VFR Altitude

Just FYI…VFR Flight Plan from KPHX to KABQ flew me into a mountain. It gave me an altitude of 7,000 ft. I would have thought FL10 as there are a couple of 8,000ft mountains enroute.

Happened again. TOC was F085 but there were some 13,000 ft mountains in the way.


This is a known limitation with low level VFR flights at the moment. The only workaround is to manually set a higher altitude when generating your flight.

You can also check the vertical profile map after generating your flight plan to identify any terrain clearance issues ahead of time.

I have made a note to try and improve this in the future.

Best regards,
