Outage Will Fix Glitches Uncovered Last Month When System
ANN REALTIME REPORTING 06.22.08 1600 EDT: The
FAA issued a notice this weekend of a scheduled system outage for
the US Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) system on Monday, June 23.
According to the notice the system covering NOTAMs in the United
States, Iraq, and Afghanistan will be down from 0400 UTC to 1000
UTC (0000 EDT to 0600 EDT). During that time all systems displaying
information for those areas will not be updated.
During the system outage, urgent civilian and military safety of
flight information received by the US NOTAM Office will be
accessible via PilotWeb and DINS using the link provided
All Class D NOTAMs for the continental United States, Hawaii and
Puerto Rico will be available at this URL
during the system outage.
The system maintenance is to fix the glitches that led to the
massive system wide NOTAM outage in May. As ANN reported, the outage persisted for
several days before recovering fully.
Hopefully this time everything will go smoothly -- or at least
better than Microsoft's Vista rollout...
