Aeronautical Information

Aeronautical Information Publications, NOTAMs

To successfully complete a VFR flight current detailed airport and aviation information must be collected for the airspace, the departure and destination airports you will use.

Eurocontrol published a document which explains how to decode NOTAMs. For a safe flight every pilot must be able to read and interpret the information on them.

Decoding NOTAMs

Eurocontrol Guidance Notes

Excerpt from the document:

Wherever they are issued, NOTAMs always follow the same format. They are always published in English, because this is the international language of aviation. NOTAMs comprise up to eight items, which are identified by letters: Q, A, B, C, D, E, F & G.

Individual items are often omitted if unnecessary or inappropriate. Although NOTAMs are in code, the vital information is often in plain language, or obvious from the text, as the examples indicate.
