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.

00-61 AFS-800 Event Planning Guide Describes acceptable methods for organizing the aviation community for all events, such as major sports events (auto racing, golf, etc.) It is not limited to sporting events, but can be used whenever there is a large amount of aviation activity on an infrequent basis and open gatherings of people. The goal of this AC is to enhance air and ground safety. This AC does not include events that require FAA Form, 7711-1, Application for Certificate of Waiver or Authorization. 07-24-2000

00-58B AFS-230 Voluntary Disclosure Reporting Program 04-29-2009
00-57 AND-720 Hazardous Mountain Winds and Their Visual Indicators Assists pilots involved in aviation operations to diagnose the potential for severe wind events in the vicinity of mountainous areas. It provides information on preflight planning techniques and on in-flight evaluation strategies for avoiding destructive turbulence and loss of aircraft control. Pilots, dispatchers, air traffic controllers, and other who must deal with weather phenomena and the routing of aircraft will benefit from the information contained in this advisory circular. 09-10-1997
00-56B AFS-300 Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program

 

This advisory circular (AC) describes a system for accrediting civil aircraft parts distributors based on voluntary industry oversight. The AC also provides information for developing accreditation programs. We, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), strongly endorse participation in such a program to help certificated persons establish the eligibility of parts and products for installation on U.S. type-certificated (TC) products. We have revised this AC to meet current changes in regulatory requirements and industry practices since original publication. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. Any mandatory language used in this AC applies only to those who choose to voluntarily participate in this program; those who do choose to participate must follow the processes and procedures described in this AC in their entirety to be considered compliant with this program.

00-54 AFS-200 Pilot Windshear Guide Communicates key windshear information relevant to flight crews. Appendix 1 of this advisory circular is the Pilot Windshear Guide, which is only one section of the two-volume Windshear Training Aid. 11-25-1988
00-46E AFS-200 Aviation Safety Reporting Program

 This advisory circular (AC) describes the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Aviation Safety Reporting Program (ASRP) which utilizes the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as a third party to receive and process Aviation Safety Reports. This cooperative safety reporting program invites pilots, controllers, Flight Attendants (F/A), maintenance personnel, dispatchers, and other users of the National Airspace System (NAS), or any other person, to report to NASA actual or potential discrepancies and deficiencies involving the safety of aviation operations. The operations covered by the program include departure, en route, approach, and landing operations and procedures; air traffic control (ATC) procedures and equipment; crew and ATC communications; aircraft cabin operations; aircraft movement on the airport; near midair collisions (NMAC); aircraft maintenance and recordkeeping; and airport conditions or services. The effectiveness of this program in improving safety depends on the free, unrestricted flow of information from the users of the NAS. Based on information obtained from this program, the FAA will take corrective action as necessary to remedy defects or deficiencies in the NAS. The reports may also provide data for improving the current system and planning for a future system.

00-1.1A AFS-800 Public Aircraft Operations

This advisory circular (AC) provides information to assist in determining whether government or government-contracted aircraft operations conducted within the territory of the United States are public or civil aircraft operations under the statutory definition of "public aircraft," in Title 49 of the United States Code (49 U.S.C.) §§ 40102(a)(41) and 40125 (the statute). Additionally, this AC contains Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) policy pertaining to civil aircraft operators that provide contract support to government entities. The intent of this material is to better define the responsibilities of the parties to these contracts. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. Nothing in this AC changes the legal requirement for public aircraft operators to comply with the statute.
