Similar to Special Operations being an integral part of real-world aviation, it is also an integral part of IVAO and its aviation simulation. In order for Special Operations to have its place in the virtual skies of IVAO and due to its nature, the Special Operations Department (SOD) has been established to regulate the use of Special Operations on the IVAO network environment.

Special operations are highly regulated and are subject to several rules and regulations, both international and divisional.

International rules

The international part of the regulations is set in the “SO Directive”. All rules were written there apply to all special operations in the world. You can find the directive here: SO Regulations.
