AP / 1B : DOD Flight Information Publication : Area Planning- Military Training Routes : North and South America The AP / 1B DOD Flight Information Publication for Military Training Routes provides all the coordinates for location of the airspaces , hours of operation , aircraft operating floor and ceiling where military activity is authorized and the controlling agency information . This is the pilot ’ s resource for awareness of hazards , shared airspace , and potential conflicts with other military airspace .
Government Airspace Coordination Procedures The Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facility , Virginia Capes ( FACSFAC VACAPES ), operating the call sign Giant Killer , is responsible for scheduling , controlling , and surveilling military operating areas , training routes , and bombing ranges for a large portion of the northeastern US . Giant Killer oversees more than 112,000 miles of offshore air , surface , and subsurface operating areas on the east coast and provides air traffic control for over 98,000 sorties per year . This includes ensuring surface and subsurface units are deconflicted from other operations in the airspace . Use of airspace ( over water / Warning Airspace ) by SJAFB aircraft is booked / reserved through the approved scheduling mechanism . SJAFB submits requests for airspace to FACSFAC VACAPES three weeks prior to the requested mission dates . FACSFAC VACAPES in‐turn approves the schedule approximately four to five days prior to the scheduled week of missions .
Findings
• The portion of Albemarle Sound between Perquimans , Tyrrell and Washington counties contains multiple military airspaces – Restricted Areas and MTRs controlled by different military agencies . There are various tools and procedures in place among the multiple airspace
managers to safely manage and coordinat only helps ensure safe aircraft operations risks to recreational boaters and fishers o
ISSUE COM‐10
Lack of Information to Publi Because of competition for us recreational boaters and fishe be cleared where restricted ar areas , and military training rou when active training and oper throughout the Study Area .
Compatibility Assessment Similar to the COM‐9 issue discussion , the JLUS S network of various military airspaces which allow the ground / water surface . These areas compris and Military Operating Areas ( MOAs ) and includ Sound between Perquimans , Tyrrell and Washin off of Dare and Hyde counties between the Oute River including coastal areas of southern Hyde C of Beaufort County on the south side of the Rive
North Carolina is known for its abundant natural airspaces over the waters of North Carolina are n make the area ideal for boating and fishing . The natural resources including the water bodies and training can present challenges for the safety of particularly when these military airspaces are ac be cleared of human activity .
