FAA sets intermittent airspace restrictions for UAS.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2019 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced the publication of NOTAM FDC 9/7752, allowing for intermittent airspace restrictions of drones at select federal facilities across the country, the company said.

NOTAMs will be issued in advance indicating the sites where intermittent airspace restrictions will apply. Through the FAA's interactive UAS data visualization tool, operators can identify the status of the airspace:

o When the airspace restrictions are not in effect;

o 24 hours ahead of the airspace restriction going into effect; and

o When the airspace restriction is active.

Airspace restrictions can be found using the UAS Data tool through the FAA's Open Data Initiative. The tool provides an interactive airspace map, downloadable geospatial data, and other important details to ensure awareness of airspace restrictions.
