Airspace Clarification question

8 posts in this topic

If I am within the fuzzy magenta boundary, the legend says it's class E airspace with a floor 700 feet above the surface.  Does that mean that if I am flying at 699 feet or below, within that same boundary, that I am in class G uncontrolled airspace?

My home is within the fuzzy magenta boundary, I would like to know for sure that I'm legal to fly without ATC approval if below 400 feet.

 

Thanks so much!!

That is correct. That is , of course, unless there are any NOTAMS, TFR's, or other advisories.

Thanks for the fast reply Ed!  That helps clarify my status and my understanding of the charts.

If you'd like to give me the airport in question, I'll take a quick peek.

Well, it happens that you are in Alert Area A-371.  As best as I can tell, you are OK to fly but must excercise extreme caution due to Ft Campbell activity. My advice would be to ctc your flight service station or 1-800-wxbrief.

Agreed.  Being only 15 miles from Fort Campbell and its aviation presence makes it super important to be extra vigilant.  Fortunately the Blackhawks and Chinooks fly well above 400 feet and are quite loud.
