The Aeronautical Information Service's (AIS) Airport Mapping team creates and publishes the FAA Chart Supplements.
The submitting Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR) bears sole responsibility for the ownership and stewardship of Chart Supplement Notices. AIS claims no ownership or review responsibility after publication. AIS will not monitor or review to ensure any frequencies, phone numbers, addresses, facilities, and/or other data that are included are current or correct. AIS will not be the point of contact for questions by any Chart Supplement user requesting clarification of the information contained in the notice. The OPR is responsible for all questions and concerns related to their published Notice(s).
For information needed on the process to update or add a Notice, please note the following stipulations:
- The source for chart specific/aeronautical navigation based notices must be approved by an FAA official from either an ATC facility, FSS, or another FAA office willing to maintain responsibility. Military related notices may be published by authorized DoD offices willing to maintain responsibility.
- Finalized verbiage/graphic must be submitted for publishing. AIS does not compose, review or edit the substance of the Chart Supplement Special Notices section.
- The Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR), along with current contact information (office, phone number, e-mail) must be included.
- The OPR is responsible for maintaining the correctness and currency of the information contained in the notice.
- Notices accepted for publication should generally be considered valid for a period of 2 years. The OPR is responsible for validation and continued publication.
- Subsequent changes/revisions to related aeronautical information appearing elsewhere in the Chart Supplement will not automatically revise a special notice. For example, a frequency change occurring elsewhere in the Chart Supplement will not revise the Notice, nor are Notices cross-checked for such revisions.
- Submissions will be subject to agency review and approval. Submitter will be notified about final resolution.
The finalized notice must be submitted as a print-ready file, preferably as a PDF. This file should be attached and submitted using the Aeronautical Chart Change Form via the Aeronautical Information Portal website.
