Airspace Use Plan (AUP)

AUP contains information regarding ATS-routes that have been either closed (CDR1, PERM) or opened (CDR2) by AMC. AUP contains also TSA, TRA and CBA areas approved by AMC.

AUP validity period begins at the day of operations (D) at 0600 UTC and it ends at 0600 UTC the following day (D+1).

Updated Airspace Use Plan (UUP)

AMC may update published AUP and/or UUP by publishing an Updated Airspace Use Plan after receiving notification of airspace reservation cancellation.

UUP contains information regarding ATS-routes that have been either closed (CDR1, PERM) or opened (CDR2) by AMC and approved TSA, TRA and CBA areas.

UUP may be published as follows:

  • UUP6 may published either at the before operations (D-1) at 2000 UTC (summertime 1900 UTC) or at the day of operations (D) before 0600 UTC. UUP6 validity period is 0600 UTC - 0600 UTC and it replaces the AUP published earlier.
  • At the day of operations between 0700 UTC and 2000 UTC (summertime 1900 UTC) UUP may published once in an hour and its validity begins always on the hour by replacing an AUP or UUP published before.

Fields of AUP/UUP:

In the Available Category 2 CDRs field is shown information of those CDR2s AMC has opened on a pretactical level for flight planning purposes.

In the Closed ATS routes and Category 1 CDRs fields is shown information of those CDR1s and PERM routes that AMC has closed on a pretactical level and which are not available for flight planning purposes.

In the AMA Manageable Areas (FUA level 2) field is shown information of TSA, TRA and CBA areas that have been accepted and allocated by AMC. Notice: lower and upper limits below transition altitude (5000ft AMSL in Finland) are shown numerically correct, example: FL030=3000ft AMSL.

In the NAM Manageable Areas (FUA level 1) and Reduced Coordination Airspace (RCA) fields there will be no information in Finland.

In the AMA Manageable Areas (FUA level 2) field is shown information of TSA, TRA and CBA areas that have been accepted and allocated by AMC. Notice: lower and upper limits below transition altitude (5000ft AMSL in Finland) are shown numerically correct, example: FL030=3000ft AMSL.

Notice 2: A letter (Z, R, S, T etc) following ID of TSA, TRA or CBA refers to an activated FUA restriction or Flight Plan Buffer Zone (FBZ). FUA restriction and/or FBZ is applicable only for IFR FPL promulgation and they can be disregarded during VFR operations.
