Traffic pattern altitude

Bernard Q 3 years ago updated by Eric.Rush (Project Lead) 3 years ago 1

Traffic pattern altitude used to be displayed on the kneeboard format and no longer is.

That is very useful information, we need it back!

The traffic pattern altitude was not removed from the Kneeboard format. I just checked a few airports and the TPA is showing up on the kneeboard. Can you give me an example of an airport where you don't see a TPA on the Kneeboard?


I do know that the FAA does not provide TPA data for a lot of airports anymore since they now favor 1,000' AGL unless otherwise noted. So it may be that the the FAA is not reporting TPA any more for some of the airports you have been looking at.
