  1. 1. Airspace<br />Groups B/D: First Year<br />
  2. 2. Essential Questions<br />What is airspace and why is it used?<br />What classes of airspace are there?<br />What are special use airspaces?<br />
  3. 3. Airspace Classification<br />
  4. 4. Part I. Controlled Airspace<br />Class A<br />Class B<br />Class C<br />Class D<br />Class E<br />
  5. 5. Class A Airspace<br />Floor: 18,000 MSL<br />Ceiling: FL 600<br />All operations IFR<br />
  6. 6. Class B Airspace<br />Hartsfield<br />Floor: surface<br />Ceiling: 10,000 MSL<br />Floor/ceiling can be modified to accommodate each airport<br />Up-side down wedding cake<br />ATC clearance required<br />
  7. 7. Class C Airspace<br />Charlotte<br />Floor: surface<br />Ceiling: 4,000 AGL<br />Floor/ceiling can be modified to accommodate each airport<br />Charted in MSL<br />Two-way comms with ATC required<br />
  8. 8. Class D Airspace<br />PDK<br />Floor: surface<br />Ceiling: 2,500 AGL<br />Floor/ceiling can be modified to accommodate each airport<br />Charted in MSL<br />Two-way comms with ATC required<br />
  9. 9. Class E Airspace<br />Fills in space between other airspaces<br />Can begin at surface or at a designated altitude (i.e. 700 AGL or 1,200 AGL)<br />
  10. 10. Part II. Uncontrolled Airspace<br />Class G<br />
  11. 11. Class G Airspace<br />Floor: surface<br />Ceiling: overlying class E airspace<br />Uncontrolled means pilots communicate with each other via CTAF<br />
  12. 12. Part III. Special Use Airspace<br />Prohibited areas<br />Restricted areas<br />Military operation areas (MOA)<br />Alert areas<br />
  13. 13. Prohibited Areas<br />Aircraft are prohibited to fly through this area<br />Areas such as White House, Capitol, etc.<br />Charted with a “P” and a number (i.e. P-49)<br />
  14. 14.
  15. 15. Restricted Areas<br />Area is subject to restrictions and may be dangerous to non-participating aircraft<br />Artillery firing, aerial gunnery, guided missiles, etc.<br />ATC will either clear you through or guide you around based on active/inactive<br />Charted with an “R” followed by a number (i.e. R4401)<br />
  16. 16.
  17. 17. MOAs<br />Designated to separate IFR traffic from military training<br />May only fly through active MOA as long as ATC allows it, otherwise ATC will guide around it<br />MOAs are named (i.e. “Camden Ridge MOA”)<br />
  18. 18.
  19. 19. Alert Areas<br />High volume of pilot training or unusual-type training<br />Exercise caution<br />Charted as “A” with number (i.e. A-211)<br />
  20. 20. Part IV. Other Airspace Areas<br />Temporary flight restriction (TFR)<br />
  21. 21. TFR<br />NOTAM that temporarily restricts flight over an area<br />Used when the president visits<br />Has location and effective time period<br />
  22. 22.
  23. 23.
  24. 24. Quiz Time!!!<br />Name all the controlled airspace classes.<br />Class A<br />Class B<br />Class C<br />Class D<br />Class E<br />
  25. 25. Quiz Time!!!<br />What is the floor and ceiling of a class D airspace?<br />Floor: surface<br />Ceiling: 2,500 AGL<br />
  26. 26. Quiz Time!!!<br />Are you allowed to fly a VFR flight inside class A airspace? Why or why not?<br />No. Class A airspace only allows IFR flights to operate within it.<br />
  27. 27. Quiz Time!!!<br />What is a TFR and how is it received?<br />TFR stands for temporary flight restriction and temporarily restricts a certain amount of airspace from any flights. A TFR can be received through a NOTAM.<br />
  28. 28. Questions?<br /><br /><br />
