iNavCalc now includes NOTAMs

I'm delighted to announce that iNavCalc now includes NOTAMs. You don't need to do anything to enable this functionality. The NOTAMs will automatically appear in a PDF attachment (alongside the others) in your PLOG email generated via the iNavCalc mobile app, email app, or web app.

The NOTAMs included in the PDF report for your specified route are summarised as follows:
  • Airfield NOTAMs for each waypoint in your route. If a given waypoint is not an ICAO airfield, then the nearest ICAO airfield is used instead.
  • FIR (Flight Information Region) NOTAMs along your route. The FlyLogical database includes all current ICAO FIR regions (more than 400). When preparing the FIR NOTAMs report, iNavCalc searches for the relevant FIR regions along the route.

Acknowledgements

Let me take the opportunity to say a big "thank you" to the US FAA for providing free access to their global NOTAMs web-service. Moreover, their support team has been second-to-none when it comes to providing timely feedback to my technical questions...evenings and weekends, no barrier !

Enjoy this FREE service (and let me know of any issues...)
