation in India. Air regulations cover various aspects of aviation such as aircraft design, operation, maintenance, licensing, certification, safety, security, air traffic management, search and rescue, accident investigation, etc.


Air regulations are based on the standards and recommended practices (SARPs) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which is a specialized agency of the United Nations that sets the global framework for civil aviation. India is a signatory to the Chicago Convention of 1944, which established ICAO and its SARPs.


Air regulations are also influenced by the bilateral and multilateral agreements that India has with other countries on civil aviation matters. For example, India is a member of the South Asian Regional Initiative for Civil Aviation (SARICA), which aims to harmonize the air regulations among the South Asian countries.


Who is RK Bali?




RK Bali is a retired Wing Commander of the Indian Air Force (IAF), who has over 40 years of experience in aviation. He has flown various types of aircraft such as fighters, bombers, transporters, trainers, helicopters, etc. He has also served as an instructor, examiner, flight safety officer, air traffic controller, etc.


After retiring from the IAF, he became a civil aviation consultant and a pilot trainer. He has authored several books on aviation subjects such as air regulations, navigation, radiotelephony, meteorology, etc. He is also a regular contributor to various aviation magazines and journals.


He is widely regarded as one of the best and most experienced aviation experts in India. He has received many awards and honors for his contributions to the aviation sector, such as the President's Medal, the Vayu Sena Medal, the Bharat Gaurav Award, etc.
