I’m using this post as a place to accumulate links to different countries’ online Aeronautical Information Publications (AIPs), which include airport directories, diagrams, etc. I’ll start with a few, and add more countries as I have time, or as people leave comments with links:
- Not available online; partial information is available here and here, but the actual directory of Canadian airports is paper-only, in the Canada Flight Supplement
- http://www.aipchile.cl/dasa/aip_chile_con_contenido/index.php (limited number of airports)
- Not available online
- http://www.slv.dk/Dokumenter/dsweb/View/Collection-95 (major airports only)
- Military aerodromes: http://www.mil-aip.de/
- Civilian aerodromes: not available online
- South Africa
All European AIPs. Requires free registration and is awful to use http://www.ead.eurocontrol.int/eadcms/eadsite/index.php.html
Pilot: thanks for extra links.

Netherlands (Holland): http://www.ais-netherlands.nl/
This is a very helpful list. Thanks.
Unfortunately every one I have looked at is just PDFs, and mostly in a format that isn’t conducive to scraping into digital information.
There’s some information about civilian airports and local traffic maps for Germany at http://www.airports.de/index.php?lang=en

Great work, David. Yes, particularly for Canada, how “quaint” to fight against the times this way. What government employees who are trying to ‘cut costs’ (read that, get out of work … I have 38 plus years as a government employee, so I am authorized to speak the language) don’t realize is, once you publish the info on line your work goes down tremendously … and that much more responsibility is transferred to the customer … so what about it all the other lag-behind countries?
Actually, Blake has FOUND CANADIAN DATA online!
I think this is new, at least I couldn’t find any when looking a few months ago.
Sarah: unfortunately, as Blake told me on Twitter, it’s only temporary — they put the CAP online because of a printing error in this cycle, that caused some text to be covered by the binding. Next cycle, they’ll probably disappear.
Flight simmers — download the CAP while you can!
AIM Canada is a free PDF publication (I’m talking about the digital edition).
DM: Thanks. Unfortunately, the Canadian AIM leaves out the most valuable part of the AIP, the airport directory. That’s published in the CFS, which is not available online.
Wow, that’s what I was looking for, what a information! present here at this webpage, thanks admin of this site.

Very good blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any
forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people
that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
