If it weren't, the clearance you'd get would include some intermediate altitude restriction
, such as, "<location>.
I read Larry Anglisano's commentary about BasicMed's altitude restriction
in the April 2017 Aviation Consumer.
Read this report and get upset: upset that air traffic control set them up; upset that the pilots failed to realize a stabilized approach was impossible the moment the altitude restriction
was issued and that they forgot their stable approach rules.
It was observed that with these revisions, several helicopters which otherwise met all requirements but had been rejected due to the altitude restriction
, would now come into the reckoning.
Right up until the point where BOTH my flight lead and I complacently descended thru an altitude restriction
He climbed through the 9,000-foot altitude restriction
outside the target complex in an effort to attain the apex of his popup maneuver.
The main effect of altitude restriction
was marginal (restricted, unrestricted = 21.9, 23.8 s, respectively), F(1, 3) = 6.51, p [less than] .10.
They said Capt Ashby had violated the mission's 517mph speed limit and 2,000ft altitude restriction
Testing and development of UAVs has sometimes clashed with FAA concerns about operating UAVs in controlled airspace, most recently during tests of the Outrider UAV in Texas, where an FAA altitude restriction
caused the aircraft to lose its datalink due to horizon masking.
(In the event you're not issued an alternative clearance and do go around, I suggest climbing up to the altitude restriction
and contacting ATC as soon as possible.)
It was a pretty good bet that I was the reason for the altitude restriction
An altitude restriction
was issued because of PAR traffic at 2,000 feet.
