FAR 91.157 Special VFR (Helicopters):


If weather at your arrival / departure airport is below VFR minimums or the ceiling is less than 1,000’ (reported) then we can request Special VFR.

To receive Special VFR in controlled airspace we must:


• Request it from ATC; and
• Remain Clear of Clouds (other than Helicopters requires 1 SM flight visibility and remain Clear of Clouds)

Note: Helicopters can request SVFR day or night and we must use our best judgement to determine if the conditions are safe to fly in.
