What is the eAIP?

The electronic version of the Swiss AIP (IFR) is based on a specification created by Eurocontrol and makes the aeronautical information viewable through an internet browser. This is achieved by providing the AIP content in an HTML presentation for easy reading and navigation. At the same time, the aeronautical information contained in the AIP is also available as a PDF for printing. Generally, the PDF files should be used for printouts as their pages contain the effective date, the page numbers and the amendment number whereas the HTML content has no notion of pages and is printed without this information. Also, the PDF files are digitally signed to protect their integrity. Please refer to the section "PDF" later in this guide.
