1. DO listen out on R/T from the time you leave dispersal until airborne and clear of circuit.
2. DO keep an eye on A.F.C.’s Caravan, or get one of your crew to do so and act immediately on any signal he may give you. This applies to taxying; taking off or landing.
3. DO call up on R/T before landing at night. By day always listen out and call up if in any doubt.
4. DO complete your cockpit drill before proceeding on to the runway so that you are ready to take off.
5. DO get off the runway as soon as possible after landing, and use the perimeter track for taxying, especially after dark. This track is always illuminated at night with blue and amber lights, when aircraft are moving, and is the only safe route to take to and from dispersal.
6. DO obey all instructions given to you by either F.C.O. or A.F.C. They are given for your safety and the safety of others.
7. DO have a look at the plan of the airfield lighting in the Ops Room or Watch Office before taking off at night. This will save you many headaches and unnecessary worry.
8. DO observe the Signals Square by day.

1. DON’T waist time on the runway after landing but taxy off without delay.
2. DON’T use any other runway than the one in use for take off and landing without first obtaining permission from Flying Control.
3. DON’T taxy on the runway in use at any time.
4. DON’T taxy across the runway in use without permission.
5. DON’T leave your R/T transmitter on and expect a reply.
