It is hereby notified for general information that the Imperial Colonial Air Navigation Order, 1955, was
made by Her Majesty in Council on the 6th May, 1955, was laid before Parliament on the same date, and will come
into force on the 1st July, 1955.
2. This Order revokes and re-enacts with certain amendments, the provisions of the Colonial Air Naviga-
tion Order, 1949, and its amending Orders.
The principal changes are as follows:-
(a) for aircraft which carry or are intended to carry passengers and goods for hire or reward there
are new requirements for certifying the maintenance of the aircraft and new provisions for keeping
records of flying hours and records of defects;
(b) for public transport aircraft there are new requirements for the training practice and periodical
tests of every member of the personnel and for records of such practice and tests;
(c) holders of licences issued by any Contracting State may, subject to any limitations of the terms
of the licence or of the law of the issuing State, form part of the operational crews of aircraft flown in
the Colony, other than public transport and aerial work aircraft;
(d) flight engineers and flight navigators licences (cadet class) are abolished;
(e) power is reserved to the Governor, in relation to the carriage and use of instruments and equip-
ment, to require them and the manner of their installation or stowage to be approved in writing, and to
require passengers to be instructed in the use of equipment;
(f) the concessional circumstances under which young persons between fourteen and sixteen
years of age were permitted to be in sole control of gliders have been withdrawn;
(Q) provision has been made for the extra-territorial application of the Order to persons as well as
to aircraft;
(h) in colonial territories to which provisions of the Visiting Forces Act, 1952, are extended, the
Order will not apply to military aircraft in the service of a visiting force (unless flown and commanded
by a civilian) or to members of such a force acting in the course of their duty, except in the circum-
stances mentioned in Articles 51 and 54;
(i) amendments are made to certain of the rules in Schedule II (Rules of the Air and Air
Traffic Control): in section IV (Visual Flight Rules), permission from Air Traffic Control will be
required for landing, taking off at erodromes in control zones in the event of low cloud ceiling as well
as of restricted ground visibility; in section V (Instrument Flight Rules), a minimum altitude of 1,000 ft.
is imposed for aircraft flying in I.F.R. weather conditions, and a new requirement for aircraft to inform
Air Traffic Control on landing or leaving controlled airspace; the requirements in this section relating to
radio communication and reporting of position are re-stated; in section VI (Additional General Rules),
airspaces may be notified, in which air traffic clearance from Air Traffic Control will be obligatory for all
flights; in Section XII (Lights and other signs to be shown by aircraft), flashing navigation lights will be
obligatory after 1st June, 1956, for aircraft whose maximum permissible total weight exceeds 12,500 11.;
aircraft registered outside the Colony when flying over the Colony may display either the lights specified
in the section or those specified in the International Standards published by the International Civil
Aviation Organisation.
The Rules relating to the mooring and manoeuvring of seaplanes on the water and of the lights to be shown
by them are now contained in The Collision Regulation (Ships and Seaplanes on the Water) and Signals of Distress
(Ships) Order, 1953 (S.I. 1953/1557 (1953 I, p. 1157)).
3. A copy of the Order, which is of considerable length,, may be seen if desired at the office of the Colonial
Secretary, an Administrator or Commissioner and it will in due course form part of the bound volume of the laws of
the Colony for 1955.
