USA lifted ban on civil aviation flights in the Crimea region

United States lifts US civilian flight ban imposed in 2014 aviation in certain zones of the flight information area of ​​Simferopol. This is stated in the official notification of the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), published in the Federal Register.


The document, published on Friday, comes into force on October 27, 2020.

This amendment does not extend the ban on certain flight operations in certain areas of the flight information area of ​​Simferopol (...) due to changes in conditions in the airspace and the associated reduction in the level of danger for US civil aviation

- says the text of the notification.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) noted that the security situation in the Simferopol region has "stabilized."

While the FAA expects the Russian Federation to continue making illegal territorial claims and supporting a competitive air navigation service provider for the foreseeable future, Ukraine has shown a strong commitment to take appropriate measures to minimize the remaining safety risks. (...)

- said the FAA.

The agency says that "these actions" have sufficiently reduced the danger to civil aviation flying along routes over the Black Sea to allow civil flights from the United States to resume traffic in the Crimea region.

At the same time, it is emphasized that the United States is extending the ban for civil aviation on flights to the flight information areas of the Dnieper (formerly Dnipropetrovsk) for another year due to the persistence of "danger for civil aviation" in connection with the military conflict in Donbas. The flight ban will remain in effect until October 27, 2021.

Flight Information Region (FIR, from the English Flight Information Region) is an airspace of a certain size, within which flight information services and emergency notification are provided.

          As if other territories of the Russian Federation, where the routes of air communications, along which the planes of their airlines fly, are not interesting for them.

    Is this the first step towards the recognition of this airspace by Russia? After all, it provides support for flights over the Crimea. Or has the CIA devised a new provocation ?! Believe Anglo-Saxons - do not respect yourself.

        The new airport in Simferopol is more technically equipped than the airport in Kiev. And the staff members realized that it was safer to fly through the Crimea than through Ukraine.

            hi I hope they will not stand on ceremony: they will not pay as it should be - you may not be allowed to lay an economical route: there are excellent workarounds, probably only more expensive, but slippery situations will not arise. Capitalists do not tolerate losses well, but who does not care to pay them

    Question: if they fly, who will be paid?
    If Russia, then it turns out, they recognized that KRYMNASH.
    And if Ukraine, then ... to the border and back lol

    What has changed? And what does Ukraine have to do with it?
    It has always been and is always safe in the RF zone, which cannot be said about the "non-brothers".
    They didn’t admit why they didn’t close the sky over Donbass in the 14th, although they were piling them there in batches.
    Either because of natural greed, or ahead of time, they had malicious intent.

    And how many more should Ukraine shoot down civilian planes so that the FAU understands that Ukraine is the most dangerous entity in the region.

    Have they assured you that they will no longer shoot down civilian planes? You should not hide behind Ukraine and some of its mythical actions over Russian territory. They would say frankly that flying this route is not so expensive financially.

    An interesting phrase: Will the Americans use Ukrainian navigation services when flying over Crimea, or will they be Russians? And then there will be no one to ask at all! They won with MN-17 were able to grease their dispatchers .................

    Under the Soviet Union, all air traffic control over the Crimea and the Black Sea was carried out by the USSR. After the collapse, everyone rushed to grab their pieces from the money pie, the Black Sea was divided into sectors. Since 2014, over the Crimea and Dnepropetrovsk, a ban was imposed on GA flights due to solidarity against annexation, hostilities in the Donbass, sanctions ... But in a crisis, flying around such a vast region became simply unprofitable. Better to shorten the route and save fuel. In addition, although they do not yet speak, the hostilities in Karabakh and Syria greatly complicate the routes from Southeast Asia to Europe. I suppose that now they can pave the way over the Crimea and the North Caucasus ...

    askort154..USA lifted the ban on civil aviation flights in the Crimea region

    Not everything is clear from the article. I looked deeper on this topic, and what happens. I will try in a nutshell in an accessible language, only the general meaning.
    All airspace allocated for air routes is served by the FIR (Flight Information Region), to provide crews with all flight information and control the aircraft when flying in their area. Over the Crimea and up to the "middle" of the Black Sea, everything
    FIR Simferopol. After Crimea returned home, the US and EU excluded Simferopol FIR from service, believing that Ukraine would replace it with its FIR. But Ukraine behaved as usual. In every possible way, she interfered with accurate work, often introduced restrictions, declaring "dangerous zones for flights", under the guise of military exercises, which were actually located in the FIR zone of Simferopol. Aviation companies flying across the Black Sea (not over the Crimea) are tired of this "mess". So the United States decided to return its status to the Simferopol FIR, making sure that it fully ensures the safety of flights in its FIR. In addition, all the information from the EPI is provided by the American collection "Jepsen" (there is also a German Lido), and this is money. All this does not mean that they will start flying to Simferopol, but Svidomo clicked on the forehead. yes

    ... read and rejoice at the excerpts ... and why did not they write further the text - "The new edition of special federal aviation regulations (SFAR 113) indicates that Ukraine has taken effective measures to ensure the safety of civil aviation in the Simferopol flight information region, namely in international airspace where responsibility for air traffic services is delegated to Ukraine.
    At the same time, the airspace over the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea was and remains inaccessible for planning and performing flights in accordance with the decision of the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine. "What flights over the Crimea itself? Flights only in international airspace. Roll your lip with international recognition.
