AIP

The Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) is the basic aviation document intended primarily for use by aviation personnel of international and domestic commercial or private aviation for flight planning and flight operations in Estonian airspace and at Estonian aerodromes.

The AIP of Estonia is available only in electronic form as HTML and PDF format and is published in Estonian and in English.

The AIP in electronic format (eAIP) is published on the Internet and is available at aim.eans.ee and eaip.eans.ee. Estonian AIP is also available on EAD PAMS.

AIP Supplement

AIP Supplement (SUP) is a temporary amendment containing temporary changes of long duration (three months and longer) or information of short duration which consists of extensive text and/or graphics, supplementing the permanent information contained in the AIP. Operationally significant temporary changes to the AIP are published in accordance with the AIRAC system and its established effective dates and are identified by the acronym AIRAC (AIRAC AIP SUP).

AIP Supplements, which are published between publication of two eAIP Packages, are made available via current aim.eans.ee web page and EAD PAMS.

AIC

Aeronautical Information Circular (AIC) is a document containing information on the long-term forecast of any major changes 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 administrative matters.

AICs, which are published between publication of two eAIP Packages, are made available via current aim.eans.ee web page and EAD PAMS.

AD obstacles

In aerodrome obstacle data there are published obstacles around the aerodrome, classified according to the following areas in accordance with ICAO Annex 15 and PANS-AIM:

Area 2 - Surroundings of the airport up to 45 km
Area 3 - Aerodrome movement area
Area 4 - Altimeter area in front of the runway for precision approach, CAT II and CAT III

The following information can be found with obstacles:

ID - Obstacle ID
Type - The type of obstacle, respectively
Latitude - Latitude in DDMMSS format
Longitude - Longitude in DDDMMSS format
Latitude_DEG - Latitude in full degrees
Longitude_DEG - Longitude in full degrees
Elevation (FT) - The height of the obstacle in feet
Height (FT) - The height of the obstacle above the ground in feet
Marking - The obstacle is marked according to the requirements
Lighting - The obstacle is illuminated as required
Lighting color - The color of the obstacle lighting
Lighting type - Type of obstacle lighting
Remark - Remarks

Obstacle information is published for each aerodrome in separate files XLS and KMZ (openable with GoogleEarth) in the form of point, line and polygon.

The aerodrome obstruction file is available for download in ZIP format.

VFR Information Guide

The VFR Information Guide includes relevant information and also restrictions for the use of VFR aerodromes.

Information about an aerodrome or a heliport can be published in the VFR Information Guide upon application to AIM Department of Estonian ANS. Estonian ANS is not authorised to publish any information about aerodromes or heliports in the VFR Information Guide unless the respective Aerodrome/Heliport Holder (expresses) has an interest in it.

The Aerodrome Holder is responsible for the consistency, reliability and high quality of data.

The Estonian ANS is not responsible for errors in the information which may emerge during data delivery and any damage originating from any inaccuracies or incompleteness of the data.

The Estonian ANS is responsible for the publication of the information in a standard format and also for making it internationally accessible.

The VFR Information Guide will be updated according to received information.

VFR Chart

This VFR chart is constructed on Lambert conformal conical projection.

The aeronautical data shown are consistent with the use of the chart for low speed visual air navigation. It includes aerodromes, significant obstacles, elements of the ATS system, prohibited, restricted and danger areas, and radio navigation aids.

The chart provides information to satisfy visual air navigation and is also used as a pre-flight planning chart.

AIRAC Calendar

When planning their activities Data originators must be aware about the dates when the raw data must be submitted to the AIP Group to ensure the timely publication of aeronautical information.

AIRAC calendar contains AIRAC effective and publication dates. Separate raw data dates are determined for AIRAC AIP SUP and AIRAC AIP AMDT. For every AIRAC cycle it is visible for Data originator how many days are left to submit their proposals for the aeronautical information to be published and become effective in a relevant AIRAC cycle.

Additionally, the calendar contains the dates when the draft of aeronautical information products must reach the CAA the latest for final confirmation.
