Ground Stop Earlier Today For ALL Domestic Flights

Overnight the NOTAM system from the F.A.A. was down. This is a first and left millions stranded in Canada and U.S. Between 9am and 9.30am EST the system came back online however this did not restore everything immediately. As many airports and airlines started moving it took others longer to re start operations.

Pilots had never seen NOTAM down and brought the industry to a halt with surprise. Both American and Unite airlines were some of the first to report it had suspended all flights including inbound and out bound international flights as well as all domestic. Canada airspace was also affected as F.A.A maintains all services to Canada as part of the U.S. known as the North American airspace.

Another major headache for all flight personnel along with all of us that fly. It’s extremely unfortunate and was without warning. President Biden earlier today said it was a system failure and not of any intentional attacks to the system. Today marked an event that nobody ever experienced or imagine. Unfortunate but nothing we can do about this at Airline Adviser. As an advocacy for pilots, flight attendants and all of us that fly this is one event that was out of everyone’s hands and no action other that the agencies to be try and prevent ever happening again.
