Normal Flying 0-7500 feet MSL_= 4700 above ground level

Call in windows should be available to 15,200 ft. AGL but will be dependent on Tracon. We are working with Tracon to have minimum impact on flying. We won't get clearance if strong winds from the North changes the landing pattern. When we do get a window we need to be ready and use it then release it back to 4700 AGL

Night flying 0-4700 ft AGL Above ground level
