To support improved interoperability during large-scale disaster operations, CAPR 70-1 requires that all CAP corporate aircraft have a standardized, complete, and up-to-date Aircraft Information File (AIF).  NHQ guidance regarding AIF standardization is provided in AIF LAYOUT INSTRUCTIONS (updated) and is supported by the documents provided below.   No local changes or substitution to the forms or format are authorized.
