FOMS Menu 465 (Station/FIR NOTAMs Program)

Note: The following descriptions represent the typical access and privileges afforded to users designated as Dispatch Managers/Supervisors. Users with dispatcher privileges will have limited access to a subset of the screens presented.


This program is a view-only program which allows users to view NOTAMs that come in to the system electronically and to generate Hardcopy reports as necessary. Select the function you wish from the command line by entering the appropriate initial letter.

The modes available are:

  • Video
  • Screen
  • Hardcopy
  • Quit

Video Mode

Enter the station or FIR ICAO identification code, Type, and Number of the NOTAM you wish to view. If you are not sure of the number, enter any number; if the program cannot find such a NOTAM, it will display the next available record. From that point you may use the up and down arrows to view successive NOTAMs in the file. Note that the program will always display the first page of each NOTAM, i.e., using the down arrow will not bring up page 2 of a NOTAM, nor will the Up arrow shift you to the last page of the previous NOTAM. If you wish to see other pages, use the <Ctrl>-F or <Ctrl>-B functions as the case requires. Pressing <Enter> will return you to a blank screen so that you can look for another NOTAM. Entering <Q> will exit you from Video mode to the command line.

ICAO or FIR: Enter the ICAO identifier for the airport or FIR for which you wish to view a NOTAM. If there is no ambiguity in the code (i.e. if the same code does not apply to both an airport and an FIR), then the program will automatically fill in the appropriate designation (I or F) in the next field. Where ambiguity exists, you will have to enter the desired designation manually.

Type {I/D}: Enter whether the airport is <I> international or <D> domestic.

NOTAM Number: Enter the NOTAM identification number. If no NOTAM is on file with that number then you will receive a message NO NOTAMS ON FILE - Press <ENTER>.

Operational {Y/N}: This is a display only field which displays whether or not the NOTAM is currently operational.

Valid From/To: These are display only fields that show the range of dates and times for which the NOTAM is valid.

Recorded: This is a display only field which will indicate the system date on which the NOTAM was first received.

Screen Mode

Calling up the Screen mode will bring up the report range selection screen. Enter the Type of NOTAM you wish reported: <I> for airport ICAO code or <F> for FIR, then enter the range of stations you wish to see.

You may next select whether you want a report of Operational NOTAMs. Non-Operational NOTAMs or all NOTAMs. The default value is all NOTAMs.

Finally enter the Minimum Age and Maximum Age of NOTAMs you wish reported. Your report will contain only those NOTAMs which have been on the system for a length of time corresponding to the limits you specified.

When the report is brought to the screen, you can page through it by pressing <Enter>, or return to the command line by entering <Q>. Pressing <Enter> when the final page of a report is on screen will also return you to the command line.

Hardcopy Mode

This mode functions like the Screen mode, except that the report is directed to the system printer.

Quit Mode

To exit this program, enter <Q> from the command line. You will be asked to enter the menu number of the next program. If you are not sure, pressing <Enter> will return you to the last used menu screen.
