Idea #6:

The reason for abbreviations was due to teletype machines and to save bandwidth...those days are LONG GONE. Use plain English. Its that simple.

    I agree there is a problem with NOTAMs. The biggest problem is to find relevant information in the big NOTAM file. But to be honest, I like abbreviations. I prefer seeing RWY06L CLSD rather than Runway 06 Left is closed, it’s easier to read. We should remember that NOTAM is Notice To AirMen (or AirwoMen) not “Notice to the public”.
