The following is a brief summary of the A/FD information. However, all pilots and interested persons should review the latest edition of the A/FD for the most current information. 

Pilots should always contact the nearest FAA Flight Service Station (FSS) for the most current NOTAMs on Gwinnett County Airport (LZU). 1-800-WX-BRIEF, NOTAM File LZU.

A NOTAM is a notice to airmen, designed to share important information related to the status of an airport. Due to FAA procedures, most local NOTAMs at LZU will not be filed more than 72 hours in advance. Contact the Flight Service Station, monitor the ATIS, and check published NOTAMs for the most up-to-date information.
