high-density airspace control zone


high-density airspace control zone
Airspace designated in an airspace control plan or airspace control order, in which there is a concentrated employment of numerous and varied weapons and airspace users. A high-density airspace control zone has defined dimensions which usually coincide with geographical features or navigational aids.

The maneuver commander can also direct a more restrictive weapons status within the high-density airspace control zone. Also called HIDACZ.
