Each day of #NOTEMBER 2019, we’ll post a fresh idea from one of the 1,344 comments and suggestions we received through the Notam Survey. Your feedback helps to develop the conversation around NOTAMs, and helps the Notam Team to work on the solutions.
”Get rid of the multitude of "Enroute / Chart change NOTAMS". There are far too many to digest, especially on a long haul flight. Airway changes, intersection changes, etc. are all things that should be dealt with in the AIRAC cycle and already be in my Nav Database.PilotNotam Survey 2019

Couldn’t agree more! 🙂
there are two sides of a coin.
Publishing new airways an intersections per NOTAM might be necessary in case of crisis situations like the closure of areas, just think about Pakistan closure…
If you stick to AIRAC procedures you’ll not be able to operate in the area till the next cycle.
But I fully agree that corrections to previous publications, in fact the genuine meaning of NOTAM, should be kept to a minimum.
These days, we are more and more flying from point to point, either by ATC or FCM asking directs in order to optimize flights.
I can get the point of these routes in case of communication failure and/or route planning, but on daily basis we use tools which could integrate this database in real time basis. Why creating extra work and spending all these resources for a service which is no more used by FCM during productive work?
Exactly, anyway nobody reads them…
