List of Class C airports in the United States

Class C is a class of airspace in the United States which follows International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) air space designation. Class C airspace areas are designed to improve aviation safety by reducing the risk of mid-air collisions in the terminal area and enhance the management of air traffic operations therein.[1] Aircraft operating in these airspace areas are subject to certain operating rules and equipment requirements.[1]

Class C airspace protects the approach and departure paths from aircraft not under air traffic control. All aircraft inside Class C airspace are subject to air traffic control. Traffic operating under VFR must be in communication with a controller before entering the airspace. The airspace is similar to Class B's "upside-down wedding cake", but much smaller and simpler. The innermost ring typically extends from the surface area around the airport to 4,000 feet (1,220 m) AGL (above ground level), with a radius of 5 nautical miles (9 km); and an outer ring typically surrounds the inner ring and extends from a floor at 1,200 feet (370 m) AGL, to the ceiling at 4,000 feet (1,220 m) AGL, with a radius of 10 nautical miles (19 km); these dimensions are sometimes highly customized when deemed necessary by taking into account surrounding airspace design (e.g. presence of nearby Class B).

As of August 2017, there are 122 Class C airports in the United States (counting NAS Whiting Field as 2 different airports).[2][3][4]
