    Can somebody tell me on the VFR or charts where it tells the airspace class. I know it is there, just not sure where. Thanks.

    Airspace classes are 3D volumes. They are shown in sectional charts, but only in 2D. This makes them a bit confusing to understand at first.

    You asked where on a chart does it tell what an airspace is. This is done by outlining particular airspaces using a specific color-coding. The outlines are made up of a combination of either magenta, cyan, or gray, and they are either solid, dashed, or shaded. Ideally you should memorize this, but as a last resort you can look them up in the charts's legend.

    Completely forgot about the color coding, and that was part of my studies. Thanks for reminding me.
