Within the established transition zones adjacent to each instrument and noninstrument runway and approach zone, no building, structure or growth shall be erected, altered or permitted to project above a plane with a slope of one (vertical) to seven (horizontal) (1:7). Transition zones extend outward and upward from a line (*) feet on either side of the centerline of noninstrument runways for the length of the runway plus 200 feet on each end; to a height 150 feet above the elevation of the airport reference point. In addition, transition zones are established adjacent to both instrument and noninstrument approach zones which flare outward and upward symmetrically along the entire length of each approach zone to where they intercept to the surfaces of the horizontal and conical zones.
* The applicable distance in feet must be based on runway length as set forth in § 77.25 of part 77 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.
