Question about Approach Altitudes in the Flight Plan.

1) Looking at the VOR-A Approach for KBLM (Attached), the "MIN ALT" altitude for the Missed Approach Point - MADCA is shown in the Flight as 720' which is the MDA for Category D Aircraft - is it possible to change the default minimum altitudes to Category A.

2) The othe altitude in the flight plan for MADCA is shown as 3500' - and 3500' is the altitude shown for all legs of this approach on the right (Image of Flight Plan is also attached)  Where does this altitude of 3500' come from?  I don't see it anywhere on the approach plate.

 

Thanks, Manny

If you don't pick an initial altitude, iFly will calculate a minimum safe altitude for the route - I guessing that's where it came from.

Thanks.  But 3500' is way above all other minimum altitudes for this approach.
