Default Restricted airspace in Google Earth

If you are interested in doing some flight planning via Google Earth while avoiding restricted airspace there's an Open Air file that GE recognizes.

Here's the direct link to the open air file you have to download.
Once you have downloaded it, open the file via Google Earth.

Here's the original URL if you'd like to explore further http://soaringweb.org/Airspace/

BTW, this is also where I pulled the info to upload all of the US restricted sites to my 6030. I tested it on my trip to Florida and it worked flawlessly.

And this guy seems to have a way of converting it to something that can be converted to something that Garmin can read ...

MOA is a military Operations Area. It's not required that you stay out, just highly recommended so you don't end up a greasy spot on the windshield of a F-16
