Add a 200 ' allowance for uncharted natural or manmade obstacles.
Since turns at or after fix passage may exceed airway and route boundaries, pilots are expected to adhere to airway and route protected airspace by leading turns early before a fix. Hundreds of color images throughout the book are paired with easy-to-understand explanations and definitions. Low Altitude Charts have a minimum hard surface runway of 3000 '. Delimiting line not shown when it coincides with International Boundary, projection lines or other linear features. This concise guide allows pilots and students to successfully pre-plan flight paths through any type of environment from man-made obstacles to natural terrain. On Sectionals, basic contours are spaced at 500 ' intervals. Normally at least 3000 ' paved.
Runway Lights Notes regarding approach lighting systems are shown at the bottom of the sketch box. Exceptionally large lakes like the Great Lakes, Great Salt Lake, and Lake Okeechobee, etc. The highest elevation on an Area Chart is shown with a larger spot and text. Delimiting line not shown when it coincides with International Boundary, projection lines or other linear features.

Magnetic reference courses are not shown. It is useful to new pilots as a learning aid, and to experienced pilots as a quick reference guide. Runway Declared Distance Information Runway declared distance information when available will be indicated by and is shown to the right of the airport elevation in the sketch box. A small black circle with descriptive type indicates water, oil or gas tanks. Other runway features that may be shown are runway numbers, runway dimensions, runway slope, arresting gear, and displaced threshold. The procedure turn will be shown in the planview and in the profile of the chart.
Arrows are shown to indicate the direction of flight along the route.

The following runway compositions materials constitute a hard-surfaced runway: asphalt, bitumen, chip seal, concrete, and tar macadam. The scale for some items may be increased to make them easier to read on the chart. It is distributed to aviation and ground personnel, and is typically a standard evasion and escape kit item. Airport Diagrams are not intended for use in approach and landing or departure operations. A profile view of the procedure track is shown. These elements, along with the direction of the turns, define the holding pattern. Any obstacle which penetrates a slope of 67:1 emanating from any point along the centerline of any runway shall be considered for charting within the area shown to scale.
Note: Star when used in the Comm Frequencies indicates part-time status. Hundreds of color images throughout the book are paired with easy-to-understand explanations and definitions.
