Pilots Advised to "C.Y.A."
As ANN predicted Monday afternoon, the Department
of Homeland Security has raised the current national security
threat level from "Yellow" to "Orange." This is reportedly in
response to the upcoming military actions expected (within 48
hours, we hear) in Iraq.
We have also been updated about a new plan to be named
"Operation Liberty Shield" that
is being put in place. It will dictate specific
orders to protect the nation's "critical infrastructures," and
we expect that will mean the imposition of increased security
at borders, airports, and all ports of entry.
With this development, pilots can expect additional flight
restrictions throughout the country, particularly in the New
York and Washington, D.C., areas. Other restrictions may be put in
place near military installations, nuclear powerplants, and other
"sensitive" areas, as deemed appropriate by National Security
Pilots can expect more limitations, more poor/limited
warning/communication about same, and lots of potential for trouble
and violations as they try to fly in the US.
Pilots are urged to carefully operate near any
area that might remotely be considered as "sensitive," and to
regularly update themselves with FSS and ATC
(enroute) in order to keep from running afoul of any new
restrictions or operating limitations that may be announced and
instigated with little or no warning. As always, we'll keep you
