    - lower and upper levels of TSA should be ordered in accordance with AIP Poland part one,
    - TSA segments can be ordered together in one line, e.g.: TSA8ABC, if flight levels and time of activity in these TSAs are the same.
    - altitudes which are below FL080 should be ordered in hundreds of feets.

    MATZ,ATZ,TFR, MRT,EA,SRZ but only those which are published in AIP Poland or by NOTAM.

B. Questions and answers referred to AUP

  1. What does ALPHA section contain and what is the connection with flight planning?
    Chapter ALPHA contains a list of available CDRs 2. They can be used in flight plans when the flight is conducted in accordance with GAT rules. CDRs 1 are available every weekend from Friday 20:00 UTC until Monday 06:00 UTC in accordance with AIP Poland. They are not published in AUP. Similar situation is a day before and during state holidays.

  2. What does BRAVO section contain?
    BRAVO section contains a list of closed ATS routes and CDRs1. These routes are closed for the period of air shows, military exercises, glider competitions etc. Those events are published in AIP Suplements or NOTAMs. They are also closed because of activity of flexible structures of airspace e. g.: TSA, TRA, D typeTSA.

  3. What does CHARLIE section contain?
    CHARLIE section contains a list of TSAs, TRAs, D type TSAs, R and D areas. The list of approved TSAs and D areas can differ from RQA message, which was sent to AMC (ASM2) as a result of co-ordination process with other users requests. D areas marked as EPD plus 2 stands for military training areas (usually shooting) while EPD plus 2 digits stands for TSAs located beyond territorial waters.

  4. What does DELTA section contain?
    Section DELTA contains a list of reduced airspace restrictions (currently not used).

  5. What does ECHO section contain?
    Section ECHO contains a list of RCAs (Reduced Coordination Areas), designated by AMC to reduce coordination between GAT and OAT controllers (available in AIP Poland).

  6. What does FOXTROT section contain?
    Section FOXTROT contains additional information concerning planned time of activation of MATZ, ATZ, TFR, MRT, EA, if a period of time differs from the published in AIP Poland e.g. MATZ-EPMM.

C. Questions and answers referred to UUP

  1. What is an UUP message and when is published?
    Updated Airspace Use Plan introduces changes to the published AUP. AMC (ASM2 or ASM3) informs the adequate ATS units on any changes to published AUP by telephone or fax. The UUP has the same format as AUP. All changes must be placed in the same section and under the same reference number. When the reservation for an airspace element published in AUP has been cancelled; reference number for that element and its name will be repeated in the UUP message and word "deleted" will be inserted into the column "REMARKS".

    UUP cannot introduce additional restrictions in G-class airspace.

  2. What is real time AUP/UUP execution?
    The flights shall be performed in accordance with AUP/UUP. The users of the airspace elements, which are not in collision with controlled airspace only confirm their usage 30 minutes before its real time activation. TSAs, TFRs and MRTs colliding with controlled airspace (look column remarks: "KLZ") must be coordinated with AMC (ASM3) on the day of operation 1 hour before planned activation of an element and receive clearance.
