Please read the disclaimer first
AeroNOTAM is not for navigational and/or operational use.
No subscription – limited mode
You can still use AeroNOTAM in a limited way if you have none or an expired subscription. AeroNOTAM allows you to show NOTAMs for one airport (including its FIR) only. The automatic generated route “Free Location” contains one editable airport. The “Radius Search” switch is not changable. Already defined user routes are grayed out and is not selectable until subscription is renewed. In limited mode the top bar is colored in orange.
In the “Routes” view, select, add, change or delete a route. To manually refresh all defined routes, swipe down the routes list and NOTAMs will be loaded. However, AeroNOTAM supports also Apple’s background fetching, which (when enabled) loads new NOTAMs approximately every hour (you might want to disable this in the device settings when using roaming).
|If you start AeroNOTAM for the first time, two demo routes will be generated automatically (which you can of course remove).
The number of NOTAMs (in parentheses the number of new NOTAMs) is displayed after the route name. A horizontal green bar indicates routes, if the “Notify when updated” option is switched on (notifications about new or changed NOTAMs). This notification informs you that any new NOTAMs have been loaded for this particular route.
Choose to go to the settings.
Route types and definitions
To add a new route, fill in the route data in one of the three route types (“Flightpath”, “Location” or “Location List”).
- Flightpath contains “From Airport”, “To Airport” and (optional) alternate airports. NOTAMs from en-route airports in buffer distance and FIRs are also included.
- Location defines a single airport and nearby airports within the selected radius. FIRs are also included.
- Location List defines arbitary list of airports.
NOTAM view labels
|The blue indicator represents the scope of a NOTAM.|
| There are the following letters (or combinations):
A = Aerodrome
E = En-Route
W = Warning
K = Checklist
|The yellow indicator represents warnings|
Depending on “Filter” and “Map Settings” airports and NOTAMs of the selected route will be shown on the map. Find the meaning of the “NOTAM map symbols” and the “Airport map symbols” below. If available, the operational radius of a NOTAM is displayed as circle. Tap the map symbol for more information.
|Map Settings||The “Map Settings” determine the visual representation on the Map only.|

Airport alternate containing NOTAM (3)
other Airport, not part of the defined route (adhoc NOTAM download possible)
A6 – clustered other airport (4). Zoom in will uncluster
(3) Airports show number of NOTAMs (in a radius of 0,5 NM)
(4) Airport cluster shows number of clustered airports
In the settings choose “Airport Database Update” to manually check for updates and update the AeroNOTAM Database. The app checks periodically whether data updates are available.
