Flights across the United States have been grounded due to a computer failure at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The affected system, NOTAMS (Notice to Air Missions) sends out real-time restrictions and flight hazards to pilots.

As Reuters reported, The Federal Aviation Administration was working to restore a system that alerts pilots to hazards and changes to airport facilities and procedures that had stopped processing updated information.

“The FAA is still working to fully restore the Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) system following an outage. While some functions are beginning to come back on line, National Airspace System operations remain limited,” the Aviation body said on Twitter.

An initial statement released by the agency reads:

“THE FAA is experiencing an outage that is impacting the update of NOTAMS. All flights are unable to be released at this time.”

The latest ATCSC advisory says the “outage continues with no current estimated time of restoration.”

However, the AGENCY released a statement that the agency is “performing final validation checks and repopulating the system and will provide frequent updates” as progress is made.

The problem appears widespread, and a quick check of the term “FAA” on Twitter reveals many angry travelers venting frustrations at Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg.
