“AS” usage issue: as “adjective” as …
A as extending [ “extending” functions as participle and modifying the upward, both together form adjective pair – hold it]
B as the extent [“as” in this case requires sub clause - eliminate it]
C to be an extent [“to be” - eliminate it]
D to be an extension [“to be” - eliminate it]
E to extend [“to extend” functions as noun - eliminate it]

I missed idiom check - regard to - incorrect idiom
Plus my analysis was airspace to extend[infinitive function as noun] upward [adjective] as high as high
