GRAPHICAL TFR NOTAM INFORMATION

EFFECTIVE JUNE 15, 2003, THE FAA, WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF JEPPESEN, WILL BEGIN PROVIDING GRAPHICAL TFR PRODUCTS ON THE FAA WEBSITE. GRAPHICAL TFRs WILL BE CREATED BY THE FLIGHT SERVICE OPERATIONS SUPPORT CENTER (FSOSC) LOCATED IN FAA HEADQUARTERS. THESE PRODUCTS WILL BE DISSEMINATED OVER THE INTERNET TO ALL FLIGHT SERVICE STATIONS TO ASSIST IN PILOT WEATHER BRIEFINGS.

THE FIRST 90 DAYS AFTER IMPLEMENTATION WILL SERVE AS A TEST PHASE AS THE FAA BEGINS TO MIGRATE THIS SERVICE FROM THE JEPPESEN SERVER ONTO AN FAA SERVER. IT WILL ALSO ALLOW THE FAA TO GATHER RESPONSES FROM THE PUBLIC SO THAT MODIFICATIONS TO THE PRODUCTS CAN ALSO BE MADE DURING THE TRANSITION PROCESS. PILOTS WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS INFORMATION AT THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS:

WWW.FAA.GOV (CLICK ON GRAPHICAL TFRS)

ADDITIONALLY, THERE WILL BE ACCESS TO THE JEPPESEN WEBSITE FOR THE DOWNLOADING OF THE TFR PROTOCOL DOCUMENT. INTERESTED VENDORS AND/OR PUBLIC WHO WISH TO USE THE FAA TFR PUBLISHING SYSTEM TO DISPLAY REAL TIME GRAPHICAL TFR NOTAMS CAN USE THIS DOCUMENT TO RECEIVE DATA PACKETS AND IMPLEMENT GRAPHICAL DISPLAYS OR OTHER VALUE-ADDED SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS.
