DA Form 7870 – Minimum Altitude Minimum Vectoring Altitude Obstruction Documentation
Minimum Altitude/Minimum Vectoring (MVA) charts contain sectors that are at least 3 miles from the highest obstruction. They also include buffer areas to ensure that MVA’s are not overly high. In each sector, the minimum vectoring altitude is either 1000 ft above or 2000 ft above the highest obstruction. The MVA is the lowest altitude that is high enough to meet the requirements for obstacle clearance.
