Huh.. finally it has come to an end.. Hope this would be informative for people who want to know about this.. NOTAMs (Notice to Airmens) are been made as simple as that.. so i guess Abbre.. need to learnt as every second wasting would lead to many changes when you are flying 😛 … Catch you with something more about Aircrafts in the commercial stream..
