In order to correctly configure the Airspace altitude filters, you should take into account both the Altitude filter and the Filter mode.


The example on the left shows the altitude filter set to FL120, and the filter mode set to “At selected altitude”. This means that the map will only show Airspaces which have vertical limits within FL120.

If you change the filter mode to “Up to selected altitude” the map will show ALL the Airspaces from the surface up to FL120.

caption
To display ALL Airspaces, you will set the altitude filter to FL200 like in the image on the right.
