Why Planes Don't Fly Over Antarctica

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.

@Hiam Koujan Don't thank the channel. They produced a video with misleading facts. In fact, little to none of what you heard in the video is true at all. Sure they put effort into it, but it was effort made to mislead people and get a bunch of shameless clicks.

@MrShakhu1 It's not entirely that he doesn't like the type of content, it's the fact that he was misled. The video title and tone implies that everything you hear is 100% true, but most of the facts in this video are false.

As a "normal" non-pilot or non-professor-level person I can't comment about the most of these things. But George Washington's house: air vibrations from a plane several kilometers above would be harmful for the house? Just give me a brake... If that is a no fly zone that is simply not the reason!

QANTAS flys sightseeing flights over Antarctica every summer, as well as the US Airforce does resupply drops all the time. And I've been flying across the Pacific Ocean since the 70's from Sydney to LA often with stops in New Zealand and Hawaii.

False information. Airplanes can’t fly in Antartida because there is an accord between many nations that control that region. The other reason is that the Earth is not a globe and all governments want to hide that information to keep controlling humanity.

The main reason planes get grounded in hot weather in Phoenix: US airlines don't pay aircraft manufacturers for the performance data in hot weather. Ask Emirates how many times hot weather shuts down their operations in Dubai!

Hello bright side, I think your channel is becoming less bright.. Because a lot of the facts are wrong🤔

Actually you can’t fly over any building that houses a countries leader. Which brings me my next question. Why was Buckingham palace and camp David included and not the White House? As for Disneyland and dinseyworld, it’s small air planes that can’t fly over it not commercial planes. This is also the case with most large amusement parks. And finally, this video was incorrectly named and only pointed a handful of places you can’t fly over. Poorly done

Of course, planes fly over Antartica! The South Pole base is supplied via airplanes that fly in! Talk about being wrong!!
What is the temperature in Antarctica?
The question is why airplanes can’t fly over the Bermuda Triangle?

Wrong! Runways are named according to how close they are aligned to magnetic North, not true North. Also, magnetic North is not located at the North pole, which invalidates the answer why they won't fly over the North pole. Commercial airliners are not 100% dependent on an accurate magnetic compass. Their primary compass is gyroscopic. The magnetic compass only serves as a backup. They use chart software to determine what their course over ground needs to be. Whoever provided this information is very wrong.
