NetBriefing - Safer Flights for General Aviation

HungaroControl’s online application helps pilots prepare HungaroControl Hungarian Air Navigation Service’s new, free-of-charge, webbased service offers general aviation pilots faster and simpler preparation for safe flights. The NetBriefing system helps pilots submit flight plans from wherever they may be for flights to HungaroControl’s Flight Information Centre. The website collects the most important, regularly updated air navigation and meteorological information.

"Easy Access Rules for Standardised European Rules of the Air (SERA)

SERA.2010 Responsibilities
(b) Pre-flight action
Before beginning a flight, the pilot-in-command of an aircraft shall become familiar with all available information appropriate to the intended operation.
Pre-flight action for flights away from the vicinity of an aerodrome, and for all IFR flights, shall include a careful study of available current weather reports and forecasts, taking into consideration fuel requirements and an alternative course of action if the flight cannot be completed as planned.

Through the use of this system, flight safety and traffic flow control in the uncontrolled airspace can be improved, airspace infringements can be avoided and in the event of an accident the work of search and rescue services will become easier.

As the submission of flight plans is not obligatory for VFR (visual flight rules) flights in the uncontrolled airspace, currently only 60-70 percent of pilots make use of this opportunity. However, submitting flight plans facilitate communication between pilots and the staff of HungaroControl’s Flight Information Centre, and thus flight safety can be improved.

With the help of the NetBriefing system, pilots can prepare and submit their flight plans to the air navigation service provider. The system records previously submitted flight plans, which are retrievable and re-usable. Moreover, the regularly updated air traffic and meteorological information collected on the website provides further help. This way the information flow between pilots and air traffic control becomes smoother, which in turn improves traffic flow control in Hungary’s uncontrolled airspace. Using this system facilitates the tracking down of aircraft in a state of emergency as well.

Following free registration, NetBriefing is easy to access from any device equipped with an Internet browser as Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge or Firefox.

The NetBriefing system was developed by the engineers of company R-SYS on commission from HungaroControl in line with international trends and with the requirements specified in the Local Single Sky Implementation Programme (LSSIP) applicable in the member states of EUROCONTROL. The service is run by the technical staff of HungaroControl’s flight information centre.

Date and Time

17.03.2023 PilotNet system

The development of the PilotNet system aimed to utilize mobile internet networks during flight while taking into account the needs of the VFR traffic flying within the Hungarian FIR. We wanted to create a system that, with a live internet connection, is capable of:
In addition to the above, the system can also provide the normal functions of an offline navigation system, such as route planning, NAVLOG creation, weight and balance calculations, in-flight navigation with the "Direct To" function, and so on. The use of the system is free, only installation of an application and registration are required.

"SERA.4020 Closing a flight plan
Arrival reports made by aircraft shall contain the following elements of information:
(1) aircraft identification;
(2) departure aerodrome or operating site;
(3) destination aerodrome or operating site (only in the case of a diversionary landing);
(4) arrival aerodrome or operating site;
(5) time of arrival.

Whenever an arrival report is required, failure to comply with the provisions of SERA.4020 may cause serious disruption in the air traffic services and incur great expenses in carrying out unnecessary search and rescue operations."
