Airspace Clarification question

Recommended Posts

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!!

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.

Good discussion of transition areas above.(fuzzy magenta).

Ed is right on re: Alert area A-371, continuous operations from ground to 2,000 ft. AGL. i'm guessing lots of Army helicopter traffic with some training. May be a good idea to have a VO watching your back....

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.
