Central Briefing Office

A CBO (Central Briefing Office) system provides Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) from a centralized (possibly redundant) location: this service is provided to flight crew by collecting, disseminating and updating information from and to the whole country, wherever it is required.

Flight crews receive appropriate flight documentation, prepared in accordance to the Flight Plan (FPL). Such documentation also includes the collection of both NOTAMs and SNOWTAMs – presented as PIBs (Pre Flight Information Bulletins) – operating information, regarding operating information for the assigned flight route, as well as meteorological documentation, including weather bulletins and warnings, forecast charts, winds and temperatures at different altitudes.
