VFR Departure Clearance at a Non Towered A/P?

Asked by: 849 views Flight Instructor, General Aviation, Student Pilot

Hi Guys, I will be departing a non towered airport with a CTAF, no ground frequency, in class E airspace.  The AF/D for the airport lists  clearance delivery and app/dep  available on the ARTCC frequency.  So if I am departing VFR do I need to get a clearance from clearance delivery or can I just make my position reports on the CTAF?   Thanks

    No clearance necessary. Make normal announcements.

    6696, I just have to ask these questions:

    1. What is a “clearance delivery” frequency for?

    2. In what class E airspace is a VFR flight required to have a clearance?
