Assigning Transition Altitudes

Hi everyone,

I have seen many posts regarding this, although have not been able to come to a final answer as every post has received different answers.

So my question is, when assigning a transition altitude is it:

  • 1000ft above the height of the pattern
    OR
  • Something regarding the airports airspaces (e.g. SFC -> 2500)?

Thanks,

-Alpha

Thanks for the answer. This can be closed now :)

Don’t forget to take into account your airport’s altitude. 🙂

Yep I looked at that thread, although it conflicted with other threads, so I was unsure, which is why I posted here :)
