Airspace for the Netherlands


These have come from a variety of different sources, and they are provided "as is". Prudent pilots will, of course, check these values with the contest organizers and - especially - continue to keep their eyes outside the cockpit.   Files to facilitate loading of GPS units and flight computers are also provided; however they have not all been uploaded to the respective manufacturer's hardware and verified.

Here are two nice disclaimers that I came across, and which certainly apply here:

Caveats aside, we hope that this collection will facilitate your flying, and invite you to send along any suggestions, corrections, and new data to John Leibacher ( john.leibacher.wstx@gmail.com ). Fly safely!

As a result gliding above FL 065 in EHAA FIR is not possible during both weekdays, weekends and legal holidays without mode S transponder.

    Be careful: Upper limit of Dutch Mil TMA B is always FL065, airspace above Dutch Mil TMA B is Amsterdam CTA East class A!

    If a transponder is carried it should also be activated outside TMZs.
