Class golf

Asked by: 1333 views Airspace, Flight Instructor

I sat in one of CFI candidates airspace lesson and he said that class golf goes up to 1400' out west in the mountains. Can't seem to find anything to back it up. Does anyone know where I can find info on this ?

    You meant to say 14,500 out west.

    Class G is all airspace that is not designated as controlled airspace, class A, B, C, D, and E. Class E airspace begins at 14,500 feet over the continental US if it is not specified at a lower altitude. So the highest G may be below 14,500 feet. See the AIM, section 3.2.6 (e)(7). All class E airspace below 14,500 is shown on the sectional charts. So an area that is G up to 14,500 will not have any E airspace charted. You can see an example in the airspace around Mount Shasta in California. There are other examples.
