On the Air December 2013 Issue

On The Air: December 2013

It was the Christmas season. I was departing Palo Alto airport in the San Francisco Bay Area, with Class Bravo airspace above me. I contacted Departure while in a climb and was asked what my cruising altitude would be.

I told him and he responded, “Cleared through Class Bravo at...”, then stopped short and admonished me since I was already in Bravo airspace. I apologized and he responded, “Okay, this time!”

Just then an unidentified pilot came on the frequency and said “That’s the Christmas spirit!”
