Abstract (English)

The approach presented in this paper describes a provisioning system for automatic digital distribution of relevant in-flight information via data link. Thereby, fewer voice radio communications are necessary between Airline/Flight Operations Centers and aircrafts which are currently used for keeping pilots up-to-date on relevant information. The system utilizes Air Traffic Management information exchange standards such as the Digital Notices to Airmen Event Specification and employs filtering to minimize the amount of data that has to be communicated via data link.
