ENR 5.2 MILITARY EXERCISE AND TRAINING AREAS AND AIR DEFENCE IDENTIFICATION ZONE

1 Temporary segregated areas (TSA) and temporary reserved airspace (TRA)

Temporary Segregated Areas (TSA) and Temporary Reserved Airspace (TRA) are airspaces of predefined dimensions within which activities require the reservation of airspace for the use of specific users (mainly military) during a determined period of time.

1.1 Temporary Segregated Area (TSA)
Temporary Segregated Area is an airspace temporarily segregated and allocated for the exclusive use of a particular user during a determined period of time and through which other traffic will not be allowed to transit.
1.2 Temporary Reserved Airspace (TRA)
Temporary Reserved Airspace is an airspace temporarily reserved and allocated for the specific use of a particular user during a determined period of time and through which other traffic may be allowed to transit under air traffic control (ATC) clearance.
1.3 Fight Plan Buffer Zones (FBZ)
Since active TSAs cannot be crossed, Flight plan Buffer Zones (FBZ) have been established for pre-tactically bookable TSA-s to accommodate IFR flight planning. An FBZ will be activated only with the corresponding TSA. IFR flights should flightplan to avoid an active FBZ using the ATS route system or waypoints published in ENR 4.1 and 4.4 established for flight planning in Free Route Airspace. Flight plans can be filed up to the boundary of the FBZ when active.
1.4 Information about the activation of TSAs/TRAs
Information about the period and height which activities actually take place in TSAs/TRAs are notified via eAUP/eUUP.

Note: Graphical description of the areas listed in the table below is given on page ENR TRA.

2.3.3 Requirements and Restrictions During Low-level Flying
2.3.3.1 During low-level flight, aircraft navigation lights shall be turned on.
2.3.3.2 Only two pairs of aircraft are allowed into each low-level flying area simultaneously.
2.3.3.3 The use of chaff/flares is prohibited.
2.3.3.4 Aerodromes (listed in Estonian AIP AD 1.3) located inside an activated low-level flying area shall be avoided by 1 NM horizontally, unless a written agreement has been made with the airfield administration.
2.3.3.5 Aerial sporting and recreational activities areas (Estonian AIP ENR 5.5) will be avoided by 1 NM at all times.
2.3.3.6 During low-level flight flying should be avoided over the congested areas of settlements or over an assembly of persons at a height less than 300 m (1000 ft) above the highest obstacle within a radius of 600 m from the aircraft.

2.5 Communication

Tallinn Area Control Center (Tallinn ACC) or Tallinn Approach Control (Tallinn APP) are responsible for provision of the information for civil aircraft pilots during low-level flying activities, depending in who’s area of responsibility the flight takes place.
