Western expansion and LAX

Western expansion and LAX

Postby dancemad » Tue Sep 18, 2018 1:21 pm

Hey all,
Wanting to join back up and have a question regarding the logistics of a Western Expansion subscriber flying into LAX controlled areas/airports. Is it allowed?, or do I have to fly through and over the airspace if I am not a LAX subscriber?

Thanks,
Michael

I'm guessing by "LAX" you mean ZLA?

If only subscribe to WUS and not ZLA, you are permitted to overfly ZLA as many routes fly through the airspace (ie. PHX-SFO). However if you descend too low, you will be automatically disconnected.

Michael, if a Western US-only subscriber was able to fly into ZLA/LAX and land, then there would be no need for a WUS+ZLA combo subscription.

WUS-only subs can fly anywhere within WUS, and they have overflight rights (at 13K or above if memory serves, something along those lines) for ZLA for the purpose of transitioning through it as they go from one WUS airport to another, as Kevin pointed out.
