Notice to Airmen submissions
Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) notifications alert pilots to any potential safety hazards along a flight route or in a specified location. They can also advise of changes to aeronautical facilities, services or procedures.
NOTAMs are sent to Airservices Australia. If you are an approved NOTAM originator, you should submit the notice yourself. Otherwise, you can ask us to raise a notice on your behalf.
When is a NOTAM required?
You'll need to submit a NOTAM if you're a remotely piloted aircraft operator's certificate holder and have either:
- an Instrument of approval with the condition that an active NOTAM must be raised
- an Instrument of approval to operate:
- within 5.5 km (3 nm) of a controlled aerodrome
- within the movement area of any aerodrome
- above 400 ft (120 m) above ground level.
- beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS).
How to raise a NOTAM?
If you are an approved NOTAM originator
- Use your National Aeronautical Information Processing System (NAIPS) User ID to access the NAIPS Internet Service (NIS) and confirm your NOTAM details are correct.
- If the activation time for your notice is more than 10 days in the future, you may request a return email or fax from the Australian NOTAM office.
- You may nominate one email address to automatically receive all NOTAMS issued for your aerodrome. Send your nominated email address to the NOTAM office at email@example.com.
You can also use NIS to view or print current NOTAMs issued for any Australian aerodrome or airspace, with a maximum validity of 10 days (240 hours).
Don't have a NIS login? You can register online through the Airservices Australia website.
If you would like us to raise a NOTAM on your behalf
- Complete the Airservices Australia NOTAM request form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Submissions must be made at least 48 hours before you intend to fly.
