What are special-use airspaces?

March, 25, 2022 by

Special use airspace (SUA) consists of that airspace wherein activities must be confined because of their nature, or wherein limitations are imposed upon aircraft operations that are not a part of those activities, or both. SUA areas are depicted on aeronautical charts, except for controlled firing areas (CFA), temporary military operations areas (MOA), and temporary restricted areas.

These airspaces will be identified on the map in-app with a magenta line. For the purposes of Infinite Flight these are currently not enforced or monitored at this time, but they may be in the future.
