NAVAID NOTAMs are displayed as a graphical overlay on the map or chart to assist in navigation. The NOTAMs are displayed using the applicable NAVAID symbol, which are color-coded using the following classification:

  • Red – Out of Service or Withdrawn
  • Orange – Limitations

NAVAID NOTAMs that will become active in the future are displayed in yellow, and the upcoming visibility range is configurable between 3 and 48 hours.


  • From the Map or Flight Plan page, select Overlays from the map layer icon
  • Select NOTAMs to enable the overlay
  • Use the Radial Menu and select the NOTAM segment for more information

NOTAMs may also be viewed by selecting the NOTAMs widget in split screen mode.

NOTAM Overlay Filtering

To date, the NOTAM overlay has displayed airspace, obstacle and UAS NOTAMs simultaneously. Based upon user feedback, we have added the ability to hide the Obstacle, NAVIAD or UAS NOTAM overlay, as desired.

To filter NOTAMS:

  • From the Map or Flight Plan page, select Filters from the map layer icon
  • Enable the filter to Hide Obstacle, NAVAID or UAS NOTAMs
