Title: Prohibition Against Certain Flights in the Territory and Airspace of Venezuela 
Abstract: On May 1, 2019, the FAA issued KICZ Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) A0013/19, prohibiting certain flight operations in the territory and airspace of Venezuela at altitudes below Flight Level (FL) 260 by 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 where the operator of such aircraft is a foreign air carrier, due to increasing political instability and tensions in Venezuela and the associated inadvertent risk to flight operations. This rulemaking will add a new Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) to incorporate the flight prohibition contained in KICZ NOTAM A0013/19 into the Code of Federal Regulations.
