CANP for free fliers

Civil Aircraft Notification Procedure

What to do:

1. Check the existing NOTAMs and your club website/social media to see if anyone else has submitted a CANP for the site and time you plan to fly. If you aren't sure, send one anyway.

2. Aim to send the CANP by 8pm the evening before. If you miss that, send it as soon as you can.

3. Select your club, then location, date & times. Try to cover the likely flying window, not just your plan. This will generate a warning cylinder four nautical miles across and up to 2000 feet AGL.

4. The minimum number of pilots for a CANP to be accepted is five. If you submit a CANP or publish your intentions on social media then it’s safe to assume that sufficient pilots will turn up.

5. Add a contact telephone number that will be available on site and your email for confirmation by reply. You need to put your real details in here because LFBC use this to confirm the NOTAM back to you.

6. THE NOTAM IS ONLY ACTIVE ONCE YOU HAVE RECEIVED A REFERENCE NUMBER BY PHONE/EMAIL OR ONCE YOU SEE IT PUBLISHED AS A NOTAM ON "NOTAM INFO" OR SIMILAR APP/WEBSITE.

7. Post the reference number, site, date and times on Telegram etc to prevent others duplicating your effort.

8. Pat yourself on the back for keeping yourself and others safe! ☺
