Minneapolis Class B

Asked by: 2161 views Student Pilot

I have a stage check Tuesday and my stage instructor gave me a route from Fosston (FSE) to St. Paul (STP).


Taking a look at skyvector.com:

I am wondering if I plan a direct route if it can be acceptable to fly under the Class B the entire time since STP is located under the Class B shelf starting at 023 up to 10.

The quadrant north of STP that notes thats 2,600 FT is the very minimum I should fly at.

    I’m based at Crystal (MIC). You’re fine. There’s no VFR minimum altitude beyond 1000′ AGL over populated areas (500′ otherwise), the altitude you’re referring to is the maximum obstacle altitude, which addresses the towers and buildings around downtown Saint Paul. You can remain below the shelf and be perfectly legal as long as you don’t hit anything, which yoU won’t.
