Question about Airport Elevation

Hi everyone!

This might be a silly question but I was wondering if there was a way to check the elevation of the airport you’re controlling as a tower controller. I know you can check what altitude an aircraft sitting on the taxiway is at to get an idea but is there a way to check if there’s no planes in your airspace?

Thanks in advance!

Hey there!

If you click on the airport icon, highlighted in red within the below image, the airport elevation, highlighted in yellow, will be showcased in the black tab as seen:

For example, VNLK has an elevation of 9100ft as shown above.


Thank you!
