Special Flight Rules Area (SFAR) which apply to all aircraft operations below 14,500 feet MSL
Four Flight Free Zones where all aircraft operations are prohibited below 14,500 feet MSL
Corridors between Flight Free Zones where operations below 14,500 feet MSL are permitted
Special air-to-air communication frequencies and altimeter procedures, numerous VFR checkpoints for ease of location identification
The back side, for use ONLY by commercial air tour operators operating under specific authorization of the FAA, depicts color-coded, fixed-wing and rotary-wing routes and altitudes.
