Starting the New Year off right the Bayou City Flyers club newsletter returns with the effort of our new Newsletter Editor - Joe Chauffe. What is the NOTAM? The FAA uses the acronym for "Notice To Airmen". It's a notice containing a wealth of information that may include facility changes, procedures, hazards, etc.
