I just flew into Bravo unintentionally 48 hours ago. My error: I thought I was 1,500 feet above the ceiling, but I was 1,000 feet below it.
Furthermore, I had an incorrect frequency for Approach, and while I eventually found the proper frequency (I'd planned to request flight following) I had crossed over the outer ring.
When I contacted Approach, the Approach Controller explained I was in Bravo, and to turn West and exit. I did say, "Am I not ABOVE Bravo airspace?" He said "No, you're in it" and to fly West and exit.
From that moment, I followed approach control's directions to a T, but could not understand why he directed me West (remaining in Class B for 13 more miles) instead of having me climb 1,500 feet or angle back North or North-West to exit Bravo more quickly.
I was given the dreaded phone number, made the call after landing, had a friendly enough discussion, and he said it would probably lead to a counseling session. My question is what is that?
I'm familiar with the remedial training option the FAA may offer, but what did he mean by "counseling session"? The controller implied it would be handled by phone.
I'm not freaking yet, just concerned. I told everything that happened on that phone call, and then filed an ASRS report.
