Class E Airspace is everywhere, but do you completely understand how to fly in it?

Huge thanks to Jim for hosting my family and sharing some awesome P.E.I. Aviation with us!

Additional context about the whole Class E control zone thing:

I almost never get to fly in this specific sort of scenario with FSS providing advisory service on an mandatory frequency at a Class E airport. 

Thanks to my ATC buddies Ryan and Stephen, here is some additional context about the whole Class E control zone thing: 

“I’m not sure of the best way to word it, but as you likely know, class E is abundant, you fly in E a lot with your day to day flying. E is controlled for IFR, and not for VFR. FSS are not controllers and at airports where they provide advisory service – weather, Airport and traffic information – they will also relay IFR clearances from the IFR controller. When flying at such airports your radio procedures are similar to what you would use at a non tower airport, except instead of addressing your calls to “traffic”, you address them to “Radio” and they answer you and give you any required information. Probably way to far into the weeds… 

Even stranger is RAAS (remote aerodrome advisory service) as yyg provides at Sydney, and yts provides at yqa, and ysb provides at yxu when the tower is closed.”

I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
