Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) Websites

The AIS consists of the following publications:

  • Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP)- The AIP is a manual containing data regarding the organisation, operation and location of aerodromes, airspace, navigation aids and facilities as well as any information relevant to the safety of flight. The AIP has three parts:
    • GEN (general)
    • ENR (en route) - Includes VFR charts and IFR en-route charts (where available)
    • AD (aerodromes) - Includes aerodrome runway/taxiway diagrams, radio frequencies, VFR local area guides and IFR SID, STAR, and IAP diagrams
  • AIP Supplements - Used to notify temporary changes of long duration (usually more than three months) or changes requiring extensive text and/or diagrams
  • Aeronautical Information Circulars (AICs) - Contains information that does not qualify for inclusion into the AIP or a NOTAM. AICs are used to provide information which relates to flight safety, air navigation, technical, administrative or legislative matters.
  • Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) - Cover short duration or temporary changes or short notice permanent changes. They contain information concerning the establishment, condition or change in any aeronautical facility, service, procedure or hazard, the timely knowledge of which is essential to personnel concerned with flight operations.
