Organization and provision of flight information
air traffic services
Uncontrolled airspace (Class G) in which FEC is provided is established from the ground to the lower safe flight level for IFR flights, except for airspace:
- areas of airfields;
- takeoff and landing zones;
- restricted areas, flight restriction zones, dangerous zones, aviation work zones;
- flight zones (if installed)
- border strip 25 km wide.
Flight information service is provided:
- all aircraft flying in uncontrolled airspace (class G);
- if necessary, all aircraft whose flight this information may affect;
- Aircraft that are provided with air traffic control services or otherwise known to the appropriate ATS service.
The functions of flight information service and emergency notification of aircraft in the airspace, depending on local conditions, are assigned to the ATS unit (RC, VVP, DPP, KDP), or to a specially created flight information center.
The service providing flight information services performs an alert, which is carried out to notify the appropriate organizations of aircraft in need of assistance from search and rescue services and provide such organizations with the necessary assistance.Flight information service includes the following information (if any):
- information issued by the meteorological watch office on actual and/or expected certain weather phenomena along the flight route that may affect flight safety (SIGMET), as well as for aircraft flights that may affect flight safety at altitudes below the lower flight level (AIRMET);
- on reported or forecast weather conditions at aerodromes (sites, if information is available) of departure, destination and alternates;
- regarding weather conditions along the flight route, in which the flight may be impossible;
- the presence of clouds of volcanic ash;
- relating to the release into the atmosphere of radioactive substances or toxic chemicals;
- on changes in the operational state of radio equipment;
- on changes in the operational state of aerodromes (sites, if information is available);
- about unmanned aerial vehicles, or any other information that may affect flight safety (for example, about aircraft performing fuel dumping or aerial work in the area).
- any other information that may affect flight safety.
