Title: ●Prohibition Against Certain Flights in the Baghdad Flight Information Region (FIR) (ORBB) 
Abstract: The FAA has initiated a rulemaking action to support the agency's evaluation of whether circumstances warrant the extension or amendment of the prohibition against certain U.S. flight operations in the Baghdad Flight Information Region (FIR) (ORBB) at altitudes below Flight Level 320 (FL320), or whether the agency should allow the rule to expire as scheduled. The flight prohibition applies to all: U.S. air carriers; U.S. commercial operators; persons exercising the privileges of an airman certificate issued by the FAA, except when such persons are operating U.S.-registered aircraft for a foreign air carrier; and operators of U.S.-registered civil aircraft, except when the operator of such aircraft is a foreign air carrier. The FAA is assessing if an extension of the flight prohibition will be necessary to address continuing hazards to persons and aircraft engaged in flight operations subject to the rule. The agency will also consider whether modifications to the parameters of the flight prohibition, if extended, would be appropriate at this time, based on the risks to the safety of U.S. civil aviation, or whether the agency should allow the rule to expire as scheduled.
