About Georgia | History - Geography

Georgia, Georgian Sakartvelo, country of Transcaucasia located at the eastern end of the Black Sea on the southern flanks of the main crest of the Greater Caucasus Mountains. It is bounded on the north and northeast by Russia, on the east and southeast by Azerbaijan, on the south by Armenia and Georgia, and on the west by the Black Sea. Georgia includes three ethnic enclaves: Abkhazia, in the northwest (principal city Sokhumi); Ajaria, in the southwest (principal city Batumi); and South Ossetia, in the north (principal city Tskhinvali). The capital of Georgia is Tbilisi (Tiflis).

The roots of the Georgian people extend deep in history; their cultural heritage is equally ancient and rich. During the medieval period a powerful Georgian kingdom existed, reaching its height between the 10th and 13th centuries. After a long period of Turkish and Persian domination, Georgia was annexed by the Russian Empire in the 19th century. An independent Georgian state existed from 1918 to 1921, when it was incorporated into the Soviet Union. In 1936 Georgia became a constituent (union) republic and continued as such until the collapse of the Soviet Union. During the Soviet period the Georgian economy was modernized and diversified. One of the most independence-minded republics, Georgia declared sovereignty on November 19, 1989, and independence on April 9, 1991.

Time Of Submission

A flight plan shall be submitted before departure to an air traffic service reporting office, transmitted to the appropriate air traffic service unit, unless arrangements have been made for submission of repetitive flight plans. Unless otherwise prescribed by the appropriate ATS authority, a flight plan for a flight to be provided to air traffic control service or air traffic advisory service shall be submitted at least 180 minutes before departure, or, if submitted during flight, at a time which ensures its receipt by the appropriate air traffic service unit at least 10 minutes before the aircraft is estimated to reach:

For other VFR flights, significant changes to a flight plan shall be reported as soon as practicable to the appropriate air traffic services unit.

Note:Information submitted prior to departure regarding fuel endurance or total number of persons carried on board, if incorrect at time of departure, constitutes a significant change to the flight plan and as such must be reported.

Unless otherwise prescribed by the appropriate ATS authority, a report of arrival shall be made in person, or by radiotelephony at the earliest possible moment after landing, to the appropriate air traffic services unit at the arrival aerodrome, by any flight for which flight plan has been submitted covering the entire flight or the remaining portion of a flight to the destination aerodrome.

Note:A report of arrival is not necessary after landing at an aerodrome where ATS service is provided if is evident from the radio communication or a light signal that the landing has been observed.

When a flight plan has been submitted only in respect of a portion of a flight, other than the remaining portion of a flight to destination, it shall, when required, be closed by an appropriate report to the relevant air traffic service unit.

When no air traffic service unit exists at the arrival aerodrome, the arrival report, when required, ` shall be made as soon as practicable after landing and by the quickest means available to the nearest air traffic service unit. In case the arrival report cannot be expected to reach the appropriate ATS unit within 30 minutes from the estimated time of arrival, the time by which the arrival report is expected to be submitted shall be included in the flight plan.

When communication facilities at the arrival aerodrome are known to be inadequate and alternate arrangements for the handling of arrival reports on the ground are not available, the following action shall be taken: immediately prior to landing the aircraft shall, if practicable, transmit to the appropriate air traffic service unit, a message comparable to an arrival report, where such report is required.
