UK AIP?

How is one supposed to access the UK AIP these days? The link provided on the NATS website to the eAIP is broken and the documents that can be accessed from the same page only include amendments.

If you follow the url back to the home page you get a message that it is offline for "essential maintenance, please check back shortly." There's a contact email & phone numbers as well.

If you click on the 'eAIPPackage' button that should open up the current latest version of the AIP. On the left hand side are the sub-menus where you can click through to the various sections.

Works for me, but I agree it is less than a professional presentation on the NATS landing page.

Have to agree, this website 'upgrade' with eAIP is in fact a major downgrade. I would expect that the most common thing that pilots want to look at is up-to-date charts (aerodrome, approach and instrument) and like Propwash, I couldn't find them to begin with. The charts are now MUCH slower and less intuitive to find.
