What is ATIS?

ATIS stands for Automated Terminal Information Service. It’s a frequency where a computer voice (in repeat) gives pilots information about the airport and weather conditions around the airport. It’s wise to listen to the ATIS prior to departure and arrival to get familiar with the current conditions at the airport. The ATIS comes with an identification letter, each and every time something changes in the ATIS the identification letter will change too. This makes sure that pilots have the latest information, and if not, they will have to listen to the ATIS again. More in the video above!
