NATS publishes first electronic aeronautical information publication.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2011 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

NATS, the UK's air traffic management provider, on Tuesday announced it has published the first electronic Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) Amendment.

The AIP has been rendered entirely from digitally managed data and is published every 28 days by NATS under the terms of its license.

AIP is a guide for pilots and provides them with operational information on airspace and airfields in the UK, which used to be complied through manual imput, which was vulnerable to human error.

The May AIP Amendment, which is said to be indistinguishable to the end user from traditionally-produced AIPs, was extracted from Nucleus, NATS' centralised management system for managing and publishing critical aeronautical data.
