An Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) is defined by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) as a publication "intended primarily to satisfy international requirements for the exchange of aeronautical information of a lasting character essential to air navigation. When practicable, the form of presentation is designed to facilitate their use in flight. AIP constitute the basic information source for permanent information and long duration temporary changes."
Essentially, an AIP is a manual containing local regulations and procedures, usually issued by the respective civil aviation department. AIPs normally have three parts - GEN (general), ENR (enroute) and AD (aerodromes). The latter also includes aeronautical charts for aerodromes.
