    Students of part 107 or pilots, which would be the right answer and why? I can't figure out yet.

    (Refer to figure ) The vertical limits of that portion of Class E airspace designated as a Federal Airway over Magee Airport are

    a 1,200 feet AGL to 10,000 feet MSL
    b 7,500 feet MSL to 12,500 feet MSL
    c 7,500 feet MSL to 17,999 feet MSL

    B

    class E Airspace
    The lower limits of Class E airspace extend to:

    • The earth's surface around airports marked by segmented (dashed) magenta (red) lines
    [​IMG]



    • 700 ft. AGL in areas marked by magenta shading
    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    • 1,200 ft. AGL for areas designated as federal airways and other areas marked by blue shading
      • However, in much of the contiguous U.S., the floor of Class E airspace is no higher than 1,200 ft. AGL anywhere.
        • Therefore, the blue shading is not shown.
        • In these areas, unless the floor of Class E airspace is indicated by chart symbols to be below 1,200 ft. AGL, it is understood that the floor of the Class E airspace is at 1,200 ft. AGL.
    Airways are also Class E airspace, and are depicted as light blue lines between VOR facilities and are labeled with the letter "V" followed by numbers, for example, V-120.
    Airways extend up to 17,999 ft. MSL and are 8 NM wide (4 NM on either side of the airway centerline).
    If none of the above apply, the floor of Class E airspace begins at 14,500 ft. MSL.

    Class e airspace around airways begins at either 700 or 1200 ft agl. So a.

    None of the above. It should be 1,200 to 17,999. :)

    Agreed, except that being magenta, shouldn't that be 700 - 17999?

    The question and its answers were taken from a real old FAA sport pilot test. Pls, can somebody shed a light on?

    The centerline of V194 and the airway it crosses at the east edge of the chart segment are both in Military Operating Areas (MOA's also colored magenta but with comb design). The floor of class E in that area is 1200 feet because it is outside the 700 foot agl floor of class E magenta gradient surrounding MaGee airport.
    Many of the test questions have 4 possible answers. I wonder it the OP failed to include the option of D: None of the Above.

    ?true most questions do have 4 answers.

    I agree with turbulence

    I vote that this question is probably not right. Best answer would be 1200-17999 or None of the above. (Where's the 4th option?)

    After reviewing the sample test questions, I see there are only 3 choices. I was wrong about 4 possible choices.
