Is there any way LNM can show ATZ (Aerodrome Traffic Zones) and MATZ (Military Aerodrome Traffic Zones) which would be useful when flying VFR.  I noticed what looks like a MATZ Zone around the airfield in Rob Ainscough video regarding AI problems.

Hi Glen,

can you show me an example? Screenshot? Maybe these zones are available on the Web as OpenAIR files.

I already take all what is available in the Navigraph database and compile it into LNM.

Do you have access to Plan-G, if you look at Blackbushe EGLK it has the standard 2 mile Radius ATZ and close by is a Military airfield Odiham EGVO with a MATZ with a 5 mile radius circle with an approach stub.  Airfields EGVP and EGDM also have MATZ airspaces.  Although not strictly required on Vatsim you should call the Military ATC and ask to cross this MATZ airspace, also its sometime required to tell ATC you are leaving the airfields ATZ.

Having these visible on LNM would make this much easier when fling VFR.

Frankly, I have no idea where to get these airspaces from. They are not part of the Navigraph database as far as I've seen.

I'll improve airspaces in the next major version 2.2. This should allow to load OpenAir and probably other formats and display them for all simulators.
