AFOD NOTAM


AFOD operates a central NOTAM facility for the USAREUR NOTAM System. AFOD NOTAM compiles and distributes NOTAM information on U.S. AAFs and AHPs and on activities conducted by aviation units.
The AFOD will also receive and file NOTAM information from national and international NOTAM systems. This information will be partially reissued in USAREUR NOTAM summaries (NOSUMs) and made available for NOTAM briefings. USAREUR NOSUMs are specifically tailored to the needs of Army aviation. These summaries will be designed to be used for self-briefings at airfields with e-mail accounts or online (NOSUMs are posted at https://www.notams.jcs.mil. Select 'AFOD Europe Notices' under 'Custom DINS Services' in the middle of the page).
Information on airports and facilities not covered by NOSUMs can be obtained by contacting AFOD NOTAM. On request AFOD NOTAM provides briefings according to the intended route of flight. In addition AFOD NOTAM provides information published in aeronautical information publications.

Service will be provided MON-FRI 0600-2200 lcl, SAT&SUN 0800-1600 lcl


NOTAM Briefing Requests 

Upon request AFOD NOTAM will provide an en-route briefing according to the route of flight provided by the pilot. An update for such a briefing can be provided if requested.
