Why Planes Don't Fly Over Antarctica

  • Published on Sep 7, 2019
  • Have you ever wondered if there are things an airplane simply can’t or won’t do? It turns out that airplanes have strict rules regarding their pathways in the sky - for safety reasons, and for the sake of staying friendly with continental neighbors. Some of the places they’re not allowed to fly over might surprise you!
    For example, planes won’t fly directly over the Earth’s poles and over the Pacific Ocean. You can't see planes over Tibet and over the City of Mecca. The airspace over Walt Disney World and Disneyland is also a no-fly zone. The same applies to Area 51 but we don't know why.

    - Due to the windy and snowy conditions of the Antarctic mountains, this area is more prone to white-outs; the pilot wouldn’t be able to see at all!
    - The Earth’s north pole has super strong magnetic fields that are constantly changing - their reach and direction can change by miles a year!
    - Planes won’t fly over Tibet. This is largely due to the Himalayan Mountains. First of all, if a plane has to land in an emergency situation, mountains aren’t exactly the ideal impromptu runway.
    - There’s a strong magnetic field in Makkah. As mentioned earlier, a magnetic field can cause navigational problems for pilots.
    - George Washington’s House is considered a National Historic Landmark, so to prevent further damage to the historic home, even from air vibrations in the sky, the airspace above George and Martha’s house was declared a no-fly zone.
    - In 2003, the Disney Corporation put “temporary” no-fly zones over both their parks, but somehow, they just stuck.
    - Due to the many presidents and world-wide VIPs that visit Camp David, the airspace above the whole compound is a no-fly zone for safety reasons.
    - Kennedy Space Center in Florida is a no-fly zone. There’s a lot of NASA and U.S. Airforce activity that goes on here - pretty important work. So safety for all parties is the top priority.
    - Buckingham Palace is meant to protect the Queen and the royal family, so of course a no-fly zone was established above it.
    - The Indian government place a no-fly zone above the area of the Taj Mahal in 2006 to safeguard this important historical building and the many tourists who come to witness its majesty.

    How is flying over antaricica any different than a north pole route? Antarctica doesnt get hardly any snow either, the reason planes dont fly over antarctica is because most planes are flying beween locations in the northern hemisphere therefore it makes no sense to use it... u cant use an ocean or the north pole as a good emergency landing either...

    The White House! The Capital Building!

    Let me guess some others:

    the Kremlin
    the Forbidden City of Beijing
    10 Downing Street (residence of the British Prime Minister)
    Vatican City
    the Dome of the Rock
    Pyramids and the Sphinx
    the Parthenon

    Having taken many commercial flights between San Francisco and Dallas, the Grand Canyon is apparently fair game.

    Planes do fly over the Pacific ocean. There's a regular flight from Chile to Australia and others that fly from the US to Asia and Australia 🙄
    I enjoy your videos but do some research before on the facts you are not sure about.
    The majority of places planes cant fly over certain places is due to safety international regulations and others due to safety regulations that were modified or created after 9/11

    Planes do fly when it’s hot. I’m visiting Adelaide and it hit 47 degrees Celsius over the last few days and there were planes taking off and landing at the local airport. Maybe it’s an American thing but here in Oz they fly no matter the heat. Or maybe it’s just that the Ozzie’s are harder than the yanks I guess.
