In VFR flights from class C, I sometimes get
resume own navigation, altitude your discretion after departure and sometimes just
resume own navigation.
resume own navigation alone mean
altitude your direction as well?
Let's assume scenario below for KSNA and to be more specific:
Pilot to Clearance Delivery: 529J with request
Clearance Delivery: 529J go ahead
Pilot to Clearance Delivery: 529J is Cessna 172/u west side parking, requesting El Toro departure to Chino with information Bravo
Clearance Delivery to Pilot: After Departure turn left heading 080, Maintain VFR at or below 2400, SoCal on 124.1, SQUAWK 0210
Pilot: reads back …
Pilot starts taxi then take off with proper radio communication with ground and tower. After departure Tower hands pilot over to SoCal.
Pilot to SoCal (initial call): SoCal 529J departed John Wayne, 1100 climbing, requesting 3000 to Chino
SoCal to pilot: 529J resume own navigation
Here is the confusion, sometime SoCal comes back with only resume own navigation. Does this mean pilot can climb to 3000 or altitude restriction for 2400 still valid?
