Pilots are no longer required to lodge details about tracks, headings, true air and ground speeds or time intervals. However, you have a responsibility to prepare and plan for your flight. Thorough pre-flight preparation is a good defence against an airspace infringement.
Ensure that you:
- have current charts to cover your entire operation
- consider Control Area (CTA) steps and restricted areas along and around your planned route
- have checked NAIPS for NOTAMS.
NAIPS Internet service
The National Aeronautical Information Processing System (NAIPS) is a multi-function, computerised, aeronautical information system. It processes and stores meteorological and NOTAM information as well as enables the provision of briefing products and services to pilots and the Australian Air Traffic Control platform.
NOTAM originators are required to use their NAIPS User ID to access the NAIPS Internet Service (NIS) to check their NOTAM for correctness.
