is fully instructed as to the duties and responsibilities to be discharged
by him in the capacity in which he is acting as such member and
as to the relationship of such duties and responsibilities to the opera-
tions system on any air route over which he may be called upon to
discharge the same and that he has adequate knowledge of every such

(b) As to any flight to be made by the aircraft otherwise than on a
scheduled journey, the operator shall specify in the said Manual the
method by which the aerodrome meteorological minima for each aero..

route of such a flight shall be determined:
Provided that, if any such aerodrome will frequently be used, the
operator shall establish such minima for that aerodrome and shall
specify such minima in the said Manual.
(8) When a flight is planned in circumstances where the meteoro-
logical information obtained by the person in command of the aircraft
which will be engaged therein indicates that Instrument Flight Rules
will be in force at the aerodrome of first intended landing, he shall
select an alternate aerodrome unless no such aerodrome suitable for
use in the circumstances of the case is available.
