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.
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).
