Ok, you can't operate a part 103 vehicle "within the lateral boundaries of the surface area of Class E airspace designated for an airport unless that person has prior authorization from the ATC facility having jurisdiction over that airspace." 103.17 The AIM says: "Surface area designated for an airport. When designated as a surface area for an airport, the airspace will be configured to contain all instrument procedures." The AIM wording would lead me to believe that the airspace referred to in 103.17 is limited to the "magenta dashed line circle plus sometimes a big dashed rectangle" and not the "magenta fade line around an airport" airspace. Am I right, or is it more insidious than that?
