Nice flight,although at 5:30 you were saying about the legality of going under class C & B airspace, some IFR arrivals/departures aren't wholly in controlled airspace. Not sure what it's like for you in Canada though schteevie.
+Karl Hillary Yeah - it's the same here, but I talked to my instructor about how to handle the context here, and he said saying it this way was acceptable because the airspace floors are designed to be conservative to allow for the needs of the IFR traffic... But that is also why I added the part about having to ask yourself if it is smart to skirt it. Every situation requires it's own planning / thinking... and that's why I broke this one down in such detail.
