Notices to Airmen NTAP
The NOTAMS included in the Notices to Airmen NTAP publication are NOT given during pilot briefings unless specifically requested by the pilot. An electronic version of this publication is on the internet at http://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/publications/notices
NATIONAL AIRSPACE SYSTEM CHANGES The main references for changes to the National Airspace System (NAS) are the Aeronautical Charts and the Chart Supplements. Most changes to the NAS meeting NOTAM criteria are known sufficiently in advance to be carried in these publications. When this cannot be done, changes are carried in the Notices to Airmen publication (NTAP) and/or the Service A telecommunications system as a NOTAM D item.
NATIONAL FLIGHT DATA CENTER AIRWAY NOTAMS Flight Data Center (FDC) NOTAMs reflecting airway changes are carried as Center Area NOTAMs (CAN) on the NOTAM(D) circuit. CANs are NOTAMs issued on airway changes that fall within an ARTCC’s airspace. CANs are in FDC format and issued by the U.S. NOTAM Office.
NOTAMS IN THE NOTICES TO AIRMEN PUBLICATION NOTAM D information printed in this publication is NOT included on the Service A circuit. FDC NOTAMs reflect changes to Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs), flight restrictions, and aeronautical chart revisions. The date and number of the last FDC NOTAM included in this issue is indicated on the Table of Contents page. This ensures that FDC NOTAMs issued after the NTAP cutoff date can be identified.
Webmaster conclusion: Though there are “5 types of Notams” -as explained on this site- there are “2 categories” that Notams can be classified by. In a “Standard Briefing,” the briefer will issue “Unpublished Notams.” The Notams that are contained in the “NTAP” are “Published Notams.” The data useful for specific flight planning contained in this publication if accessed, will facilitate a more complete information package.
The NTAP also is designed to list large events whose circumstances are known well in advance. Events like, “Oshkosh” or the “Indianapolis 500,” etc. have large amounts of associated NOTAM data. That data is deemed to be more appropriately listed in the NTAP. However, the NTAP has small listings as well. ROUTE Notams are compact in size! A revised NTAP is issued every 28 days. – Webmaster
