Restricted Areas 

This topic shows how to view restricted areas on the map. 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

Restricted areas

Some restricted areas only apply to certain flight levels, so a flight path through an area displayed as restricted on the Map may not be passing through a restricted area in reality; it may be passing above or below the restricted area.

There are several types of restricted airspace that NAVBLUE Flight Plan takes into account when generating a route when in the Options group. At present, the MTTA will avoid Danger, Prohibited and Restricted areas whenever possible when generating a flight plan with the Avoid Restricted Areas checkbox selected. In instances where a restricted area cannot be avoided and the flight path enters a restricted area, a report is appended to the flight plan.

Restricted areas which are activated by NOTAM are not currently being avoided. This functionality requires a format change that needs to be done prior to use, as this is the best way to warn dispatchers if an area cannot be avoided.

The restricted areas can be overlaid on the Map and are color-coded.


View Restricted Area Information

You can zoom in on the map to view more detailed information on a restricted area.


Once zoomed in, you can view more information on a restricted area by moving your mouse over the restricted area on the map and clicking on it using your secondary mouse button.


User-Defined Restricted Areas

NFP also allows the user to define restricted areas. User-defined restricted areas are displayed in the color that corresponds to the restricted area type. For information on setting up a user-defined restricted area, refer to FOMS Menu 380 (User Defined Restricted Regions Program).
