Beginning June 28 2012, LAX Class D airspace is activated north and south of LAX airport. This Class D airspace is adjacent to LAX Class B airspace and SMO Class D airspace. South of LAX, the Class D is adjacent to HHR class D airspace. Due to the close proximity of these multiple regulated airspaces, pilots are urged to use caution and contact the proper control tower to gain access to the requested airspace.

Pilots are reminded to remain clear of LAX Class B at all times unless given specific clearance by LAX tower to enter. You must hear the transmission; “cleared into/thru/out of” Class B airspace prior to entering, if unsure, verify your clearance with the controller prior to entering the airspace.

To gain entry into LAX Class D or Class B, contact LAX tower on frequency 119.8 to establish communications. Pilots should be familiar with Class D and Class B airspace by referring to local navigational charts. Also, pilots should refer to the A.I.M. for information dealing with the above mentioned airspace.
