The AIS is a key tool that gives us information such as available aerodrome facilities
If you are new to flying, whether that be helicopter or fixed wing, some of the information that pilots access pre-flight can seem inaccessible and intimidating – surely it must be intended for professional pilots and airlines?! In fact, aviation information in the UK is made available (free of charge) as a service provided by NATS – and you should make good use of it.
Just like UK weather information, it is actually easy to register for a free account and access a wealth of useful information that can help you make decisions before you fly and check facts that you may not be sure of.
Our free PDF download walks you through the whole process of how to find the AIS online, how to register your free account and then how to use the information that can help you become a more professional and a safer pilot.
