Class D and E Airspace, Obstructions, and Military Operation Areas (MOAs)

In this video, we go over how to interpret sectional charts for Class D and E airspace, as well as cover some examples of questions that the FAA might as you regarding flying around obstructions (specifically, how to determine the height of the obstructions and how high you can fly above them).

If you'd like to follow along with your own file, we have attached a copy of the sectional chart we are using for this video. Remember, the sectional chart excerpts we use come straight from the FAA supplemental materials that you will be using on your exam, so you may recognize these charts on test day.


FAA Test Materials

If you don't already have a copy of the supplemental test materials, click the file below to download a copy. Its important that you become familiar with the charts in this file, as they are the EXACT charts you will see on test day. I would mainly focus on all of the sectional charts and maps (there is a lot of extra material in there that is only relevant for manned aircraft license exams).

Quiz Instructions

For the practice quiz below, you are going to either need to download the file for Figure 21 (above), or view the chart below the quiz box.
