The airspace in
The airspace above Germany is arranged
into an upper and a lower airspace. Mostly they are divided at
FL245, in some control centers partially significantly higher (up to
FL315). For air traffic, sectorisation is just of such importance as
Turboprop airplanes usually operate during cruiseflight in the lower
(-FL245) and Jet airplanes operate in the upper airspace (FL245+)
The lower airspace in the vicinity of an
aerodrome is usually controlled by approach control. The area of
responsibility of such an approach sector starts normally on the
ground and reaches an upper limit of FL115 up to FL195.
Only the first minutes of a flight are
controlled by an ATC-Tower. This controls the airspace from ground up
to about 3000-4000 feet above ground vertically and about 10-15nm
around the aerodrome horizontally.
Germany Radar offers you control of
approach sectors, as well as enroute sectors in the lower and upper
airspace above Germany. An overview map may be opened by clicking on
