MaxSez: Early IF Charts contained subject data prominently displayed in the charts upper right hand corner. The Data simplified flight planning. Presently the parameters for restricted airspace are not publicly posted. I’ve had transition heights granted at 10,000 for my Super D on the EX Server and sent Guard Msg when I’v overflown a “B” above 100AGL. Accordingly, it is suggested that subject parameters again be posted and displayed prominently on the IF Chart so all concerned understand and comply with imposed FAR/AIM or IF established limits/restrictions.
I agree. When flying VFR it would be really handy to have as a reference.
Our VFR pilots are lacking
It’s coming be patient :) I have a feeling the new aerodome’s are going to be a great thing.
It was simplified to 5000ft inner ring only. Outside of that, don’t need to request transition although I personally would still appreciate it if approach isn’t online so I know you aren’t coming in for a steep descent to land. Unfortunately I’ve still had some request transition over 10000 ft or over 20nm away which isn’t necessary.
MaxSez: this Post is not limited to. GA/ VFR Pilots. Heavy junk also Fly’s VFR, runway in sight, , a Devirt, a Missed, Enroute etc. Restricted Airspace top’s and floors, Pattern Heights Ect. Should be clearly defined. There is plenty of room in the Chart Airfield ID link to publish this data and an airport Diagram.
@AR_AR… Simplified! You jest, wondered way I kept getting a standard 050AGL transition across the IF universe. If 5000’ was published it must have been in the IF ATC SOP only. A search of the archive on this subject met with no joy. Ever try to get a D/172/Spit etc to 5 grand when you launch from a satellite field inside a B’s rings for a Transition, you wind up in a vertical spiral or lugging, with the D igt takes 4 minute if you don’t stall and have to restart the clime after recovery. The “Floor” in my experience for GA in and around a “B” w/o VFR Corridors (except in the mountains) is Top 030AGL.
5000’ needs to be reconsidered. Topic to follow soon. Regards
This is where it’s been posted here not in app though.
@Brandon_Sandstrom. Got it Bran, You must know the IFATC Secret Code/hand shake/Pin to remain currant! Wonder if the term NOTAM is in the IF insider vocabulary!
This is why posting some tutorials and announcements here and there on the forum cannot be treated as enforceable rules. Really do need some place (accessible in-app) that wraps all of the IF regulations up into a tidy spot.
@Maxmustang you can expect 2500-3000ft transition thru my airspace any time.
@AR_AR. MaxSez. Well Said Sir! I’ll take you up on the 25/30 Pass as a promise. Warm Regards
It is indeed in the vocabulary but unfortunately NOTAM’s are completely ignored by the vast majority even when the TFR or NOTAM is displayed on the map.
I’ll go one further and say you nailed in on the head with a training system for pilots like IFATC has. But indeed an in app solution needs to be found. With the recent TFR’s and airfield data change I expect big things to come.
What are you referencing? I haven’t noticed anything different myself. Maybe I’m blind.
Your not blind. The airfield change I’m referring to is the change in how we access airfield information currently. Frequency’s, weather, and runways. Which only came out this year. With that implementation came TFR’s and the ability to input NOTAM’s for the aerodome. Which could also open up the possibilities for taxiway diagrams, or charts later on. We all need to remember baby steps. Too much to quick could loose valued customers.
@Brandon_Sandstrom. MaxSez: interesting… Seem’s I saw the noted changes before over the years. Hope your not still smoking that loco weed cowboy. Fingers crossed.
We need global out to appease the masses. They already have their trash-hauling sky-boats so I am not sure what else they would demand. After global map is released, I am hoping many detailed refinements are made to nav and comm systems.
Ah, that makes much more sense. Yes, it does open up a lot of interesting possibilities.
class b airspace is usually extends 30nm from the primary airport all the way from the surface to 10000 agl. right at the airport. usually the outer ring of class b airspace Is from 5000 to 10000 feet then 3000 to 10000 in the second ring then right at the airport surface to 10000 feet AGL
