When changes occur so rapidly that time does not permit issuance on a chart or in an appropriate publication, they are publicized as NOTAMs. Originators of airmen information are expected to inform the National Flight Data Center (NFDC) in sufficient time before the effective dates of changes to permit publishing of aeronautical data on the various charts or in the appropriate publications. NOTAMs are classified into five groups in accordance with instructions in this order. The groups are:

NOTAMs are classified into four groups in accordance with instructions in this order. The groups are:

a. NOTAM D. Information that meets the criteria of this order and requires wide dissemination via telecommunication and pertains to en route navigational aids, civil public­use airports listed in the AFD, facilities, services, and procedures.

 

a. NOTAM D. Information that meets the criteria of this order and requires wide dissemination via telecommunication and pertains to en route navigational aids, civil public­use airports listed in the AFD, facilities, services, and procedures. Information that may be beneficial to aircraft operations and is not identified in Appendix 1 of this order. These NOTAMs are identified with “(O)” as the first part of NOTAM text.

b. FDC NOTAM. Flight information that is regulatory in nature including, but not limited to, changes to IFR charts, procedures, and airspace usage.

c. NOTAM L. Information that meets certain criteria of this order and requires local dissemination.

Subsequent to USNS distribution of a (U) NOTAM, Flight Service will inform airport management of the action taken as soon as practical. Any such NOTAM will be prefaced with “(U)” as the keyword and followed by the appropriate keyword contraction, as set forth in this Policy, following the Location Identifier.

d. Restrictions to NAVAIDs are normally published by segment; e.g., 020-055 degree radials. Do not carry more than one NOTAM describing the restrictions of a NAVAID. To correct a given segment, issue a completely new NOTAM for that segment. Add, “PLUS SEE (publication)” when other restrictions to the NAVAID are published. The absence of this statement from the NOTAM indicates that all other restrictions have been canceled.
