Flying from KPRB to KKIC, in a straight route shown on SkyVector, except keeping slightly to the East of R-2504A&B, holding an altitude of 3500MSL, except for normal takeoff and descent rates, am I correct in the following?
- Taking off from KPRB, you're in Class E airspace within the dashed magenta lines.
- Once you're out of KPRB's dashed magenta lines, all the way to landing at KKIC, you're in Class G airspace.
I'm watching a video from PilotEdge, and at 47:33 he roughly says "We know we're going to be in Echo as we take off. We're going to be in Echo for the rest. We know we're in Echo by default, because there's nothing else around."
I think the "We're going to be in Echo for the rest" part is wrong. Am I correct here? If I'm wrong, can you please explain why it's Class E? It's not within a fuzzy blue or magenta line, and we're flying at 3500MSL, so obviously never going above the Class G 14500AGL ceiling.
I think he's just simplifying things because in another video said VFR pilots in the air can practically treat all Class G airspace as Class E, not using the less restrictive weather minimums, and be safer. But, starting to learn aeronautical charts and flight planning, I want to know if I'm fundamentally starting with a misunderstanding or not. The YouTube video has no comments about this statement.
