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.

Class B - BIG and BAD. Large Airports with HEAVY Traffic.
Class C - COMPLEX Mid Sized contolled airport.
Class D - DULL Smaller controlled airport. Light Traffic.

Class A - "A" is the highest mark you can get, so equate that with high altitude (Class A airspace being FL180 up to and including FL600).

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.


You will do fine.

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.

Good luck on your exam!



buhh bye

My apologies for not noticing your username and realizing you needed a Canadian reference! Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Best regards,

Mnemonics are the way to go, as suggested. Make it personal, silly, uniquely obscure - the mind is a very easy thing to trick, and the knowledge will stay with you forever.

Good luck!

Although if you ever hit class A airspace in your glider..remember your camera for us.  Laugh out loud
