Important notice regarding the 2014 Michigan Aeronautical Chart

The 2014 Michigan Aeronautical Chart contains the newly revised Detroit Class B airspace,  effective Thursday, April 3, 2014. 

The lateral dimensions of the Class B airspace are significantly expanded and the ceiling is raised from 8000 feet MSL to 10,000 feet MSL.

The Detroit Class B Airspace shown on the 2014 chart is based on information published in the Federal Register at the time of printing.  There are slight variations between how this is depicted on the Michigan Chart and how it is depicted on the FAA Detroit Sectional chart.

Pilots are urged to check current FAA publications, the Airport/Facility Directory, FAA sectional charts and NOTAMs for correct depiction of the Detroit Class B Airspace boundaries and elevations. 


1.  Airspace violations are determined on the basis of radar tracks (which are recorded by Air Traffic Control).  Information depicted on paper charts or on GPS units may not be correct.  Even though your GPS unit may show you outside the Class B doesn’t necessarily mean that is true.  

2.  Air Traffic Control personnel are required to report airspace violations to the FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO).

3.  FSDO personnel are required to follow enforcement procedures contained in FAA order 8900.1.
