I am aware that Eurocontrol has an online repository for charts related to Europe's Instrument Flight Procedures. However, I am trying to find these data coded in a digital format such as ARINC 424 or something similar, especially for Germany. The ideal situation would be something similar to FAA's Coded Instrument Flight Procedures.

Could someone point me in the right direction? I also tried to check Jeppesen's website (link) but I keep receiving a "Page not found" error.


Eurocontrol does offer the whole thing as well – albeit not for free as the FAA does. Check out https://www.eurocontrol.int/service/european-ais-database for more information.

  • $\begingroup$ thanks for your input, however I couldn't find any data coded in a digital format suitable for processing, such as ARINC 424. They offer at most charts which are, essentially, images. Could you provide an example of coded instrument flight procedures which can be retrieved from ais database (they do not have to be free)? $\endgroup$ – Vector Zita Sep 9 at 20:40

    $\begingroup$ According to the page I linked in my answer: "Data from ECAC States and beyond includes [… the] full set of aeronautical information data […] including procedures […]." If you read through you come to eurocontrol.int/database/static-data-operations where it says under the heading "For data users": "[…] the static data can be downloaded in […] ARINC424 format". So you can get the complete instrument flight procedures digitally coded from them. Their webpage isn't very user-friendly I must admit. $\endgroup$ – Chris Sep 9 at 21:29
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you Chris, that was very helpful. Although it does not guarantee that the aforementioned data are anywhere near complete, it is definitely worth checking out. $\endgroup$ – Vector Zita Sep 9 at 21:53
