Preserving Data Integrity

To ensure the integrity of aeronautical information and data (AI/D) is maintained from origination to distribution, NAV CANADA is formalizing the provision of AI/D. Corrupt, erroneous, late or missing aeronautical information and data can lead to potential safety risks.

Overview of Mechanisms

The following mechanisms are part of the global transition to more dynamic, integrated, immediate and accessible data-centred Aeronautical Information Management (AIM):

  • Formal Arrangements: Aeronautical Information and Data concerning Private Meteorological Services
  • Aeronautical Data and Information other than Private Meteorological (MET) Services
  • Aircraft Movement Surface Condition Reports (AMSCR)
  • External Instrument Procedure Designs
  • Air Operator Designator and Call Sign Requests
  • Land Use Program
  • Level of Service Policy

Non-Private Meteorological Service AI/D

Direct all aeronautical data submissions and questions to NAV CANADA AIM Data Collection.

Aircraft Movement Surface Condition Reports

Online Accountable Source Systems (ACS)

Reporting authorities can upload Aircraft Movement Surface Condition Reports (AMSCR) directly to the NAV CANADA system using the SNOWiz web application (via the ACS websiteOpen a new window).

This information is immediately available to customers on the Collaborative Flight Planning System (CFPS) and Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunications Network (AFTN) as a NOTAMJ. Authorities with an automated reporting system can benefit from the direct web service that links their system directly with the NAV CANADA system.

AMSCR Materials

The single-runway AMSCR form is primarily intended for aerodromes with one runway. The form can be used for aerodromes with multiple runways as long as the number of pages in the fax transmission is clearly indicated; for example, page 1 of 1, page 1 of 2.

External Instrument Procedure Designs

Aerodromes may access the services of contractors to conduct specific work related to instrument flight procedures. NAV CANADA collectively refers to instrument design contractors as External Design Organizations (EDOs). EDOs register with NAV CANADA and have submission requirements allowing NAV CANADA to review and publish their submitted designs to ensure accuracy and compliance to regulations and instrument procedure design criteria.
