Volume 3, Chapter 25, Section 1, General Topics;

Volume 3, Chapter 26, Section 5, Use of Flight Information Services on the Flight Deck – Parts 91K, 121, and 135; and

Volume 3, Chapter 26, Section 6, Notices to Airmen.

Paragraphs 3-737, 3-1923, 3-2141 through 3-2147, and 3-2155 through 3-2160 incorporate new information on flight deck flight information systems.

Creates a new: Volume 3, Chapter 26, Section 5, Use of Flight Information Services on the Flight Deck—Parts 91K, 121, and 135; and Volume 3, Chapter 26, Section 6, Notices to Airmen. New content in Volume 3, Chapter 26 has been established in section 5 to provide guidance related to use of Flight Information Services on the Flight Deck. In the past 6 years a number of substantial changes have taken place with regard to NOTAMs. It was decided that NOTAM guidance should be placed into its own section of the 8900.1 to provide a single source of information. As a result, a new section in 8900.1 Volume 3, Chapter 26 was established. Section 6 is now devoted entirely to NOTAMs.


Incorporates new information into: Volume 3, Chapter 18, Section 3, Part A Operations Specifications—General; and Volume 3, Chapter 25, Section 1, General Topics. In conjunction with the establishment of the NOTAM section in the 8900.1, guidance related to OpSpec A009 was updated. OpSpec A009 is the vehicle for authorizing a system to disseminate NOTAMs. The update to the guidance was necessary to include information related to 91K and 125.
