00-63A AFS-400 Use of Cockpit Displays of Digital Weather and Aeronautical Information

This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance to flightcrew members and other airmen on the use of data link to access Flight Information Services (FIS). This AC addresses both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) FIS Broadcast (FIS-B) provided through the Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) network and non-FAA FIS systems provided through commercial data link services.

a. Flight Information Services (FIS). FIS is a service that provides Meteorological Information (METI) and Aeronautical Information (AI) to enhance pilot awareness of weather and/or airspace constraints while providing information for decision support tools and improving safety. METI and AI data link services enable flightcrews to support the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) concepts of information sharing and provide airmen with a common operating picture necessary to support the evolving global Air Traffic Management (ATM) concepts.

b. Advantages of FIS METI and AI. FIS of METI and AI can augment pilot voice communications with Flight Service Stations (FSS), other air traffic control (ATC) facilities, airline dispatch centers, flight following facilities or other Operation Control Centers (OCC), typically referred to as System Operations Control (SOC). In addition, Internet connectivity provides the capability for Baseline Synchronization Services (BSS) to be utilized to update the aircraft’s navigational and other databases prior to flight.

120-16F AFS-300 Air Carrier Maintenance Programs

 

This advisory circular (AC) explains what the term "maintenance program" means. Our explanation describes the scope and content of air carrier aircraft maintenance programs. This is important as there is a significant difference between an air carrier maintenance program and an inspection program used in non-air carrier maintenance operations. We explain the background of these programs as well as the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) regulatory requirements. We also describe and explain each of the 10 elements of air carrier maintenance programs. When we use "must" or "will" in this AC, we are referencing actual regulatory requirements. When we use "we," "us," or "our" in this AC, we mean the FAA. When we use "you," "your," or "yours," we mean you, the air carrier. When we use the term "person," it has the same meaning as that in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 1, § 1.1.
