Welcome to FIXM
The Flight Information Exchange Model (FIXM) is an exchange model capturing Flight and Flow information that is globally standardised. The requirement for FIXM was identified by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Air Traffic Management Requirements and Performance Panel (ATMRPP) and endorsed at the 12th Air Navigation Conference as part of the Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU) and as described in Flight and Flow Information for a Collaborative Environment (FF-ICE).
FIXM is the equivalent, for the Flight domain, of AIXM (Aeronautical Information Exchange Model) and WXXM (Weather Information Exchange Model) both of which were developed in order to achieve global interoperability for, respectively, AIS and MET information exchange. FIXM is therefore part of a family of technology independent, harmonized and interoperable information exchange models designed to cover the information needs of Air Traffic Management.
The FF-ICE concept and the applicable ICAO provisions drive the common and international development of FIXM, and impose requirements on what FIXM will deliver. FIXM aims to provide full coverage for FF-ICE.
