I am doing a notam check for
EGKA GWC KENET BZN EGCW
and get this
The old BZ doesn’t work either
and you cannot put in EGVN because airport IDs are not valid for ICAO flight plans
This is the official briefing facility run by the very people who are running the new 100% bust-them-all policy.
And sure enough here is a notam vital to national security – one of the royals going to lunch. Definitely get busted for that one.

Luckily it starts 1605 UTC…
I did the flight yesterday, and found the KLN94 database no longer contains BZ (which it used to) or BZN.
Can anyone confirm if a GTN or IFD contains these waypoints?
The G1000 DA42 I was flying yesterday definitely had the BZ in the current database as I used it as a waypoint
The GTN 750 PC sim has both (BZN categorised as a VOR – you cannot search for TACANs – or DMEs).
To quote the NTSB chairman. “NOTAMs are just a pile of garbage.”
Here it is engaged as a FPL waypoint
