Question About Altitudes On France VFR Charts

Thu May 18, 2006 10:36 pm

I've been looking at some France VFR charts I bought a while ago, and I noticed that some of the altitude boundaries for airspaces are written with no firm upper limit, just a plus. For example:


It's pretty clear that 3000MSL is where the lower boundary of the airspace begins, but how does one determine the top? The legend says that this marking would mean from 3000 to above 5000MSL or 2000AGL, but it doesn't say anything about what the upper limit actually is. So how does one know?

7 billion, one nation, imagination...it's a beautiful day

check whether you are looking at certain levels of chart. In Europe I believe that low and high level charts are done, therefore they have boundaries which change over to a high level chart, indicating that a VFR chart will only take you up to base of the high level chart.
