FAA Data Optimization Summit

Join the FAA, DoD, and aviation industry representatives in an active dialog to help shape our shared path in modernizing Aeronautical Information (AI) and Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) data.

What can I learn during the FAA Data Optimization Summit?

This inaugural Summit brings together current and prospective users of Aeronautical Information (AI) and Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) data for a full day of ideation and discussion. You'll hear about the current AI/NOTAM modernization efforts underway and what's planned moving forward. You'll see demonstrations of data available today and have time to talk with subject matter experts who are working on making this data available in ways that are valuable to you.

How can I contribute during the Summit?

As a valued member of the aviation community, we value your active engagement in a dialog on the innovative ways you are using AI/NOTAM data today; where you are having challenges; what's working; and how we can enhance FAA data for pilots, aviation operators, and other NOTAM consumers. If you are working with or using AI/NOTAM data (e.g., accessing, filtering, packaging, distributing, and/or using the data), we look forward to hearing from you real-time during the Summit.
