Annex 4 –Aeronautical Charts
Doc 8697 –Aeronautical Chart Manual
Doc 8168 –Procedures for Air Navigation Services - Aircraft Operations (PANS-OPS)

Differences to these provisions are detailed in subsection GEN 1.7.

2 Maintenance of Charts

2.1 The aeronautical charts included in the AIP are kept up to date by amendments to the AIP.
2.2 Corrections to aeronautical charts not contained in the AIP are promulgated by AIP Amendments and are listed under para. 8 of this subsection.
2.3 Information concerning the planning for or issuance of new maps and charts is notified by Aeronautical Information Circular.
2.4 If incorrect information detected on published charts is of operational significance, it is corrected by NOTAM.

  9. Instrument Approach Chart (IAC) – ICAO (for each runway and procedure type);
  10. Visual Approach Chart (VAC) – ICAO;
  11. Landing Chart (LDG).
The charts currently available are listed under para 5 of this subsection.
4.2 General Description of Each Series
  1. Aeronautical Chart (ANC) – ICAO 1:500 000.

    Chart is constructed on Lambert conformal conical projection. The aeronautical data shown are consistent with the use of the chart for low speed visual air navigation. It includes aerodromes, significant obstacles, elements of the ATS system, prohibited, restricted and danger areas, and radio navigation aids.

    The chart provides information to satisfy visual air navigation and is also used as a pre-flight planning chart.

  2. Aerodrome/Heliport Chart (ADC) – ICAO.
    Chart contains detailed aerodrome/heliport data to provide flight crews with information that will facilitate the ground movement of aircraft:
    • from the aircraft stand to the runway; and
    • from the runway to the aircraft stand;
       

      and helicopter movement:

    • from the helicopter stand to the touchdown and lift-off area and to the final approach and take-off area;
    • from the final approach and take-off area to the touchdown and lift-off area and to the helicopter stand;
    • along helicopter ground and air taxiways; and
    • along air transit routes.
       

      It also provides essential operational information at the aerodrome/heliport.

  3. Aircraft Parking/Docking Chart (APDC) – ICAO.

    Chart is produced for those aerodromes where, due to the complexity of the terminal facilities, the information to facilitate the ground movement of aircraft between the taxiways and the aircraft stands and the parking/docking of aircraft cannot be shown with sufficient clarity on the Aerodrome/Heliport Chart - ICAO or on the Aerodrome Ground Movement Chart - ICAO.

  4. Aerodrome Obstacle Chart (AOC) – ICAO - Type A (operating limitations).

    Chart contains detailed information on obstacles in the take-off flight path areas of aerodromes. It is shown in plan and profile view. This obstacle information, in combination with an Obstacle Chart - ICAO - Type C, provides the data necessary to enable an operator to comply with the operating limitations of ICAO Annex 6, Parts I and II, Chapter 5.

  5. ATC Surveillance Minimum Altitude Chart (ATS-SMAC) – ICAO.

    This chart provides information that will enable flight crews to monitor and cross-check the altitudes assigned by a controller using an ATS surveillance system.

  6. En-route Chart (ENRC) – ICAO.

    Chart is produced for the entire Tallinn FIR. The aeronautical data include all international aerodromes, prohibited, restricted and danger areas and the air traffic services system in detail.

    The chart provides the flight crew with information that will facilitate navigation along ATS routes in compliance with air traffic services procedures.

  7. Standard Departure Chart – Instrument (SID) - ICAO.

    This chart is produced whenever a standard departure route - instrument has been established and cannot be shown with sufficient clarity on the Area Chart - ICAO.

    The aeronautical data shown include the aerodrome of departure, aerodrome(s) which affect the designated standard departure route - instrument, prohibited, restricted and danger areas and the air traffic services system.

    Chart provides the flight crew with information that will enable them to comply with the designated standard departure route - instrument from the take-off phase to the en-route phase.

  8. Standard Arrival Chart – Instrument (STAR) - ICAO.

    Chart is produced whenever a standard arrival route - instrument has been established and cannot be shown with sufficient clarity on the Area Chart - ICAO.

    The aeronautical data shown include the aerodrome of landing, aerodrome(s) which affect the designated standard arrival route - instrument, prohibited, restricted and danger areas and the air traffic services system.

    Chart provides the flight crew with information that will enable them to comply with the designated standard arrival route - instrument from the en-route phase to the approach phase.

  9. Instrument Approach Chart (IAC) – ICAO.

    This chart is produced for all aerodromes used by civil aviation where instrument approach procedures have been established. A separate Instrument Approach Chart - ICAO has been provided for each approach procedure.

    The aeronautical data shown include information on aerodromes, prohibited, restricted and danger areas, radio communication facilities and navigation aids, minimum sector altitude, procedure track portrayed in plan and profile view, aerodrome operating minima, etc.

    Chart provides the flight crew with information that will enable them to perform an approved instrument approach procedure to the runway of intended landing including the missed approach procedure and where applicable, associated holding patterns.

  10. Visual Approach Chart (VAC) – ICAO.

    This chart is produced for aerodromes used by civil aviation.

    The purpose of the Visual Approach Charts is to provide the pilot with a graphic presentation of the approach procedures to an aerodrome by visual reference.

    The aeronautical data shown include information on aerodromes, obstacles, designated airspace, visual approach information, radio navigation aids and communication facilities, as appropriate.

  11. Landing Chart (LDG).
    Chart provides an illustration of the aerodrome and its environs to facilitate the approach to the runway of intended landing and information necessary for landing and to facilitate rapid clearance of the runway after landing.
