About the AIP
The AIP is published in four loose-leaf volumes:
- Volume 1 [Planning] contains all of the General, Enroute and Aerodrome parts including details of International Aerodromes.
- Volumes 2 & 3 [Instrument Flight Rules] are issued as a set and contain the information from the General and Enroute parts that is relevant to IFR operations. They contain details of all New Zealand aerodromes and heliports for which instrument procedures are published. Subscribers to these volumes also receive the Enroute and Area charts.
- Volume 4 [Visual Flight Rules] contains the information from the General and Enroute parts that is relevant to VFR operations. Aerodrome charts and associated VFR procedures are included.
AIP supplements are normally issued as a stapled booklet which is reissued every 28 days. Some Supplements, that concern one subject and will be in effect for a lengthy period, are issued as stand alone booklets. (Details of these are included in the regular supplement).
AIC are issued as a stapled booklet, normally containing all valid AIC. Subscribers to the AIP amendment service receive AIC as part of their subscription. AIC are issued as required. (as a minimum once a year)
Enroute and Area charts are normally updated and published twice a year. Subscribers to Volumes 2 & 3 of the AIP receive these charts as part of their amendment service.
Visual Navigation and Planning charts are reviewed annually and updated and reissued as required. Reissue will depend on the nature and number of changes that have occurred. Due to the unpredictability of changes an amendment service is not currently available and it is not always possible to predict when an individual chart will be reissued.
MERRY CHRISTMAS We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
