Help me find transition altitude

Recommended Posts

I think that the only place to find it are the aerodrome charts (SID/STAR pages). It can also be found in ATIS because it can be sometimes changed. Sometimes it says TA: By ATC in the charts. That means that ATC will tell you the altitude.

Thanks, Branimir, I know it's on the charts. I just wondered if this information is also on the flight plan somewhere.

No, this information does not belong in the flight plan.

It's like MSAs, MORAs etc. This is available on the AIP.

I understand. Thanks.

TA is a known published value.

It's the TL that will be notified by ATC since TL changes with ambient conditions and you need a buffer (transition layer) in order to separate QNH traffic from those flying with STD altimeter.
