The data sourced globally includes original and processed NOTAM, SNOWTAM and ASHTAM messages, as well as minimum sets of static data operation (SDO) required for NOTAM validation and pre-flight information bulletin (PIB) generation, including aerodromes identification with associated runways, airspaces (FIR, UIR, TMA, P-D-R pre-determined routes), routes, navaids and waypoints.
Data from ECAC States and beyond includes original and processed NOTAM, SNOWTAM and ASHTAM, AIPs, AICs, amendments, supplements, charts, as well as full set of aeronautical information data published in AIP. It also covers aerodrome information including procedures, obstacles, en-route information such as airspace, routes, navaids and waypoints, and general information such as organisation, authority and units.
