Practice Question: (Refer to Figure 26) What airspace is Tomlinson airport in?

(Refer to Figure 26) What airspace is Tomlinson airport in?
A) Class G airspace — surface up to but not including 400 feet AGL; Class E airspace — 1,200 feet AGL up to but not including 18,000 feet MSL.
B) Class G airspace — surface up to but not including 1,200 feet AGL; Class E airspace — 1,200 feet AGL up to but not including 18,000 feet MSL.
C) Class G airspace — surface up to but not including 14,500 feet MSL.

The answer to this question is B.

Yes, Tomlinson sits in Restricted Area R-5401, but don’t let that throw you off. Remember that sometimes, Restricted Areas don’t start until thousands of feet above the surface. Recall that you can check the border of the Sectional Chart for more information about restricted and other Special Use airspace areas.

Tomlinson Airport

Tomlinson airport also sits in Class G airspace. The thing to remember in this question is that while the airport sits in Class G airspace, how high does that Class G airspace go up to? Where does it turn into Class E airspace? Remember that unless it is marked otherwise, Class E airspace usually starts at 1,200 ft. AGL.
