How to issue a UK Notice to Airmen ( NOTAM )
Our Safety Officer Nick Chitty has created a online tutorial on how to post a NOTAM.
Please take the time to have a watch and use the template to post your own NOTAM before you fly, preferably the night before. Do not just rely on the assumption that another pilot has already done this.
