ADS-B Service Alerts are published to notify owners/operators of ADS-B outages and service limitations.

Aviation Database Alerts are published to advise owners/operators of significant issues with aviation database content that may affect flight operations or safety. Alerts of this type are categorized by the database type they affect, such as FliteCharts, Navigation, Obstacles, SafeTaxi, and Terrain.
