I believe airspace above FL660 is now class E airspace and is technically still controlled. - JoelKatz

I thought so but I found http://www.eurocontrol.int/asm-nav/Airspace-Table-GL-to-660-post-OI-1A-v2.pdf which shows FL660 as the limit of controlled airspace in many countries. But the US is not listed and this article seems to limit itself to US conventions. David Brooks 06:37, 29 Jan 2005 (UTC)
But 14 CFR 71.71 says that class E exists in all airspace above FL600.

Class G doesn't exist above class E in the USA[edit]

I think that everything after "All airspace above a certain..." in the first paragraph should be removed. The United States does not have uncontrolled airspace above controlled airspace so the blanket statement that all countries do this is wrong and the example of FL660 in the United States is obviously wrong.

The FARs say "Class E Airspace consists of: ... the airspace above FL600" (with a few exceptions in Alaska and other places). This is also in the AIM.

I'll change it for now as this appears correct to me; anyone else have any input? —Cleared as filed. 02:16, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Major changes[edit]

I've done some pretty drastic surgery to this page as it seemed to be getting out of hand and branching off into a variety of merely semi-related areas: this IMHO has caused the rewrite-context tag to be added.

I think the new version is more punchy, is internationalised and yet has a better context for non aviation folks. If you don't like it, feel free to rv.BaseTurnComplete 10:28, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
