RMS Technology (Booth No. 4642) recently announced major changes to the Flitesoft Commercial update service. The flight-planning program provides coverage in North America for turbine- and piston-powered aircraft. The Internet-based update service includes program changes, updates to the data every 28 days and raster images of current charts for planned routes. A full year of this service is $209, including updates to affected manual pages.
Today is the deadline for comments on last year’s announcement by the Department of Defense that it plans to remove its flight information publications (FLIP), digital aeronautical flight information file (DAFIF) and related aeronautical navigation digital and hardcopy publications from public sale.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) officially closed its public comment period regarding the proposal to remove from public sale and distribution its Flight Information Publications (FLIP), Digital Aeronautical Flight Information File (DAFIF) and related aeronautical safety-of-navigation digital and hardcopy publications.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) will go forward with a modified version of its previously announced proposal to remove its flight information publications (FLIP) and digital aeronautical flight information file (DAFIF) from public access.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in October will remove its non-U.S. flight information publications and digital aeronautical flight information file from public access. The plan, however, will not affect charts for the U.S., Caribbean and South America or Pacific, Australia and Antarctica in areas considered part of the U.S. Flight Information Region, for which NGA will distribute charts until October 2007.
