Pilots flying in southern New Mexico will have access to some military airspace in the White Sands Missile Range and Fort Bliss areas. The Army has decided that it isn’t effectively using some of the special-use airspace in the area and will replace part of Restricted Area 5107A with R-5107K. Effective Sept. 25, R-5107K will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. local, Monday through Friday, and could be activated at other times by notam. “R-5107A had been in effect continuously, so replacing it with this new restricted area that is time limited will help GA traffic transiting the area, especially along U.S. Route 54,” said Pete Lehmann, AOPA director of air traffic services. “AOPA will be asking the Army to consider reconfiguring R-5107C to eliminate a tight corridor in that area as well.”
