Preface

 ATC issues you, “Cruise 8000.” What does this entitle you to do? (May have multiple answers.)

1.

You must cruise at 8000.

2.

You may climb or descend in an altitude block between 8000 and the minimum IFR altitude as you wish without reporting to ATC.

3.

This instruction is only for Tom Cruise’s jet.

4.

Bonus: A cruise clearance also authorizes you to fly an approach at your destination.
