VFR cruising levels (Odd or Even?)

[Ref VFRG (AU), Australia AIP ENR 1.7]

VFR flights must be flown at a cruising level appropriate to its magnetic track according to the diagram below and the table:

  • when cruising level is 5000 ft or higher; or
  • when practicable when cruising level is below 5000 ft (CAR 173).

 

 

Magnetic tracks From 000° through East to 179°

ODD + 500′

From 180° through West to 359°

EVEN + 500′
