AERONAUTICAL INFORMATION MANAGEMENT
Put simply…we are the team that manage all the aero data behind the scenes that enables the aviation system to work.
We look after everything “air-side”, so the moment you step through the boarding gate you are entering our world. We know and manage the length of the runway you will take off on, the boundaries of the airspace you will fly through and the flight paths your pilots will fly on.
The data we manage is used in the autopilots that the big jets rely on to fly and the radar screens Air Traffic Controllers use, so it’s pretty important stuff. Once you arrive at your destination our data informs crews and Air Traffic Controllers of the taxi-ways in operation to get you to the terminal.
