The Day VFR (Aeroplane) Syllabus and the Day VFR (Helicopter) Syllabus have been enhanced to include contemporary aviation medical knowledge regarding the effects of alcohol and illicit drugs use on human performance.

The additional information, which is included in all new syllabi, can be purchased by industry personnel or can be accessed on the Authority's website. Please note however that the helicopter syllabus will be posted on the CASA website once the document has been reformatted and proof read.
