Airspace Project

Welcome to the Airspace Project

Airspace ProjectAirspace Project
The purpose of this project is to produce tools for the creation of GPS compatible airspace files from NZ CAA airspace documentation. The NZ CAA produces printed airspace maps which may be used for flight planning and in-flight. They also publish PDF documents that contain a textural description of the airspace boundaries. These documents are of no practical use to pilots because they cannot be read by any device or software.

 

It is possible to create airspace on your GPS by manually entering routes. The effort required to do this is huge as is the potential for error. Maintaining any more than a handful of airspaces is impractical. This project is creating software tools that are capable of reading the published airspace definitions and turning them into airspace files that can be loaded into a map capable GPS or flight instrument for use in-flight.

 

 

The Airspace Project now has a new dedicated website where you can browse the airspace online, filter out items that you don't need, and download in the format you require.

You can find it at nzairspace.appspot.com
