NOTAMs carry information of an immediate or transitory nature that has not yet made it into an aeronautical chart. This includes airspace and controlling regulations; you are now bound to comply with the new rules, without any textual or graphical description yet appearing in a printed chart or other document. It’s critical that pilots know where to obtain this time-sensitive information and check it before every flight.
In this presentation, SCFC Flight Instructor Brian Eliot will overview and describe recent changes to the NOTAM system. He’ll discuss various official sources for pilots to find current regulatory and advisory changes to the airspace system and the navigational aids available to pilots.
It’s important for pilots to understand: failure to know about a NOTAM does not mean that you can’t have your certificate revoked for busting one. Ignorance is no protection. All pilots should attend this very special discussion.
