Aerobatic Box

Please Note:

All pilots please be aware that there is an official aerobatic box immediately to the west of the Kitty Hawk runway.

The box limits are from ground to 7500′ and up to FL090 on occasion.

The aerobatic box can be active at any time but particularly on a Saturday afternoon. All aircraft using the box will be on 120.65

The recommended procedure therefore is to join overhead but to the east and keep all circuit patterns to the east.

Further details are available in the AIP ENR 5.5 Subpart 7 on the CAA website.
