AIP-AAI OFFICIALLY IMPLEMENTED IN APPLICATION PRODUCED BY BOEING GROUP FOREFLIGHT
Josh Tahmasebi, Group Production Manager, explains the new features of the collaboration with Avioportolano the upcoming inclusion of information on Helipads and Vertiports
Avioportolano® srl (Venice - Italy) is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with Garmin® International Inc. (Kansas - USA) to provide textual and cartographic information related to Italian private runways open to GA and ULM traffic and related Avioportolano’s Aeronautical Cartography for air navigation in VFR mode. The information will be made accessible in the Garmin Pilot™ App for Apple® or Android mobile devices.
Thirty years ago, we were among the first to realise that the advent of ultralight aircraft would revolutionise tourist and sports aviation, ushering in a new chapter in aviation history. The liberalisation and simplification of rules introduced with the ULM favoured, in parallel, the emergence of a new category of runways: ‘Flying Fields’; simple grassy strips, mostly of modest size, which, a few years later, would give rise to a veritable network of minimalist private aviation infrastructure. Part of this network quickly structured itself into the more advanced "Registered Airfields" to accommodate General Aviation traffic, thus flanking the smaller airports, the prerogative of ‘certified’ aviation, and forming a sort of ‘parallel world’ to the one officially present in the AIP.
We are pleased to inform that on May 17, 2021 Avioportolano srl signed a supply agreement with Leonardo Spa, the main Italian company in the Aerospace, Defense and Security sector, among the top ten players globally. This agreement provides that - at the customer's request - the 1: 500,000 VFR navigation charts produced by Avioportolano srl with information relating to the Italian airfields and airfields are installed in the "Generator of digital maps on board helicopters" produced by Leonardo SPA.
- Boundaries updated and / or integrated information relating to approximately 38% of national airspace.
- 540 runways published (excluding disused ones).
- 317 runways updated (after 01/02/2019).
- 5 abandoned runways.
- 8 new runways.
- The new VFR sectors have been introduced with specific graphics for the moment limited to the Adige Valley and Cles.

The reason for choosing
APPROACH CHARTS:THE CHOICE OF THE 75K
The Avioportolano VAC (Visual Approach Chart) are produced in scale 1:75.000. ICAO standards provide for a scale of not less than the ratio 1:250.000 and this, in fact, is how they are almost always produced in the AIPs of the various countries. With the advent of GPS, the graphical representation on this scale is often superfluous and greater information detail is more useful on a larger scale. The VAC (Visual Approach Chart) produced by AVIOPORTOLANO responds to this line
