News and updates

30 August 2018

Airservices is introducing a new process for the proactive management of planned, permanent and temporary obstacles in the vicinity of Aerodromes. The process will effectively eliminate the time lag between issuance of an obstacle NOTAM impacting published Instrument Flight Procedure at an Aerodrome, and the impact NOTAM – these will happen at the same time.

There is a modified NOTAM form to assist in capturing obstacle impacts, and an information package that outlines Aerodrome Reporting Officer requirements for you to download.

For more information contact the NOTAM Office.

4 July 2018

Commencing from the 10 July 2018, specific pre-flight briefings will default to a 6 hour validity instead of 24 hours due to the NIS version 1.4.0 release. Please read Enhancements to NIS Web User Interface 1.4.0 for more information or contact the NOTAM office.
