Aviation prides itself on safety. There is a glaring gap.

Every day, every airline flight in the world: Pilots are forced to use a broken, archaic briefing system from the 1920's, and as a result, they regularly miss critical flight information.

What would have been the single worst disaster in aviation history - Air Canada 759, in July 2017 - was averted by only 1 second. The cause: this flawed briefing system, meaning the pilots did not realize their runway was closed.

The briefing system, or Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) is a worldwide standard, and presents information in a coded, upper case, incredibly un-human-friendly format, is overloaded with irrelevant information, and creates 100 page briefing packages for flight crews that are simply impossible to read and understand. For every pilot and passenger alike, this creates unacceptable risk.

It is imperative that change comes soon. Support this petition to underscore the importance of bringing change to the NOTAM system.
