1) Proceed to “BERRI” intersection

“1910 was a big year for some firsts! Hubert Latham was the first to fly above 3000 feet. This was accomplished in an Antionette airplane. A Frenchman, Henri C. Farman made quite a few daring flights, one of which was the first night flight. He also had a good year in 1908 when he made the first circular flight of one kilometer in Europe on January 13. On October 30 that same year, he made the first cross country flight in an aeroplane from Chalons to Reims, which was a distance of 16½ miles.”

2) Climb to “2500” feet

“Do you see the dashed line wedge border north of BERRI intersection that says '48/35'? That is Class E airspace. According to the Airman's Information Manual, if the airspace is not Class A, Class B, Class C, or Class D, and it is controlled airspace, it is Class E airspace! In this case, it is more like an extension to the surface area adjacent to it, which is a Class C area.”

3) Go to AirLeg 44
