AeroData

AeroData consists of airspace- and SUAS boundaries, airports and related information, NavAids, reporting points, obstacles, and place names. The primary purpose of AeroData is to support EasyVFR 4, however, AeroData can also be exported for use in many modern avionics systems (EFIS). 

The AeroData is continuously updated; every 2 hours a new Intermediate AeroData set becomes available which holds the very latest changes. To support the varying needs and situation of users, there are 4 categories of AeroData, which relate to the source and currency of the data - AIP Maintained, AIP Pending, AIP Legacy, and non-AIP.

  AeroData categories:
 

CAT 1+ AIP information and Non-AIP supplement

Western Europe

Derived from the official Aeronautical Information Publications (AIP) and updated according to the ICAO 28-day AIRAC cycle (if applicable to that specific region). This data is professionally maintained to the highest standards of currency and reliability.
It is supplemented with airport information, obstacles, and place names which are not published in AIP.
A wealth of aviation information does not appear in official records but is highly sought after by pilots, primarily to assist with flight planning and to augment official publications. This data is derived from many sources and typically provided by EasyVFR users as their contribution to the common-good. By its nature it is very difficult to ensure currency and is provided on an "all care, no responsibility basis".

 

CAT 1 AIP information only.

United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand

Derived from the official Aeronautical Information Publications (AIP) and updated according to the ICAO 28 or 56 day cycle (as applicable to that specific region). This data is professionally maintained to the highest standards of currency and reliability.

  CAT 2 - AIP PENDING
Derived from AIP LEGACY but in the process of being upgraded to AIP MAINTAINED. The conversion process typically takes up to 3 cycles (3 months). AIP PENDING is more reliable than AIP LEGACY but should be treated as indicative only and not relied upon as current.
 

CAT 3 - AIP LEGACY

Rest of the world.
Derived from AIP sources at 31 October 2006 and not structurally maintained. This data is provided to support small but growing General Aviation countries. It should be treated as indicative only and not relied upon as current. AIP LEGACY is upgraded to AIP MAINTAINED as demand warrants.

After two years of building EasyVFR 4 from the ground up, we are ready for you to join us and become a test pilot! Over the next weeks we will invite more and more users to evaluate EasyVFR 4. If you are interested to help us, please sign up below. At some point we will need to test EasyVFR compatibility with certain devices, that is why we need to know the type of devices you use.
