JO 7930.2P
Effective Date:
April 3, 2014
 
     
Subject:  Notices to Airmen
 

Section 4. Canceling/Extending NOTAMs

4-4-1. EXTENDING NOTAM DURATION

a. When there is a need to extend an existing NOTAM time duration, cancel the original NOTAM, and reissue the data as a new NOTAM with the new time.

4-4-2. CANCELLATION OF NOTAMs

a. To cancel a NOTAM, use the same NOTAM/serial number assigned to the original NOTAM by the USNS computer, preceded by the letter C. If the serial number of a NOTAM cancellation is invalid (number not in a master file), no action is taken within the NOTAM system. A cancellation must receive the same dissemination as the NOTAM it cancels. Do not carry the NOTAM text in the cancellation.

EXAMPLE-
!ABC C05/005

b. Stations canceling NOTAMs must check the NOTAM data to ensure the NOTAM's deletion. Retransmit cancellations not acted upon.

c. Cancel NOTAMs containing erroneous information, and reissue. Originate a new NOTAM when data is received amending a current NOTAM, and cancel the previous NOTAM.

4-4-3. CANCELING PUBLISHED NOTAM DATA

a. When data appearing in a NOTAM is printed correctly in a publication or on a chart, cancel the NOTAM. The cancellation must be formatted in the following manner:

EXAMPLE-
!ABC C05/005 PUBLISHED
Or
!DEF C06/006 CHARTED

NOTE-
A cancellation which is transmitted without an explanation means the NOTAM is canceled; for example, !GHI C07/007

b. NOTAMs must remain current until the data is published in one or more of the following, with the exception of NAVAID NOTAMs, which must remain in effect until the NAVAID is returned to service or decommissioned:

1. Airport/Facility directory.

2. En route low altitude charts.

3. En route high altitude charts.

4. Terminal procedures publications.

NOTE-
FDC NOTAMs relating to instrument approach and obstacle departure procedures and airways must remain current until published in the Terminal Procedures Publication or applicable en route chart.

5. Supplements (Alaska and Pacific).

6. Charts (VFR):

(a) Sectional charts.

(b) World aeronautical charts.

(c) Terminal area charts.

NOTE-
The Notice to Airmen Publication (NTAP) conveys NOTAMs to the public until printed correctly on publications listed in subparagraph b above. The NTAP does not cancel NOTAMs but may supplement briefings. The NTAP must not be used as a basis to cancel NOTAMs.

c. NOTAMs concerning Army airfield operations, in addition to the above listed sources, must be researched in the Army Aviation Flight Information Bulletin, if applicable.
