CHARTING NEWS

***LOS ANGELES***
TERMINAL AREA CHART

*** CHANGES FOUND ON Edition  68***   

The new edition of the Los Angeles Terminal
Area Chart became effective
December 12, 2013.

Here are some of the changes we found:

On the chart legend, check changes:

A QR code (quick response code), one of those
bar codes with black modules (square dots)
arranged in a square grid on a white
background, which can be read by an imaging
device such as a camera or smartphone.

On the navigation side of the chart,
check the changes:

1.  In the southwest corner of the navigation
side of the chart, the location of the warning
note, “NOAA REGULATED NATIONAL MARINE
SANCTUARY DESIGNATED AREAS, see http:
//sanctuaries.noaa.gov/flight” was adjusted for
clutter.  AOPA continues to be apposed to the
new overflight regulations that give the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration authority to enforce new
airspace restrictions.

2.  The Class D airspace around El Monte
(KEMT), which includes an arrival extension for
instrument approaches, has been rotated
about 40 degrees.  Nitnoid: The configuration of
each Class D airspace area is individually
tailored and when instrument procedures are
published, the airspace will normally be
designed to contain the procedures. Arrival
extensions for instrument approach
procedures may be Class D or Class E
airspace. As a general rule, if all extensions
are 2 miles or less, they remain part of the
Class D surface area. However, if any one
extension is greater than 2 miles, then all
extensions become Class E.

3. The airport beacon for March Air Reserve
Base (KRIV) has been relocated from north of
the threshold for Runway 14 to north of the
threshold for runway 12.  Note: the   white-
green (lighted land airport) airport beacon may
be either a rotating or flashing beacon and
operates continuously sunset to
sunrise.

On the flyways side:

1.  Changes #2 and  #3 made to navigation side
(above) were also incorporated on the flyways
side of chart.

2.  NOTE: Queens Gate VFR checkpoint flag,
erroneously relocated with revisions to Edition
66, has not yet been corrected.

Angeles Terminal Area Chart, please let us

Best this year in the dawn
sky around the end of
October, and in the
evening sky in late
January to early February
and again in mid-May.


The brilliant morning or
evening star starts 2014 in
the evening sky, but
moves to the morning sky
by mid-January, where it
remains through
summer. It returns to the
evening sky by year’s end
.

The Red Planet shines
brightest this year in
April, when it will briefly
rank as the fourth-
brightest object in the
night sky.

The largest planet in the
solar system, and the
brightest object in the
night sky after the Moon
and Venus. It shines at its
best in early January,
when it is brightest and is
in the sky all night.

Shines brightest this year
in May, as it moves
through Libra
Visible in early October;
requires very dark skies
and good eyes.


The fourth-largest planet
in the solar system is so
far away that you need a
telescope to find it.




Neptune stages its best
appearance in late
August.

Last October, the Space Shuttle
Endeavour made history as it
landed at Los Angeles
International Airport for the last
time.

After making its long,
complicated, and controversial
journey to Los Angeles, space
shuttle Endeavour's public
exhibition is now open.

The shuttle, which flew a total of
25 missions from 1992 to 2012,
is in a temporary housing at the
California Science Center,
where it will remain for about
five more years. At that time,
the shuttle will be relocated
into a new, permanent air and
space wing at the museum,
which will house the shuttle in
takeoff position with its twin
solid rocket boosters and
external tank attached.
