(8-2 Part 1) Class F Airspace
|Define Class F airspace||Class F airspace is airspace of defined dimensions within which activities must be confined because of their nature and (or) within which limitations may be imposed upon aircraft operations that are not a part of those activities.|
|What kind of airspace can Class F airspace be?||Class F airspace can be controlled airspace, uncontrolled airspace or a combination of both.|
|What happens to Class F airspace when it is inactive?||When areas of Class F airspace are inactive, they assume the rules of the appropriate surrounding airspace.|
Apply the appropriate separation minimum between an aircraft and the outer edge of Class F airspace within controlled airspace, except if the aircraft:
| A. States that it has obtained permission from the user agency to enter the area;|
B. Is operating on an ALTRV APVL; or
C. Has been cleared for contact or visual approach.
Vertical separation from an active Class F advisory airspace
|Apply 500 feet vertical separation from ana ctive Class F advisory airspace, unless wake turbulence minima is required, in which case apply 1,000 feet vertical separation.|
If vertical separation will not be applied....
|If vertical separation will not be applied, vector aircraft so as to ensure that the PPS will not penetrate a Class F advisory area displayed on the radar display.|
Separate aircraft vertically from a Class F advisory airspace....
|Separate aircraft vertically from a Class F advisory airspace prior to the PPS reaching the boundary of the area as displayed on the radar display, and until the PPS is clear of the area.|
If the radar source is a non-RSE radar.....
|If the radar source is a non-RSE radar, provide separation during any time that the target is less than 5 miles from Class F advisory airspace displayed on the radar map.|
A pilot wanting to fly through an advisory airspace (dickhead)
|If an aircraft operating in controlled airspace requests a clearance to penetrate an advisory area or fly closer to it than separation minima would permit without permission from the user agency, advise the aircraft that you are unable to provide an IFR clearance. If the aircraft insists on penetrating the advisory area or fly closer to it than separation minima would permit, issue an advisory.|
