FDC NOTAMs, transmitted by the National Flight Data Center (NFCD), are
regulatory in nature and given system-wide dissemination via Service A only once
but are kept on file at the FSS until published or canceled. Contents are
amendments to published instrument approach procedures (IAPS) and other
current aeronautical charts. They are also used to advertise temporary flight
restrictions caused by such situations as natural disasters or large scale public
events that may generate a congestion of air traffic over a site.
The DOD NOTAM Distribution System is a part of the National NOTAM System (NNS). In FLIP, locations
displaying the ( ) symbol receive FULL NOTAM coverage and transmit/report all (FLIP and facility)
NOTAMs to U.S. Military. Locations displaying the ( ) symbol receive PARTIAL NOTAM coverage, have
published approach procedures in the FLIP and only changes to those procedures are reported as
changes to the U.S. Military. Locations having no NOTAM coverage symbols displayed do not transmit/
report NOTAMs to the NNS and therefore are not available on the military NOTAM summaries. NOTAM
coverage is provided according to geographical areas using daily summaries. (Summaries are updated
The military NOTAM system covers all NOTAMs for military bases as well as FAA distant dissemination
(D) and Flight Data Center (FDC) category NOTAMs for selected civilian airports.
DOD recently introduced computer-based military NOTAMs. A trip to NAS Kingsville's base ops to view
the military NOTAMs is not a requirement if the local Intranet-compatible computer is working or the
Internet is available. By connecting to the Intranet at Kingsville (http://intranet) and selecting "Download
NOTAMs" from Quicklink, one is connected to the Military NOTAM System provided by the FAA Control
System Command. If direct access to the Internet is available, the same military NOTAMs are available
using the following address:
Type in up to 10 aerodrome identifiers beginning with "K" for U.S. and then print their current NOTAMs.
Figure 3 represents an actual list of NOTAMs obtained from the Internet. These are military NOTAMs
only; obtain civilian NOTAMs, as before, from the FAA's NOTICES TO AIRMEN booklet, Teletype reports
and contact with FSS. Computerizing civilian NOTAMs seems to be in development but is some years
NOTE: Any clearance issued by an ATC agency NOTAMed "Not Authorized" would not be valid for DOD
FLIP users. The NOTAM code is in the Flight Information Handbook (FIH).
Flying from one military base to another:
Check AP/1 and the military NOTAMs.
Flying to a civilian field:
Call the FSS serving the civilian field and obtain D, FDC and L NOTAMs OR if the field is covered by the
Military NOTAM System D and FDC, call base ops and then obtain the L NOTAMs by calling the civilian
