As a follow-up to last week's story about two uncharted military operations areas (MOAs) in southeastern Indiana, the FAA has issued a circular to inform pilots. Download the document from AOPA Online. AOPA had pushed the FAA to properly notify general aviation pilots because of the potential safety issues. The two MOAs, JPG and Racer, lie to the west of Cincinnati's Class B airspace and will be located mostly within the area between Franklin Flying Field, Salem, Madison Municipal, and Greensburg-Decatur County airports. AOPA was concerned that military activity might begin before the MOAs are charted.
