I just got done watching the news tonight. With the rapidly growing Rodeo fire having burned 150,000 acres in northeastern Arizona I would like to know what if any adjustments are made to flight paths, SIDs, STARs, etc when a major fire is burning.
The smoke plumes rise up pretty high, into the flight levels I imagine and spread out quite far. Plus I cannot begin to imagine the turbulance the fire could potentially create. So are adjustments made to avoid these areas, and is anything currently in effect for some of these large fires?
