WHAT DOES AIRSPACE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Airspace

Airspace means the portion of the atmosphere controlled by a country above its territory, including its territorial waters or, more generally, any specific three-dimensional portion of the atmosphere. It is not the same as aerospace, which is the general term for Earth's atmosphere and the outer space in its vicinity. ▪ Controlled airspace exists where it is deemed necessary that air traffic control has some form of positive executive control over aircraft flying in that airspace (however, Air traffic control does not necessarily control traffic operating under visual flight rules (VFR) within this airspace). ▪ Uncontrolled airspace is airspace in which air traffic control does not exert any executive authority, although it may act in an advisory manner. Airspace may be further subdivided into a variety of areas and zones, including those where there are either restrictions on flying activities or complete prohibition of flying activities.

Definition of airspace in the English dictionary
