ATS 3.37 RELAY OF FLIGHT INFORMATION FROM AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE TO AIRCRAFT

ICAO SARPS state that Air Traffic Services are required to provide flight information. Despite it not being the most accurate and efficient method, it is often the Air Traffic Controller that assumes responsibility for broadcasting this information. Although several new techniques are being developed, suitable tools and techniques are not always available to the controller.

This paper provided information about current developments and implementations and proposed policy regarding the development of new technologies.

The presentation stressed that it is a huge job to meet all the ICAO requirements about the passing of information, which can include a lot more than just SIGMET and AIRMET information. It can be difficult to determine if pilots have received up to date flight information.


IFATCA Policy is:

IFATCA encourages the development of technologies to automate the provision of Flight Information Service.


See: Resolution B4 – WP 92 – Bali 2013

IFATCA Policy is:

When flight information is provided through automatic data transmission systems, clear procedures shall be established and the allocation of tasks and responsibilities shall be clearly determined.


See: Resolution B5 – WP 92 – Bali 2013
