The Aeronautical Information Service (AIS Poland) is a unit of the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PANSA) designated for the provision of aeronautical data and aeronautical information necessary for the safety, regularity and efficiency of air navigation within the Warszawa FIR. AIS Poland provides therefore aeronautical information products which comprise:
AIP Poland is prepared in accordance with the Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) set forth in Annex 15 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation - Aeronautical Information Services. This publication contains information on flight rules, airspace structure and aerodromes within the Warszawa FIR. Amendments to AIP Poland are published as required in accordance with the AIRAC cycle schedule.
AIP VFR contains information on rules and procedures applicable to VFR flights within the Warszawa FIR as set forth in the Regulation of the Ministry of Infrastructure on Aeronautical Information Services. Amendments and Supplements to the AIP VFR are published separately. All amendments and updates are published in accordance with the AIRAC cycle.
MIL AIP is published by PANSA in cooperation with the Military Air Traffic Service Office of the Polish Armed Forces. The Aeronautical Publications and Procedures Section of the Military Air Traffic Service Office of the Polish Armed Forces is responsible for collecting aeronautical data related to military aerodromes and providing them to PANSA. The MIL AIP contains general information on regulations and flight rules applicable to military aviation. Amendments and Supplements to the MIL AIP are published separately. All amendments and updates are published in accordance with the AIRAC cycle.
The airspace chart shows all airspace structures from GND to FL 660:
All heights/altitudes are provided in feet.
The Aeronautical Chart of Poland – ICAO is commonly known as the VFR Chart. The complete set consists of 6 separate laminated sheets (Gdańsk, Olsztyn, Poznań, Warsaw, Wrocław, Kraków). The chart contains aeronautical information from GND to FL 095. Colours of the chart have been extensively consulted with users of the Polish airspace. The views provided by users have been taken into account in the current edition. In addition, hypsometry instead of shading has been applied for illustration of topography which improved clarity of the chart.
The chart contains:
All heights/altitudes are provided in feet. The reverse side of each sheet has, among other elements, the chart key, AIRMET sectors, Morse code table, MRTs and altimeter setting regions. The chart is available on paper or laminated paper. It can also be purchased in the form of a wall chart on plain or photographic paper.
The AIM database on DVD contains all aeronautical data that are included in the AIS database and published in AIP Poland, AIP VFR Poland and MIL AIP Poland, including all spaces, obstacles, radio navigation aids as well as route and VFR points. The data is presented in the XML format compliant with AIXM 4.5 (optionally also available in AIXM 5.1 format).
AIS operations are not limited to products only. Days and months are spent on preparing the data to be exported cyclically (AIRAC) to systems used by ATC services (Pegasus_21, Traffic, CAT).The service offers also quality (ADQ) and software handling (PLX) training courses for providers of data to aeronautical information products. The courses are conducted by a small group of highly experienced specialists. Finally, it means tremendous responsibility, for the safety of airspace users depends on the quality of the products and services.
