The French Issue a new Over flight safety and conflict Zones – Private aircraft

It has been four years since MH 370 went down. Of all the mishaps, this one left a deeper impact within all of us. Why? Because it could’ve been anyone of us flying that route, reading the same boring unreadable NOTAM about a new tree and a new runway light INOP. These NOTAMS and not worth the weight of the paper they’re written on.

Icarus Jet trip support coming up with a new Interactive World map that will have all the cautionary tales, real and perceived, and it will take a hover of a mouse for you to extract all the Information on it. Furthermore, all our Crew members, dispatchers will be able to write their own experiences so that all the others could add to it and also benefit from it.

Speaking of World Maps and conflict zones, I wanted to inform you that the French and the Germans have both Issued warnings on overflying Saudi Arabia. I want to reiterate that at Icarus Jet trip support, your safety is our number one priority and we will never file a route that would jeopardize your safety and security.

To exercise caution during flight operations in the airspace of Saudi Arabia (OEJD/JEDDAH FIR) and follow instructions given by the Saudi authorities providing air traffic services, particularly in the southwest of Saudi airspace in which SCATANA (Security Control of Air Traffic and Air Navigation Aids rules) may be activated by NOTAM by the Saudi authorities;

– Not to operate any flights to OEAB/Abha, OEGN/Jazan, OENG/Nejran, OESH/Sharurah, OEWD/Wadi Al Dawasir and OEBH/Bisha airports located in the southwest of the FIR – these airports should not be planned as alternates either.

Please see the entire list of countries that you’re cautioned against flying over or only above a certain Flight Level.
