That could include license suspensions and civil penalties up to $1,100 per violation, such as entering restricted airspace, failing to respond to communications, and failing to be properly informed of flight restrictions.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) confirmed that F-16s were scrambled from Andrews Air Force Base. "The fighters dispensed four flares within restricted airspace to get the pilot's attention and then escorted the aircraft out of the ADIZ (Air Defense Identification Zone)," according to NORAD.
Former CNN anchor Bernard Shaw, who lives in the area, said he saw two F-16 jets circle the single-engine plane and fire warning flares. The F-16s then appeared to direct the small aircraft away from the downtown area, Shaw said.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Beginning in mid-May, pilots who intrude into restricted airspace over the nation's capital will be warned by pulsating red and green laser beams, part of a government effort to prevent a terrorist attack.
The U.S. military will activate the ground-based lasers whenever unauthorized or unresponsive aircraft enter the restricted zone, a huge swath of airspace surrounding the region's three major airports.
Incursions into the restricted space are common. NORAD officials said there are typically two or three incursions a day, usually by pilots not familiar with the restrictions or who stray from their intended flight paths.
Following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the government severely restricted air traffic in the region. It established an Air Defense Identification Zone -- an area consisting of a 30-mile diameter circle around Reagan Washington National Airport and 22-mile circles around Dulles and Baltimore-Washington international airports.
The Department would like to clarify that certain Canadian airport security authorities, although under no international obligation, provide passes to diplomatic and consular couriers to access and facilitate movement in the secure areas of their airports for the purpose of receiving diplomatic and consular bags. Under revised Transport Canada guidelines, all NEW applications for restricted area passes and renewals of existing ones must now be accompanied by completed Transportation Security Clearance (TSC) and fingerprints forms. No application for a Restricted Area Pass shall be processed by the Airport Authority unless the applicant has submitted all information required by the Minister of Transport for Canada and that this information has been reviewed and vetted by Transport Canada.

In 2006, the FAA issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) docket number 17005 concerning making the temporary rules permanent. Over 20,000 responses were received, the vast majority of them in opposition to making the temporary rules permanent. There were two public hearings held by the FAA in the Washington D.C. area on the NPRM. All speakers were opposed to making the NPRM permanent. The FAA published transcripts of the public hearings. The transcripts were later withdrawn from the public as they were alleged to contain Sensitive Security Information, but were returned following review.
On February 17, 2009, the status of the ADIZ was scheduled to change from a temporary flight restriction to a permanent special flight rules area. On February 6, 2009, White House officials declined a request to postpone the implementation.
In May 2005, NORAD started using a laser warning system to warn pilots that cross into restricted airspace. The bright laser beams, which flash red-red-green, are easily seen, even during daylight. The laser beams can be seen 15 to 20 miles (24 to 32 km) away. Other pilots are unlikely to see the lasers because, when activated, the directional beams are pointed at the aircraft that has crossed into restricted airspace. Multiple lasers could be activated. These lasers do not harm the eyes of aircrew or passengers.
"We're disappointed that the FAA and defense officials could not be persuaded to create a less-restrictive national security area for this final site," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "AOPA fought hard on this issue, working closely with Washington's representatives in Congress and managing to turn three other restricted areas into NSAs."
The new prohibited airspace will offer some relief to pilots who want to overfly the area. P-51 will cover the same footprint as the current temporary flight restriction (TFR) but will extend only to 2,500 feet msl, compared to the 4,900-foot ceiling now in place.
AOPA worked closely with Rep. Rick Larsen (D-2nd District), Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), and Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), to address the impact of TFRs imposed in the Puget Sound area following the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. Those advocacy efforts paid off when three other TFRs were turned into NSAs last December. Pilots are asked to voluntarily avoid flying through NSAs under normal circumstances, and notams can be issued to prohibit flight through a given NSA when necessary.
Right Whale Slow Zones and Dynamic Management Areas (DMAs) are voluntary programs NOAA Fisheries uses to notify vessel operators to slow down to avoid right whales. Maintaining speeds of 10 knots or less can help protect right whales from vessel collisions. Under these programs, NOAA Fisheries provides maps and coordinates to vessel operators indicating areas where right whales have been detected. For a period of 15 days after a whale is detected, mariners are encouraged to avoid these areas or reduce speeds to 10 knots or less while transiting through these areas.
NOAA Fisheries establishes DMAs based on visual sightings of three or more right whales within a discrete area. Right Whale Slow Zones are based on both visual and acoustic triggers. They are identical to DMAs when triggered by right whale visual sightings.
You can check for Right Whale Slow Zones on our online right whale sightings map. Or, you can download the free Whale Alert app, which will automatically notify you when you enter one of these areas. Learn more about the slow zones and DMAs declared last year.
For ships weighing 300 gross tons or more, a voluntary seasonal Area To Be Avoided (ATBA) is in effect each year from April 1 to July 31, when right whales face their highest risk of ship strikes in this area.
(2) To such a degree that an individual present in the area without respiratory protective equipment could exceed, during the hours an individual is present in a week, an intake of 0.6 percent of the annual limit on intake (ALI) or 12 DAC-hours.
Entrance or access point means any location through which an individual could gain access to radiation areas or to radioactive materials. This includes entry or exit portals of sufficient size to permit human entry, irrespective of their intended use.
High radiation area means an area, accessible to individuals, in which radiation levels from radiation sources external to the body could result in an individual receiving a dose equivalent in excess of 0.1 rem (1 mSv) in 1 hour at 30 centimeters from the radiation source or 30 centimeters from any surface that the radiation penetrates.
Monitoring (radiation monitoring, radiation protection monitoring) means the measurement of radiation levels, concentrations, surface area concentrations or quantities of radioactive material and the use of the results of these measurements to evaluate potential exposures and doses.
Radiation area means an area, accessible to individuals, in which radiation levels could result in an individual receiving a dose equivalent in excess of 0.005 rem (0.05 mSv) in 1 hour at 30 centimeters from the radiation source or from any surface that the radiation penetrates.
Restricted area means an area, access to which is limited by the licensee for the purpose of protecting individuals against undue risks from exposure to radiation and radioactive materials. Restricted area does not include areas used as residential quarters, but separate rooms in a residential building may be set apart as a restricted area.
Very high radiation area means an area, accessible to individuals, in which radiation levels from radiation sources external to the body could result in an individual receiving an absorbed dose in excess of 500 rads (5 grays) in 1 hour at 1 meter from a radiation source or 1 meter from any surface that the radiation penetrates.
(2) The dose in any unrestricted area from external sources, exclusive of the dose contributions from patients administered radioactive material and released in accordance with 35.75, does not exceed 0.002 rem (0.02 millisievert) in any one hour. 041b061a72
