New Tower Airspace Boundary

July, 3, 2020 by

Tower’s airspace still extends from surface to 5000ft vertically, however the lateral boundary has changed because of the new airspace markings on Infinite Flight, it has changed to the most immediate ring/boundary surrounding the airport.

For example Before, Dallas Fort Worth tower used to extend 5nm laterally just in a perfect circle, but now tower’s airspace is inside this ring/boundary as its the most immediate one, which is depicted here. The highlighted area shows you what Tower’s airspace is now considered to be.
