    Notes:
    1.    For this area approval, the TRA is a cylinder not expected to be more than 7nm radius
    2.    On the weekend, the required cylinder overlaps with R639C AMBERLEY AIRSPACE, however there are no planned launches that would enter R639C
    3.    For the TRA weekdays and the TDA overall we will not be entering R639 AMBERLEY AIRSPACE (Buffer of 2.5 NM from R639C Boundary)
    4.    For this area approval, the TDA is a cylinder not more than 3NM radius
    5.    Should any times potentially conflict with your activities, please let us know so we can work around these.
