OK, so we all know the cloud clearance and visibility requirements for classes of airspace (A, B, C, D, E, and G). But do these requirements apply in restricted areas? If I am in a restricted area at 1500' I would be in Class E (if the restricted area was not taken into account), so do I apply the Class E cloud clearance and visibility requirements?
The AIM states that "There are two categories of airspace or airspace areas: Regulatory (Class A, B, C, D and E airspace areas and restricted or prohibited areas); and Nonregulatory (military operations areas (MOAs), warning areas, alert areas, and controlled firing areas)."
"Within these two categories, there are four types: Controlled, Uncontrolled, Special use, and Other airspace."
So, the AIM categorizes the classes (A, B, C, D, E, and G) differently than the restricted or prohibited area. AR 95-1 and FAR 91.155 list the basic VFR weather minimums for only the classes.
Back to being at 1500' in a restricted area. If I am at 1500' in a restricted area (and I don't have any SOP/briefing restrictions), I should be able to operate with less than 500' cloud clearance and less than 3 miles of visibility legally. I would assume that the only requirements I have would be set forth by the rules governing that restricted area. For example, R3002 around Fort Benning is covered by the Fort Benning 95-1. Is this a correct assumption?
