“You can't tell from your chart in this book, but on a pretty colored Terminal area chart, you'd see that you are transitioning through a magenta colored Class C airspace. Its vertical limits are usually from the surface to 4000 feet AGLfor a 5 nautical mile radius, called the inner area. Since Burbank airport is 775 feet in elevation, that's why the ceiling is shown as '48' or 4800 feet. As long as you have two way radio communications occurring between you and the tower, with their approval, you 're hunkey-dory!”
