This is a Mendocino County Aeronautical Chart.
This chart shows the various airspace classes around the local airports in Ukiah, Willits, Ft Bragg, Little River, and Booneville.
Booneville - Class G (Gulf) airspace. There are no flight restrictions or authorizations required to fly in class G. Remote pilots must use caution within 5 miles of the airport and watch for manned aircraft.
Willits / Ft Bragg / Little River - Class E (Echo) airspace.
The soft magenta rings around these airports mean that the regulated airspace begins at 700 ft above ground level. (AGL)
Remote pilots may fly without restriction up to 400 ft AGL.
There are no flight restrictions or authorizations required to fly under 400ft AGL in Class E airspace. Remote pilots must use caution within 5 miles of the airport and watch for manned aircraft.
Ukiah - Class E-SFC (Echo to Surface) airspace. The magenta dashes surrounding the entire Ukiah Valley (Hopland to Willits) mean that the Class-E airspace restrictions extend all the way down to the surface.
Please Note: Any commercial flight inside this area requires pilots to hold a flight authorization from the FAA. (Recreational flights do not.)
TTSI LLC currently holds a FAA certificate of authorization to conduct commercial flight missions in the Ukiah Valley.
