Note

The dimensions of these military training areas (MTA) are published for identification and consideration. In general, a MTA consists of several sub-parts in form of defined airspace modules. Depending on individual military mission profiles the airspace dimension required for the specific operational training or exercises will be flexibly composed by combination of one or more allocated sub-parts to a suitable airspace block. The optimum airspace required can be simulated through respective tools.
