AFIS (Aerodrome Flight Information Service) is a flight information service, which is provided at Eggenfelden Airport.
AFIS is performed by a unit located at the aerodrome and identified as an “AFIS unit”. An AFIS unit supplies flight information and alert services to aerodrome traffic. The AFIS unit is not a flight control unit. Except in cases where ATC clearance is granted, AFIS officers (AFISO) may only transmit information and warnings to pilots. The pilots are therefore fully responsible for ensuring that the correct distance from other traffic participants is maintained in accordance with air traffic regulations.
The scope of services rendered by the flight information service depends on the workload, the technical equipment available at the workplace and their capabilities. There is therefore no guarantee of support from the flight information service
