I am from Brazil. My crew and I will fly to France, Portugal and Switzerland. I am accustomed to flying to the USA, but it will be my first time to Europe, and I am studying the differences. Which documents and manuals do you recommend that I study and read? (Note: I want names not resource location)

  • $\begingroup$ Doesn't your company have materials to prep you for entry into these countries? Maybe I'm not getting it clearly, but are you saying that you and your "crew" are the airline crew, or some other kind of crew? $\endgroup$ – Ron Beyer Jan 13 '16 at 14:17

  • $\begingroup$ We do have materials, and they will pay a course too, but we'd like to read more about procedures, contingencies and etc. $\endgroup$ – eduardoguilherme Jan 13 '16 at 15:22

    $\begingroup$ There is a lot to learn, especially about the crossing but also about the differences in the way that they do things. I would highly recommend taking an International Procedures course. These are offered by the major training centers, as well as various online / home study courses. $\endgroup$ – Lnafziger Jan 13 '16 at 16:19
  1. For common procedures and or VFR rules you want to check the respective countries' AIP:

  2. you may want to check the website of Eurocontrol here you can find IFR standard arrivals and departures

No warranty! Please prepare your flight carefully.
