Just gave it a quick skim. I really like what you've done! For a WIP, you've got a lot of detail in this and I especially like your excerpts near the end for aero, ATC, etc. Overall nice job on this!

I really like how you've done it and set it out, the only problem it has is that the English is quite hard to read at some points and doesn't actually make sense most of the time. I would suggest maybe getting some English members of the HQ or something to help you with maybe making it a bit more readable. Apart from that, it's great, well done.

It would be greate if someone make grammar correction and help make this handbook better.

Something I noticed while skimming.
The handbook wrote:Understand however that there is no minimum power requirement for destroying buildings,
etc.
There actually is, specified by MINIDAMG in the ground object .dat.

Again I've only brushed through it but there is some amazing detail in there. You should be really happy with what you've created and how it's set out. :D

Looks great, u2fly, but our information (GrunSol PMC, formerly Grun TFS) is invalid.

Grun TFS should be adjusted to GrunSolutions PMC (Grun TFS, VFA-121, SARF, 4AS).
Mahora Demo Team is currently Dissolved, and should be removed.
MahouAir should be added and use the (currently, I'll add the domain in the coming days) nonexistant domain of http://mahouair.cs.grunsol.com.
GrunSol PMC should use the url http://www.grunsol.com.
My old name needs to be changed (Mahora-27 to Nodoka "Nikki" Hanamura, and the link being to [redacted, NSFW Twitter Profile, pursuant to grievance filed by a YSFHQ member, YSFHQ TOS].
Other than that, great work!

Reason: Removed twitter link.
I'll be back, sooner or later. Hopefully with the right mentality for this community.

Other than that, great work!
In future, think, I will remove info about existing airways, teams and squadrons from this handbook because all them very often changed. Think, better would be replacing those lists with general info about what is virtual airway, aerobatic team, squadron and how setup it.

P.S.: Its a problem in YS world that VA and Squads can change their names and website during one year few times.
