CHARTING NEWS

***LOS ANGELES***
TERMINAL AREA CHART

*** Changes found on Edition  71 ***   

The new edition of the Los Angeles
Terminal Area Chart became effective
June 25, 2015.

Here are some of the changes we found
on the chart legend:

  • A symbol was added to go with
    the blue linear triangles for IFR
    Departure Route and IFR Arrival
    Route.  The new symbol for IFR
    Arrival/Departure Route uses
    blue triangles that alternate
    direction.






  • A symbol has been added for
    Space Launch Activity Area (See
    Airport/Facility Directory).









  • The legend has combined the
    symbols for Glider Operations,
    Hang Glider Activity, Ultralight
    Activity and Unmanned Aircraft
    Activity. Just fill in the blank.

Here are some of the changes we found
on the navigation side of the chart:

  • The 30 nm Mode C Veil around LAX
    appears to have been resurveyed.  
    It has been shifted about one-third
    of a mile south east.

  • Van Nuys VOR has been promoted
    to a VOR-DME.

  • The following note, inadvertently
    deleted in Edition 70, was restored
    between LAX and the western
    edge of the Class B airspace:
    “Caution: At or below 2000’ when
    operating along a line parallel to
    and one mile North along the 91
    freeway corridor from West where
    the extension of that line
    intersects the beach just South of
    Manhattan Beach pier, East along
    the 91 Freeway to Prado Dam and
    all areas North of this line in the LA
    Basin, pilots are encouraged to
    make regular position reports on
    123.025 when not in contact with
    ATC.”

  • Rialto airport is now charted with
    the closed airport symbol.

  • The three isogonic lines have
    been adjusted on the TAC chart
    have been adjusted one-half
    degree west. On Edition 70 the
    isogonic lines  ranged from 13
    degrees 0 minutes east in the
    northwest corner of the chart too
    12 degrees 30 minutes on the
    isogonic line that runs through Big
    Bear to south of Dana Point.  On
    Edition 71, the lines range from 12
    degrees 30 minutes to 12 degrees
    0 minutes, respectively.

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.
