The Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM) is designed to enable the management and distribution of Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) data in digital format.

AIXM 5 takes advantages of established information engineering standards and supports current and future aeronautical information system requirements. The major tenets are:

  • An exhaustive temporality model, including support for the temporary information contained in NOTAM
  • Alignment with ISO standards for geospatial information, including the use of the Geography Markup Language (GML)
  • Support for the latest ICAO and user requirements for aeronautical data including obstacles, terminal procedures and airport mapping databases
  • Modularity and extensibility
