The objective of the Aeronautical Information Service of the State of Qatar is to ensure the flow of aeronautical data and aeronautical information necessary for global air traffic management (ATM) system safety, regularity, economy and efficiency in an environmentally sustainable manner.

The Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) is responsible for the collection and dissemination of aeronautical information for the State of Qatar.

Aeronautical information for the State of Qatar and its territorial boundaries is provided in the Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) of Qatar and published as Integrated Aeronautical Information Package (IAIP).

  • AIP is the basic aeronautical information document which contains permanent information essential to air navigation within the Doha Terminal Control Area (TMA). It is made up of three parts, namely, General (GEN), En-route (ENR) and Aerodromes (AD).

  • AIP Supplement (AIP SUP) publishes temporary changes of long duration (three months and longer) and information of short duration which contains extensive text and / or graphics, supplementing the permanent information contained in AIP.

  • Aeronautical Information Circular (AIC) contains explanatory or advisory information concerning technical, legislative or administrative matters and on the long-term forecast of major change in legislation, regulations, procedures or facilities liable to affect flight safety.

Valid NOTAMs consists of all current NOTAMs relevant for the State of Qatar (within DOHA TMA) and can be obtained by using the link below.

The Program in the State of Qatar in Aeronautical Navigation services are required to publish information in the form of AIP (Aeronautical Information Publication) as contained in ICAO DOC 8126 (Aeronautical Information Services Manual), One of the components associated with the navigation service is VFR-AC (Visual Flight Rules - Aeronautical Chart) with reference to the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Doc. 8697 (Aeronautical Chart Manual).
Along with that, the State of Qatar, represented by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority), entrusted Indoavis to participate in generating the chart AC-ICAO Scale 1: 500,000, which has been Indoavis for almost 3 (three) consecutive months, and has been published on the Qatar e -AIP with address "https://www.aim.gov.qa/"

The results show displayed below



Aeronautical Chart-ICAO cover land areas at a standard size and scale (1:500,000) for  navigation by moderate speed aircraft and aircraft operating at high altitudes. The topographical information includes city tints, principal roads, railroads, distinctive landmarks, drainage patterns and relief. The aeronautical information includes visual and radio aids to navigation, airports, airways, restricted areas, obstructions and other pertinent data. These charts are revised and updated annually.

This chart shall provide information to satisfy the requirements of visual air  navigation for low speed, short- or medium-range operations at low and intermediate altitudes.


Note 1. This chart may be used:
o to serve as a basic aeronautical chart
o to provide a suitable medium for basic pilot and navigation training
o to supplement highly specialized charts which do not provide essential
o in pre-flight planning.

Note 2; It is intended that these charts be provided for land areas where charts of
this scale are required for civil air operations employing visual air navigation  independently or in support of other forms of air navigation.
Note 3; where States produce charts of this series covering their national territories,  the entire area being portrayed is usually treated on a regional basis.

Recommendation; The Aeronautical Chart ICAO 1:500 000 should be made  available in the manner prescribed in 1.3.2 for all areas delineated in Appendix 5.

The authority responsible for the production of aeronautical charts is the Assistant Director General of Civil Aviation (Air Traffic Management), acting under the authority of the Director- General of Civil Aviation.

Aeronautical charts have been prepared in accordance with the standards and recommended practices of Annex 4 - Aerodrome Charts, and the guidance material in the ICAO Aeronautical Charts Manual (Doc 8697 - AN/889/2).

Aeronautical information is made available via the Integrated Aeronautical Information Package (IAIP) that includes the State Qatar Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP), Circulars (AIC), AIP Supplements and NOTAM, all compiled from numerous and often unique sources of data. Indoanis Nusantara focuses on data originators, and the processes that are necessary to ensure consistency and quality levels throughout the aeronautical data management chain.

  • AIP (Aeronautical Information Publication) Permanent information which is only issued by each member State of ICAO

  • AIP AMDT (Amendment) Permanent changes to the information in the AIP. 

  • AIP SUPP (Supplement) Temporary changes to the information in the AIP are published through a special sheet sheet

  • NOTAM (Notice to Airman) A notice distributed by Telecom which contains information about the existence, condition or change in certain Aeronotic facilities, services, procedure or danger, you need to know early on by personnel associated with flight safety.

  • GISQATAR.org.qa GIS Center of the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning, has identified the Emiri Decision No. (36) for the year 2009 sections and terms of reference of the center so that consists of five sections, a section topographic survey, the Department of Services maps and archiving, Department of Planning and Projects, Department of ecosystem services, and the terms of reference of the center are :
    The provision of basic geographical maps of the state and related services in coordination with the competent authorities in the country

  • SRTM 30M (The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission) is an international research effort that obtained digital elevation models on a near-global scale from 56 S to 60 N,[2] to generate the most complete high-resolution digital topographic database of Earth prior to the release of the ASTER GDEM in 2009. SRTM consisted of a specially modified radar system that flew on board the Space Shuttle Endeavour during the 11-day STS-99 mission in February 2000, based on the older Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C/X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SIR-C/X-SAR), previously used on the Shuttle in 1994.
