AFSS Call Tree "Quick Steps"

When calling Lockheed Martin Flight Services, you can use the following "quick steps" to navigate through the LMFS Call Tree, in place of voice recognition.

For the WX-BRIEF line (800-992-7433)

Press 1 to speak to a Briefer, and enter the two digit postal State Code on your telephone keypad (see table, below).

Press 3 to listen to TIBS, enter in the two digit postal State Code on your telephone keypad (see table, below).

Press 5 to hear Special Announcements.

For the TIBS only line, call 877-484-2799

If prompted, enter the two-digit State Code on your telephone keypad. Remember, if there is a third digit connected to the State Code that you wish to use, wait for the prompt before entering the third digit or you will receive an error message. When requesting information and using the State Codes, please note that six states—California, Florida, Illinois, Nevada, New York and Texas—are split into "North" and "South."
