What class of airspace are VFR corridors/ vfr transition routes?

Asked by: 3284 views , ,

For example, the Bravo airspace at KLAX. Does the VFR transition route/corridor remain class bravo with class bravo visibility and cloud clearance requirements or does it revert to class echo airspace with it's respective requirements?

    You probably need to be a bit more specific with what you are really asking.

    The VFR transition routes depicted on the LAX TAC (Coliseum, Hollywood Park, Coastal and Mini) are routes which are IN the Class B airspace and require a clearance.

    The Los Angeles Special Flight Rules area is the corridor THROUGH the Class B airspace and does not require a clearance.

    The transition routes would observe weather minimums for Class B airspace.

    The SFRA lists a restriction that the weather at LAX must be at least 3000′ and 3 miles.
