Up until now, the only way a pilot could confirm whether special use airspace (SUA) such as military operations areas (MOA’s) etc. was to call flight service. However, recently the FAA has made that information available on its website. Now, a pilot can consult the FAA’s Special Use Airspace & Air Traffic Control Assigned Airspace Web Site to determine whether an SUA will be active during his or her anticipated flight. The website provides both a listing of the SUA’s as well as a graphical depiction of current and scheduled activity for SUA’s.
Although I still recommend that pilots call flight service before every flight to confirm Notams, temporary flight restrictions etc., this website will certainly aid pilots at the flight planning stage.
