NOTAMs Due For Overhaul,
The way Notices to Airmen are written is
confusing to pilots, and it can be difficult to extract important
safety-of-flight information from the mass of data, researchers at the
University of Central Florida, in Orlando, have found (winning them our
thanks ... but possibly also our, "Gee, you think so?" award). "This is
critical information, yet the way it's transmitted is vintage 1960s or
1970s at best," said Florian Jentsch, research director, who is also a
CFI. "As a result, it's an extremely confusing system, and it's very
difficult to find what you need." The notices should be written in
"plain and simple" language instead of abbreviations that can confuse
even experienced pilots, the researchers found. They also said the
notices should be better organized so pilots can sort the data on their
own and easily find important information pertaining to their flights.
Critical characteristics of NOTAMs that the researchers panned are the
use of all-capital letters and abbreviations, and the lack of a system
that allows pilots an efficient way find the notices by time, place or
altitude to figure out which ones are relevant. Jentsch and his research
team gave written surveys to 77 pilots and dispatchers, most of whom
indicated they want the notices to be written in "easy-to-read, plain
language." Changes would make flying safer and more efficient and would
also help pilots stay out of TFRs, Jentsch said. The format of NOTAMs
today is basically the same as when the messages were sent by Teletype
machines 30 years ago.
