Digital Products

Photoillustration of a Procedures Publication (d-TPP) is a presentation of the same data as the printed TPP, only in electronic format. The interface allows the user to search, view, and download all of the procedures found in the U.S. TPPs as PDF files. The entire d-TPP product can be downloaded from Digital - Terminal Procedures Publication/Airport Diagrams.

Coded Instrument Flight Procedures (CIFP) is a dataset modeled to the Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) Aeronautical Radio Incorporated (ARINC) Navigation System Data Base (NDB) international standard (ARINC 424). The CIFP file can be used as a basis to support both En route and Terminal GPS navigation. Currently, ARINC 424 versions 13, 15, and 18 are provided. Version 18 supports WAAS RNAV (GPS) Approaches. The CIFP is raw ARINC data. It will require additional processing before it can be loaded into an avionics system.

digital-Visual Charts (d-VC) are digital images of FAA Sectional, TAC and World Aeronautical Charts that have been georeferenced. Additional digital data may easily be overlaid on the raster image using commonly available Geographic Information System software. Data such as weather, temporary flight restrictions, obstacles, or other geospatial data can be combined with Sectional Aeronautical Raster Chart data to support a variety of needs.

digital-En Route Charts (d-EC) are scanned images of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) Charts that have been georeferenced in TIF format and also provided in PDF format for printing.

Digital Chart Supplements (DCS) consists of single and multiple page PDFs and an XML metadata file. The front and back matter pages are multiple page PDFs specific to each of the nine regions. The product consists of the same exact data found in our web application. Complete cover-to-cover PDFs are also available for download.

Digital Obstacle File (DOF) describes all known obstacles of interest to aviation users in the U.S., with limited coverage of the Pacific, the Caribbean, Canada, and Mexico. The obstacles are assigned unique numerical identifiers; accuracy codes, and listed in order by state.

National Flight Data Center (NFDC) provides aeronautical data and applications for both submitting and obtaining aeronautical data.
