Telephone Information Briefing Service
The Telephone Information Briefing Service (TIBS) is a service prepared and disseminated by selected Automated Flight Service Stations. It provides continuous telephone recordings of meteorological and aeronautical information. Specifically, TIBS provides area and route briefings, as well as airspace procedures and special announcements, if applicable. It is designed to be a preliminary briefing tool and is not intended to replace a standard briefing from a flight service specialist. The TIBS service is available 24 hours a day and is updated when conditions change, but it can only be accessed by a TOUCH-TONE phone. The phone numbers for the TIBS service are listed in the Airport/Facility Directory (A/FD).
