There are other airspace designations that you should be aware of. Refer to the FARs for specifics, but here is an overview:

  • Prohibited areas: ones in which you cannot fly
  • Restricted areas: ones in which you cannot fly without permission or following published rules
  • Warning areas: include strong cautions when flying over large bodies of water
  • Military operation areas (MOAs): might limit your movement in them or simply tell you what to watch for and where.
  • Alert areas: tell you of special traffic notices such as an abundance of student pilots
  • Controlled firing areas: Don’t go there!
  • National security areas: protect the national and state capital buildings as well as where the president or vice president might be working or vacationing
