NOTAM Tracker provides an easy way to keep up-to-date on the latest NOTAM changes for your specific area or route. NOTAM Tracker remembers which Notices-to-Airmen you have already seen, flagging new NOTAMs as well as ones that have just been deleted. Unlike web pages such as AOPA's, NOTAM Tracker downloads an official DUATS briefing as its data source every time you use it - so you will always have the most up-to-date information available for your specific airport or route, as provided by the FAA.
Additionally NOTAM Tracker scans DUATS briefings for latitude/longitude coordinates, creating an index of TFRs, new obsticles and FAA waypoints. Besides location coordinates, NOTAM tracker extracts TFR radius and altitude information from the briefing whenever possible. Garmin portable GPS users may automatically upload these TFRs/obsticles/waypoints to their GPS, making it much easier to ensure you're not violating the many new and changing airspace restrictions. Users with PDAs may export their briefing to their device, where it can be viewed in full color*.
While web sites like AOPA's have done an excellent job of trying to keep pilots informed of changing NOTAMs, they are often not updated on weekends and after hours, they aren't the official (and legal) FAA source, and they don't include local NOTAMs for your area - such as firefighting TFRs and temporarily closed runway notices. NOTAM Tracker provides all of these and more!
