This is my first question here and I am about to start my Private Pilot License (PPL).
Now I am flying in my Flight Simulator X. So, I am at KDKK airport. It has an elevation of 692 MSL . I got my ATIS report 2100 MSL scattered and 3000 MSL broken. The airport is in class G and the weather minimum here is clear of clouds.
At 1200 AGL we have class E airspace and 500 feet below clouds rule applies here. The question is: flying at 1800 I will still be flying in G airspace, but will not comply with 500 feet class e rule and will be closer than 500 feet to the clouds. Is it legal?
And the second question: still didn't find clear definition of "clear of clouds". Is that mean that there are no clouds at all? or it could be clouds, and I can fly very close to them, but I can't get through the clouds?
