Help:ICAO Search and Solution Centre
This is the Help Page for the ICAO Search and Solution Centre.
The ICAO Search and Solution Centre is currently under development and is available as a prototype. The ICAO Search and Solution Centre is one of the SKYbrary subsites (a.k.a. SKYbrary Solutions).
ICAO search delivers two types of results:
- Exact Matches: exact wording or phrase entered
- AND Matches: all words entered
- ICAO search considers every word you enter. Documents are rarely about "the", "a", "an", etcetera, hence it is advised to omit these.
- Web search engines support the usage of operators like: AND, OR, NOT, "", - and +. ICAO search does not support these.
- ICAO search is not sensitive to wordcasing
- Think how the procedure or guideline you are looking for will be written. The search engine is not a human, it is a program that matches the words you give to paragraphs in documents. Use the words that are most likely to appear in the documents.
Why does it retrieve paragraphs?
Since ICAO documentation cannot be provided to the SKYbrary users as single documents, the prototype is based on segmented, tree-like versions of the ICAO documents, so that only segments (paragraphs) of an ICAO document are available for display at any given time during interaction with the ICAO Search and Solution Centre.
The prototype enables searching through the following ICAO documentation:
- Annex 1 - Personnel Licensing
- Annex 2 - Rules Of The Air
- Annex 3 - Meteorological Service for International Air Navigation
- Annex 6, Part 1 - Operation of Aircraft
- Annex 6, Part 2 - Operation of Aircraft
- Annex 6, Part 3 - Operation of Aircraft
- Annex 8 - Airworthiness of Aircraft
- Annex 10, Volume II - Aeronautical Telecommunications
- Annex 10, Volume III - Aeronautical Telecommunications
- Annex 10, Volume IV - Aeronautical Telecommunications
- Annex 10, Volume V - Aeronautical Telecommunications
- Annex 11 - Air Traffic Services
- Annex 12 - Search and Rescue
- Annex 13 - Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation
- Annex 15 - Aeronautical Information Services
- Annex 17 - Security
- Annex 18 - The Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air
- Document 4444 - Air Traffic Management
