Ais aim sg 8


Chapter 6 Sub-Group

ICAO Headquarters, November 2013



  • Summary of progress until AIS AIM SG7

  • Key-points from Friedrichshafen

  • Other inputs during informal ad-hoc meetings

  • Final status





Value-added service with customized presentation of aeronautical information and data


Provision of aeronautical information in a standardized pre-defined presentation


Provision of digital data services

The main drivers


Service 1 = “legacy” (existing products)

Service 2 = “data sets” (complete or thematic)

  • Split between Annex and PANS (“what” vs “how”)

  • Continuity wrt previous amendments

  • Consistency with Chapter 4

  • Need to address the update service (link with Chapter 5)

  • Required incentive for Service 2 – releasing some obligations linked to Service 1

  • Having a reference to added-value services

Chapter 6 service 1

Chapter 6 – Service 1

  • States shall provide the following aeronautical information products:

    • AIP, AIP amendments, AIC and SUP

    • Aeronautical charts (as prescribed in Annex 4)

    • NOTAMs / SNOWTAMs / ASHTAMs and summaries and checklists

    • PIBs

  • States should provide the following aeronautical information products:

    • Aeronautical charts (as recommended in Annex 4)

    • eAIP

    • Electronic aeronautical charts


Chapter 6 service 2

Chapter 6 – Service 2

  • The data included in Chapter 4 shall be provided through data services under one of the following forms:

    • a complete data set

    • several thematic data sets

  • Data sets shall be categorized according to the following themes: terrain, obstacle, aerodrome mapping, en-route, aerodrome, instrument flight procedure design.

    • Note: the selection of thematic data sets is intended to facilitate their use by digital data set users.

  • States shall ensure that thematic data sets related to their entire territory are made available in the manner specified in x.x for use by international civil aviation.

Chapter 4


Chapter 6 update service

Chapter 6 – Update Service

  • An update service shall provide an update to the previously issued data set.

    • Update service for operationally significant changes (equivalent to “NOTAM criteria”) allowing for immediate issuance to operational users.

    • Update to their data set according to a fixed schedule (a.k.a. AIRAC).

Chapter 5



  • Summary of progress until AIS AIM SG7

  • Key-points from Friedrichshafen

  • Other inputs during informal ad-hoc meetings

  • Final status

Fdh main discussion items

FDH main discussion items

  • Service 1 and Service 2 characteristics (eg format, metadata, etc.) need to be captured (in A15 or in PANS-AIM)

  • Note on value-added services subject to various opinions (req’d / not req’d).

  • PIB – argument as to whether this is a product or already a service – also it has no equivalent in Service 2

  • Data quality requirements: only prescriptive or as documented in metadata (so that prescriptive req’ts do not prevent States from providing data not meeting them all)

Service 1 progress

Service 1 - Progress

  • Header

  • Aeronautical Information Publications and Circulars

    • Contents

    • General specifications (including distribution + “form” that can be either paper or eAIP)

    • AIP amendments

    • AIP supplements

    • AIC

  • Aeronautical charts

    Charts that shall / should be made available

    Consequential amendment on Annex 4 (“availability” sections)

  • NOTAMs

    • Origination, specifications and distribution

    • Information provided by NOTAM shall be limited to the circumstances specified in PANS-AIM

  • Pre-flight Information (not “Bulletin”)

    • Post-flight to be covered under the QA umbrella

Service 2 progress

Service 2 - Progress

  • Header and incentives : AIP “except when an equivalent data set is made available” - reference to PANS-AIM

  • Digital data services: a very direct link with Chapter 4

    • E.g. “The elements listed in the sections 4.8 should be made available, for each aerodromes regularly used by international civil aviation, in the form of an "aerodrome data sets" except for the elements listed in sections 4.8.x,....”

  • Thematic data shall include metadata(details in PANS-AIM), including QR compliance or deviations

  • Distribution

    • Standard: “Through electronic means”

    • Recommendation: global interoperable communication network and web services (more in PANS)

    • Service Level Agreements section to be updated for exchange of data sets

Service 2 progress 2

Service 2 – Progress (2)

  • Update Service

    • Completely re-issued data set (then recommendation to identify differences)

    • and/or a sub-set that includes just the differences from the previously issued complete data set

    • PANS-AIM to highlight provisions for the complete re-issue of certain data sets when a significant amount of changes has accumulated

  • Digital NOTAMs

    • Add definition

    • Recommendation: when provided, they should apply the same format, distribution channels and temporal concepts as the baseline data service

Main action items from fdh

Main action items from FDH

  • Chapter 5: “food for thought” to be developed (re-use SG for Chapter 6)

  • Metadata: provisions to be developed (Action SH)

    • Based on Chapter 3 section on metadata

    • Add provisions re: DQR (and potential deviations)

  • IFPD

    • Need to present a Paper about our activity for the IFPP WGH (action PR)

    • Mention that we do not go from scratch (wrt elements in PANS-OPS about data to be provided through AIS)

    • The aim is that the IWG is formally tasked with development of the req’d IFPD data

  • Chapter 3 (in PANS-AIM) – action SH: develop new text based on Appendix 7 + other DQR tables from other Annexes (11 and 14)

  • PANS Chapter 6 (EN to propose a structure and contents and WG Ch 6 will further work on this)

  • SLA in Chapter 2 : develop some text about the use of SLA for exchange of data sets (action Kelly)

Fdh main point of divergence

FDH – Main point of divergence

  • “AIP data set” (only) vs “thematic data sets”

  • Data sets as “shall” or “should” (with applicability dates as required) - with due consideration to 3 aspects

    • Continuity

    • Incentive towards data sets

    • Phased approach

Informal ad hoc sessions

Informal ad-hoc sessions

  • ATIEC Conference August 2013 (presentation and review of the work progress)

    • Make a difference between electronic version and data services

    • Feeling that Pre-Flight is already a service

    • Single VS Multiple data sets…

  • Various F2F / webex sessions with Eurocontrol (link with Chapter 5)

    • Chapter 5 needs to include the aeronautical updates (AIP amdmt, SUP and NOTAMs)

    • Applicability dates should be linked to existing provisions

    • Need to include some provisions about access to data (querry / reply, etc.)

    • Single vs multiple data sets…

  • Assessment of pros and cons of single vs multiple data sets

Major Impact
