I'm running EasyVFR4 (free edition) on an iPhone and have noticed some expired NOTAMS still displaying although the end date has since past.

These are related to Out of season training for the Reds at Waddington EGXW. This is covered by AIC M108/2023 but expired 30th November today is now 14th December.

Anyone know why these are still showing?

Hi Alexander,

Welcome to the forum. To test I have freshly downloaded the UK on my installation and do not have the NOTAM you mentioned near EGXW.

Can you share a screenshot of it?

And can you please check if your NOTAMs are up to date? Tap on the (red/amber/green) Status dot to open the Status card -> Data. When were the NOTAMs last downloaded?

 

Cheers,
Tim

Hi Tim, I updated the Notams as soon as I opened the app. I am getting this Danger area flagged up but note the date of validity.

Note screenshot form the Windows App as it shows the same. The AIC is not listed on NATS IBS as it's out of date and no longer current or relevant.

And similarly theres is this one that has also expired but still listed and also showing on the chart. Note this was screenshot from the Windows App as I was looking to see if it was a phone vs PC thing but seems to be the same.

The AIC is not even listed on the NATS website as its out of date...

Hi Alexander,
 
Thanks for sharing the screenshot. What you shared is not a NOTAM, but an Airspace that can be activated by NOTAM within a specific date range.
 
If you're using the free EasyVFR Essential tier, you'll see all Airspaces and NOTAMs regardless of their activation status and filters.
However, with the paid EasyVFR Live tier, EasyVFR will provide you with information on active airspaces based on AIP set dates, active NOTAMs, and Airspace Use Plan. You can also filter out irrelevant NOTAM types.
 
You can find more details about pricing and plans here:

https://easyvfr4.aero#pricing-and-plans .

If the airspace doesn't exist in the next AIRAC cycle, it'll be removed from the database upon updating.

Let me know if this explanation makes sense to you.
Cheers,
Tim

Hi Tim,

Yeah that does make sense, if I'm understanding the gist correctly, even if not the terms. What exactly is the AIRAC cycle and how often is the cycle? I just expected that non-relevant info would be filtered out "live" as it were, unless that's the compromise of the free version and perhaps deliberate to try to steer people towards the paid for versions...?

Thanks,

Alex
