(AIP) Explained

The AIP is the overarching aviation document intended primarily to satisfy international requirements for the exchange of permanent aeronautical information and long duration temporary changes essential for safe and efficient air navigation. The Iraq AIP is published in one volume, comprising of 3 books. The AIP is published in an electronic format as a portable document format (.pdf) file, in English only, for use in international and domestic operation, whether the flight is a commercial, military or private one.

Amendments to the AIP are published every 56 days, providing 28 days notification before the re-publication of the full, updated AIP. The timelines for amendments and AIP publication and effective dates are in accordance with the 56 day AIRAC cycle. A checklist of AIP pages containing page number/chart title and the publication or effective date (day, month by name, and year) of the information is reissued with each edition.
