Consultation Draft Part 175 of CASR – Aeronautical information management
Corrupt or erroneous aeronautical data and aeronautical information can potentially affect the safety of air navigation. The role and importance of aeronautical data and aeronautical information changed significantly with the implementation of area navigation (RNAV), required navigation performance (RNP), airborne computer-based navigation systems and data link systems which rely on the integrity of aeronautical data and aeronautical information that is provided by the aeronautical information management system. The requirements relating to aeronautical information management derive from ICAO, Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA)/European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment (EUROCAE), the Civil Aviation Regulations 1988 (CAR) and other sources.
ICAO requires, under Annex 15 to the Chicago Convention, that Contracting States provide an Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) that publishes aeronautical data and aeronautical information as an Integrated Aeronautical Information Package (IAIP).
Regulation 233 (1) (h) of CAR requires that pilots carry aeronautical maps, charts, aeronautical information and instructions, published in the AIP or by a person approved by CASA, that are relevant to the route being flown and any alternate route that may be flown.
Additionally, the details of waypoints and navigation aids are contained in navigation system databases such as Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), Flight Management Computers (FMC) and Flight Management Systems (FMS).
