VFR Database

The NATS AIS team manage changes to aeronautical features on the UK VFR charts from numerous data sources, many of which operate within a regulated framework and many of which do not. For aeronautical features which do not fall under a regulatory framework and are not published in the UK AIP we cannot guarantee accuracy and are challenged to maintain currency.

AIS endeavour to keep an accurate and current dataset of these features, relying heavily on notifications from the VFR flying community. However to date the dataset has been stewarded in-house with copies of the dataset not being publicly available.

For all VFR stakeholders to have the best quality data, it is clear to AIS that all VFR stakeholders should be engaged. Therefore on this page you will find a copy of our current dataset of these features and with your help we aim to improve the accuracy and currency.

The dataset is available to download as a CSV file and can be visualised in Google Earth (KMZ).

If you are aware of any anomalies in the dataset then please complete the UK Unlicensed & Uncertificated Aeronautical Sites sheet below (xls) and email it to  vfrcharts@nats.co.uk

Note to developers: We will endeavour to maintain the same file formats on this page, however some may change with improvements to the dataset.
