Libya Warnings – Sources
FSB Risk Level:One – Do Not Fly
There are three countries that are categorized by Flight Service Bureau as Level 1 for Airspace risk, marked in red on the SafeAirspace map.
These countries form a large part of the Conflict Zone warnings in effect. All present moderate levels of risk to civil aviation.
We strongly recommend avoiding this airspace entirely. All countries have multiple warnings, and your country of registry is likely to have issued specific instructions not to penetrate these airspaces.
Each of the main information providers for Conflict Zone information – the US, UK, Germany, and France – has strong wording recommending avoiding landing or overflight.
