The service is provided in accordance with the provisions contained in ICAO Annex 15 â€“ Aeronautical Information Services.
The Aeronautical Information Service is responsible for the collection and dissemination of information for the entire territory of Georgia and for the airspace over the high seas encompassed by the Tbilisi Flight Information Region (FIR).
NOTAM and the related monthly checklists are issued via the Aeronautical Fixed Service (AFS), while PIB are made available at ARO â€“ Briefing office. All other elements of the specified package are distributed by the airmail.
The AIP is the basic aviation document intended primarily to satisfy international requirements for the exchange of permanent aeronautical information and long duration temporary changes essential for air navigation.
The AIP Georgia is AVBL in paper and electronic form for use in international and domestic operations, whether the flight is a commercial or a private one. The text is in English only.
The paper AIP consists of one volume and is published in a loose-leaf form.
The AIP in electronic form (eAIP) is published on CD.
A brief description of the subjects affected by the amendment is given on the AIP Amendment cover sheet. New information included on the reprinted AIP pages is annotated or identified by a vertical line in the left margin (or immediately to the left) of the change/addition.
Each AIP page and each AIP replacement page introduced by an amendment, including the amendment cover sheet, are dated. The date consists of the day, month (by name) and year of the publication date (regular AIP AMDT) or of the AIRAC effective date (AIRAC AIP AMDT) of the information. Each AIP amendment cover sheet includes references to the serial number of those elements, if any, of the Integrated Aeronautical Information Package which have been incorporated in the AIP by the amendment and are consequently cancelled.
Each AIP AMDT and each AIRAC AIP AMDT are allocated separate serial numbers which are consecutive and based on the calendar year. The year, indicated by two digits, is a part of the serial number of the amendment, e.g. AIP AMDT 1/99; AIRAC AIP AMDT 1/99.
A checklist of AIP pages containing page number/chart title and the publication or effective date (day, month by name and year) of the information is reissued with each amendment and is an integral part of the AIP.
Temporary changes of long duration (three months and longer) and information of short duration which consistsof extensive text and/or graphics, supplementing the permanent information contained in the AIP, are published as AIP Supplements (AIP SUP). Operationally significant temporary changes to the AIP are published in accordance with the AIRAC system and its established effective dates and are identified clearly by the acronym AIRAC AIP SUP.
AIP Supplements are separated by information subject (Generalâ€”GEN, En-routeâ€”ENR and Aerodromesâ€”AD) and are placed accordingly at the beginning of each AIP Part. Supplements are published on yellow paper to be conspicuous and to stand out from the rest of the AIP. Each AIP Supplement (regular or AIRAC) is allocated a serial number which is consecutive and based on the calendar year, i.e. AIP SUP 1/99; AIRAC AIP SUP 1/99.
An AIP Supplement is kept in the AIP as long as all or some of its contents remain valid. The period of validity of the information contained in the AIP Supplement will normally be given in the supplement itself. Alternatively, NOTAM may be used to indicate changes to the period of validity or cancellation of the supplement.
The checklist of AIP Supplements currently in force is issued in the monthly printed plain-language summary of NOTAM in force.
NOTAM contain information concerning the establishment, condition or change in any aeronautical facility, service, procedure or hazard, the timely knowledge of which is essential for personnel concerned with flight operations. The text of each NOTAM contains the information in the order shown in the ICAO NOTAM Format and is composed of the significations/uniform abbreviated phraseology assigned to the ICAO NOTAM Code complemented by ICAO abbreviations, indicators, identifiers, designators, call signs, frequencies, figures and plain language. NOTAM are originated and issued for Tbilisi FIR and are distributed in three series identified by the letters G, N, and S.
Series G. General rules, en-route navigation and communication facilities, airspace restrictions and activities taking place within Tbilisi FIR and information concerning international aerodromes.
Series N. Information on National Aerodromes.
Series S (SNOWTAM). Information concerning snow, slush, ice or standing water associated with snow and slush and ice in the movement areas. SNOWTAM are prepared in accordance with ICAO Annex 15, Appendix 2, and are issued by the individual aerodrome directly, with separate serial numbers. Details are given in the Snow plan in the Aerodrome (AD) Part.
Pre-flight Information Bulletins (PIB), which contain a recapitulation of current NOTAM and other information of urgent character for the operator/flight crews, are available at all Briefing offices (BOF). The extent of the information contained in the PIB is indicated under subsection GEN 3.1.5.
The Aeronautical Information Circulars (AIC) contain information on the long-term forecast of any major change in legislation, regulations, procedures or facilities; information of a purely explanatory or advisory nature liable to affect flight safety; and information or notification of an explanatory or advisory nature concerning technical, legislative or purely administrative matters. AICs are divided by subject and are issued in two series (A and B). AIC Series A contains information affecting international civil aviation and is given international distribution, while AIC Series B contains information affecting national aviation only and is given national distribution.
Each AIC is numbered consecutively within each series on a calendar year basis. The year, indicated by two digits, is a part of the serial number of the AIC, e.g. AIC A 1/99; AIC B 1/99. A checklist of AIC currently in force is issued as an AIC once a year.
A checklist of valid NOTAM is issued monthly via AFS. The checklist is followed by a printed summary of NOTAM distributed by mail to all recipients of the Integrated Aeronautical Information Package. It contains a plain language (in English) presentation of the valid NOTAM and information about the number of the latest issued AIP AMDT, AIRAC AIP AMDT, AIP SUP and AIC as well as the numbers of the elements issued under the AIRAC that will become effective or, if none, the NIL AIRAC notification.
The said publications can be obtained from the Aeronautical Information Service. Purchase prices are published in AIC Series A.
If no information was submitted for publication at the AIRAC date, a NIL notification will be issued by NOTAM not later than one AIRAC cycle before the AIRAC effective date concerned.
