Section 6. Separation from Airspace Reservations

  1. TEMPORARY STATIONARY AIRSPACE RESERVATIONS

Separate aircraft from a temporary stationary reservation by one of two methods:

  1. Laterally: Clear aircraft so that the protected airspace along the route of flight does not overlap the geographical area of the stationary reservation. (See FIG 8-6-1.)

  1. Vertically: Clear aircraft so that vertical separation exists while the aircraft is within a geographical area defined as the stationary reservation plus a buffer around the perimeter equivalent to one‐half the lateral separation minimum. (See FIG 8-6-2.)

  1. REFUSAL OF AVOIDANCE CLEARANCE

If a pilot refuses to accept a clearance to avoid a reservation, inform him/her of the potential hazard, advise him/her that services will not be provided while the flight is within the reservation and, if possible, inform the appropriate using agency.

  1. TEMPORARY MOVING AIRSPACE RESERVATIONS

Separate aircraft from a temporary moving airspace reservation by one of the following methods:

  1. Laterally: Clear aircraft so that the protected airspace along the route of flight does not overlap the (time‐dependent) geographical area of the moving airspace reservation.
  2. Longitudinally: Clear aircraft so that the appropriate longitudinal minimum exists ahead of the first or behind the last aircraft operating within the reservation.
  3. Vertically: Clear aircraft so that vertical separation exists while the aircraft is within a (time‐dependent) geographical area defined as the moving airspace reservation plus a buffer around the perimeter equivalent to one‐half the lateral separation minimum.
