FAA Issues Flight Prohabition over Iraq and Iran

KICZ A0001/20 - SECURITY..UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FLIGHT PROHIBITION and KICZ A0002/20 - SECURITY..UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FLIGHT PROHIBITION were issued pursuant to the geopolitical concerns in Iran and Iraq. WestWind, as a U.S. based VA is abiding by the direction of the FAA in this matter.

WestWind pilots who may be in Bagdad FIR airspace or Tehran FIR airspace are directed to depart those areas until further notice. These directives will allow flights to depart the area as part of a "waiver" requested and approved by the FAA to remove WestWind assets and personnel from these areas.

WestWind will continue to monitor the situation and will advise if and when the FLIGHT PROHIBITION is rescinded or changed. These prohibitions of flight are issued for the entire FIR region. In these cases, Bagdad and Tehran FIR cover the whole countries of Iraq and Iran.

Australian Rescue Relief Mission

In the last few weeks Australia has been hit with intense brush fires covering large areas, in the eastern segment, of the country. Homes and businesses have been destroyed and the entire area is in a state of emergency. Starting Tuesday, I will be flying supplies from Amsterdam (EHAM) to Sydney (YSSY) making stops along the way to pick up needed supplies.

Flights will be Amsterdam (EHAM) to Singapore (WSSS) to Sydney (YSSY) and back via the same stops. Instead of flying back to Amsterdam (EHAM), I will be stopping in Los Angeles (KLAX) to pick up more supplies.

Pilots at WestWind can help. We need cargo runs to Sydney (YSSY) of various Cargo. Needed supplies are food, medical supplies, water, clothing, and building supplies. Those who prefer shorter flights can help by flying these supplies to KLAX from various points around North America. Lets all pitch in during Australia's time of need.

The Airline Event Code name of this will be Operation EastWind 2020-01 ARRM [Australian Rescue Relief Mission]. Those who fly the ARRM Mission simply select Operation Eastwind 2020-1 ARRM in the Airline events so we know who is participating. More information can be found on the forum by following the title link above.
