FAA issues changes to notams

The FAA recently released Order 7930.2S, modification 2, “Notice to air missions (NOTAM)”, which came into effect on 2 December. Yes, you read that correctly: this change also includes a change to the FAA’s “Notam acronym from Notice to Airmen to the more applicable term Notice to Air Missions”.

The name change is in accordance with the Federal Program for the Advancement of Women, which suggests that the term notice to air missions is “including all airmen and missions”. The name change also concerns the flight of small drones and unmanned free balloons.

Other revisions include:

  • Changes that harmonize FAA terminology with that of the International Civil Aviation Organization.
  • Additional detail to describe the operation of the runway marker lights to replace the single term “unusable”.
  • Deletion of the “good” braking action report as a criterion notably.
  • Same treatment of ASOS and AWOS automated weather stations in notams.
  • Name change of Las Vegas McCarran International Airport to Harry Reid International Airport.
