SAlt

VVHA

In my last, I was attempting to answer Tucumsah's query. 5900 feet is the SAlt for the complete leg, Mull - Corrin, 2400 feet is the SALt in the area within 5nm of the highest point on the Mull.

Leaving aside radar-flown/SF aircraft whose limits are presumably restricted, I cannot believe that anyone flies overland IMC less than 1000 feet above the highest ground.

SAlt above the sea is not really relevant here.
