Hey guys, I really need your help! My glider acceptance exam for the Canadian Air Cadets is in a week. But I still don't have air space down. Do you guys have any ways of remembering them, like acronyms or something??? Canadian Rules too. Theres not too much differnece between the USA and Canada anyways.

I don't have any ways for really remembering it besides just cramming and getting it into the short term memory. Then throughout normal flying you'll pick it up without ever even realizing it. At least, thats how it was with me...good luck.

We don't have Class F in the US. I think Flyboy36Y has a good system down.
Class B airports are relatively rare. In the US, you have to be cleared in to Class B airspace in order to enter. That is what differentiates it from other kinds of airspace and was a question that my instructor got me on once.

A few other ways to help:
Class B - B is for "blue," the blue circles outlining the Class B airspace. Think of it as if you're a little kid; you have to ask permission before doing ANYTHING involving Class B airspace.
Class C - C is for "call," since it's like Class B but not quite as strict. Two-way radio communication required with ATC prior to entering Class C airspace, but not an official clearance like with Class B.

YWG - if you are doing a Canadian license, ignore US airspace. Superficially, they are similar, but there are some distinct differences that could fool you on your exam. For example, the above mentionned Class B airspace is mid-level airspace in Canada, whereas in the US, it applies to large, busy airports, from the surface. The best resource for Canadian airspace is the training book "From the Ground Up" which is tailored specifically to Canadian operations.
