No-fly zone

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A no-fly zone, also known as a no-flight zone (NFZ), or air exclusion zone (AEZ),[1] is a territory or area created by a military power over which specific aircraft are not allowed to fly. Such zones are usually created in an enemy power's territory during a conflict to stop air attacks.
