The US operators are now been barred from flying over or in the airspace region of the Damascus Flight Information Region (FIR), which covers Syria. This Notice to Airmen (Notam) was summoned by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on 19th August ’14. The new notice is added in replacement to a previous notice in which the FAA has strictly advised the US operators not to fly over Syria and should contact the agency prior entering that region. Depending on the revised evaluation of the risk associated in these operations and less number of requests from the US operators to fly over Syria, the FAA has released a statement saying that it is wise to avoid US operators from flying in the airspace of Syria. Syria’s conflicts and fickle security measures at present are posing a threat to the local aviation. The extremist activities and armed troops in Syria are believed to be well-armed with numerous anti-aircraft weapons. Such weapons have the capacity to terrorize the local carriers. These extremist troops have been successful in dashing the Military Aircraft of Syria with all the terror creating weapons they hold and have warned off the local air planes from providing aid to Syria. The FAA on 8th August ’14 summoned another Notam that prohibited the US air carriers from functioning over the regions of Iraq, specific parts which come under the ISIS. In this warning these aircrafts were warned to fly at a minimum height of 30,000 feet above the country’s ground which later was reduced to 20,000 feet.
