Warning Areas
2010-03-18

Warning Areas

Same as Restricted area but over international waters beyond 3 mile-

limit of our borders. Contains hazards related to cannon, machine guns, and bombs. Clearance/flight plan required by U. S. aircraft.

Warning areas cannot be designated by the FAA as restricted areas because they are over international waters. Warning areas are regulated by the FAA from 3 to 12 miles but not regulated by the FAA beyond 12 nm.
