Hello forum peeps,
So I had two questions on transion calls while being ATC. Was hoping some fellows herd could break down that wall between me and the answers.
When an Aircraft is calling in for a transition, do you clear them for 3,000 feet or 5,000 feet transition? I’ve heard it several times from people either way and I wanted to make sure I’m doing it right.
When clearing someone for a transition (we’ll use 3,000 feet as an example even if it’s incorrect) do you clear them for an AGL transition of 3,000 feet or MSL?
For example at KLAX a transition of 3,000 feet would be the AGL level while say in Denver the transition would be about 8000 feet. So do I transition for AGL or do I give them the altitude they”d need to be at in order to clear the airport?
