As a Part 102 certified drone operator, Airways New Zealand has some specific requirements when you submit a NOTAM (Notice for Airmen).

Please ensure that your submission includes the following information:

  1. LATITUDE/LONGITUDE AND RADIUS OF THE FLIGHT
  2. PLACE NAME DESCRIPTION
  3. START AND FINISH TIME INCLUDING DAY AND MONTH  AND WHETHER IN LOCAL TIME OR UTC
  4. MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF OPERATION IN FEET

What is a NOTAM?

A NOTAM contains:

  • any important information that could affect the safe flight of an aircraft, or
  • information that is required by the pilot to conduct safe operations.

A NOTAM is issued when:

  • there is insufficient time to publish information in the AIPNZ, or
  • changes are of short duration.

A NOTAM can be requested by emailing nof@airways.co.nz, completing a NOTAM Request Form (see Submission Forms) or requesting via the Airways IFIS website at www.ifis.airways.co.nz.
