The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

In 2006 ASAP was contracted by the company Avitech to provide the following services to them for onward delivery to the Saudi Arabian GACA.

  • Loading and validation of KSA provided Microstation resource files into the Avitech aeronautical charting software eMAP.wiz@rd
  • Collection, storage, and validation of all KSA Aeronautical Static Data published in the Saudi Arabian AIP that is required for chart production
  • Compilation, generation, and validation of all ICAO and non-ICAO Charts according the following table
  • Presentation of valid static data and compiled charts to GACA in Jeddah, KSA

The following data was entered by ASAP into the Avitech static data base (SDO) ready for aeronautical chart creation.

  • All navigational aids
  • All reporting points
  • All prohibited, restricted and danger areas in the Saudi Arabian AIP
  • All routes detailed in the en-route section of the Saudi Arabian AIP
  • All Airspace including ATZ, CTA, FIR, TMA
  • For each aerodrome in the Saudi Arabian AIP the following data was entered:

-ARP coordinates

-Elevation/reference temperature

-MAG VAR/Annual change

-Transition altitude

-Operational hours

-Apron stand coordinates

-Runway information

-True & magnetic bearing

-Dimensions

-Strength (PCN) and surface type

-Threshold Coordinates

-Threshold Elevation

-Declared Distances

-Approach and Runway lighting

-Vasis and/or Papis

-Fuel and Oil available

-Administration CAA or military

-Direction and distance to city

-Extra for Jeddah: ATC Units, services available and frequencies

Following is a list of the aeronautical charts that were created by ASAP for this project.
