Mobile AIP brings together two important developments - mobile internet and aeronautical information management.
The spread of mobile internet technology has meant that more people than ever before are accessing online resources using handheld devices such as mobile phones. Current predictions say that by the end of 2011, there will be a billion mobile internet users worldwide.
Aeronautical information management (AIM) was developed by EUROCONTROL and its international partners to ensure that aeronautical information was available in a timely fashion, taking advantage of modern technology. The concept is described by EUROCONTROL as The right digital aeronautical information, at the right place at the right time.
Mobile AIP brings mobile internet and AIM together. Now the right place for aeronautical information is in the palm of your hand, wherever you are.
Mobile AIP and is designed for displaying aeronautical information from any AIP system. AIS providers should email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
