Missing Restricted Area Depiction

Donald M 3 years ago updated by Eric.Rush (Project Lead) 3 years ago 1

At least one Restricted area, R-5314, is not depicted on the chart. It's  obscured by the Phelps A MOA, which is the same size and shape. Info for R-5314 is is available by right-clicking--but because only the  MOA colors are depicted, a pilot might not think to right-click and could easily fly into bad trouble there.

Hello,

The R-5314 areas are actually represented on the charts but as you pointed out, it is directly overlapped by the PHELPS MOA. You can see the blue and red colors in the hatched area but I agree, it might be difficult to see. Sectional charts don't represent this much better but they tend to favor the blue color over the red when areas like this overlap.


We recommend that users of the flight planner keep the "Special Use Airspace Labels" overlay turned on when operating or planning in areas with restricted areas and MOAs. This will display the labels in blue for the restricted areas as well as the MOAs which helps to identify overlapping special use airspace. See screenshot below.
