Seattle Class B Graphic Safety Enhancement Released

December 21, 2011 – On December 15, FAA’s AeroNav Products released the Seattle Class B Graphic Safety Enhancement to coincide with the effective date of the redesigned Seattle Class B airspace. This safety enhancement to the Seattle VFR Sectional and Terminal Area Charts will aid pilots in gaining the necessary situational awareness within this new Class B airspace area.

Pilots get an “unobstructed” view of the Class B design without any underlying topographic features, including the primary airport, primary navaid, and ceilings and floors. The graphic shows useful reference points and data including:  

  • Geographic coordinates at each Class B boundary intersection 
  • Magnetic fix radial/DME to Seattle VORTAC
  • Distance of each straight-line Class B boundary segment 

Pilots flying in the Seattle area can download a copy of the graphic here.
