06.10.2020.- Release 4.3.0

Welcome to the new AIS-Portal

With this Release we are converting all forms to a responsive web design, delivering better usability on mobile devices. Customers had frequently expressed a need for such responsiveness.


To log in, you only need your e-mail address and password. The username is no longer needed as this improves usability on mobile devices.

Add aircraft and share them with other users

The core of the new AIS-Portal is the aircraft database. Here you can add, manage and share your aircraft with other users, or use the shared aircraft of other users for your flight preparation.

Before you can submit your first flight plan, you must add the aircraft. All data relevant to the aircraft are stored in your profile and transferred to the FPL form. In the Profile section, other preferences can be pre-set, such as [Flight rule=VFR] for pilots who do not have an IFR licence.

Flight plan

The most significant change is in the flight plan form. The input mask has been redesigned and restructured to reduce complexity. We applied the principle of mobile first to make inputting a flight plan on a mobile phone and tablet work as smoothly as possible. You can still use your PC to enter flight plans.

After you have selected your aircraft, click through the four steps of the flight plan mask, complete the data for the current flight plan, and change preassigned fields where necessary.

Under Route Suggestions you can find previously used routes. For flights with an IFR portion, you can also find the Route Proposals from Eurocontrol's Network Manager (NM).

As usual, you will receive the confirmation as soon as the flight plan has been processed in the AIS-C or accepted by the IFPS.

PIB requests / VFReBulletin

In the briefing forms, the selection of the aircraft is optional.

In the NOTAM briefing, there is no chart to select the FIRs for technical reasons. When writing, the FIR assistant opens with suggestions from which you can choose.

FIRs and ADs are now available worldwide — in the VFReBulletin the restriction to Germany + neighbouring countries has been removed.

Please take a look at our
