Saturday 10/26/13 – Ground Only

by on Nov.17, 2013, under Flying

Ground school on Saturday consisted on how to read a Sectional Chart & Talking on the radio. The sectional charts themselves are quite confusing, but once you learn what each type of line its really not that bad. The biggest issue I see so far is trying to translate to ground reference points

The key thing we learned about was identifying Class G, E, D, C, & B airspace. For some reason there is no Class F airspace and Class A is anything flying higher than 18,000 feet and under 60,000 feet.

After that we discussed various radio communications and transponder settings.  Really nothing exciting but good to know stuff.

Once again my plane was still in maintenance so we got canceled again. I really don’t remember much about what we went over that day. I do remember myself & Mark going over weather reports again and talking about pattern work.
