The new AIS-Portal: making you more mobile

DFS, the German air navigation service provider, has launched a new layout and design for its AIS-Portal. The portal is a tool for pilots to prepare their flights online. Pilots can now access the portal’s contents and forms from their mobile devices.

14.10.2020.- Pilots can register free of charge at  www.dfs-ais.de to submit flight plans, flight-plan-associated messages or arrival messages for flights under visual flight rules (VFR) and instrument flight rules (IFR) in Germany, or for flights abroad

Parts of the forms for submitting flight plans can now be pre-filled automatically using templates. Aircraft data and other data can be saved in advance. These data can also be shared with other users. Stored routes can be selected with a click.

It is also possible to display and print NOTAM briefings for all flight information regions and aerodromes in the AIS-Portal. The relevant form has a new layout, as well, but the contents have remained the same.

Using the VFReBulletin, pilots can still retrieve the latest daily route-related NOTAM information and graphically display this information on charts.

Pilots who prefer the previous version can choose the link “Classic Version” on the website of the new AIS-Portal.

With 30,000 registered customers, the AIS-Portal is an important element of the services provided by the Aeronautical Information Service Centre (AIS-C).

Note: Two short clips are available at www.dfs-ais.de which will help customers familiarise themselves with the new features. In the case of questions, the AIS Centre is available 24/7.
