Hi!

Just wanted to confirm - UK IGN chart shows French Class E south of RINTI at FL65-FL115 and Class D at FL115+, and SD does not show this.
What is correct?
Thanks!

Regards,
Alex.

SkyDemon features the class D airspace but it's country-wide, so we don't show it on the main map. You can see it in Virtual Radar if you plan at that level. I can't see any evidence that class E airspace exists at that point.

Thanks!

I don't do private messages on here, sorry. Unless it's an official French chart it isn't likely we'd be able to do anything with it.

It's Official UK CAA chart - it shows Class E in France. And French chart don't show Class E as I think they are considering it IFR airspace?

Sorry I thought you said it was an IGN chart. You're referring to the NATS-produced 1:500,000 UK South chart?

Sorry, correct - standard half-mil, paper one.

Thanks. I can't comment on why that chart might show class E there but I'll ask NATS. If I recall correctly, they do state somewhere on the chart that its depiction of French airspace shouldn't be considered accurate, so that is a possibility.

There is some AIP which (allegedly) specifies that airspace, plus the rule that all airways  below FL115 are Class E.
I'll come back later on that.

I couldn't find anything in the AIP explicitly defining any class E at that point. However if all airways are considered class E implicitly, then we wouldn't show that in SkyDemon.
