Default Possible Pilot Deviation

Hello everyone! I´m a private instrument rated pilot in United States. I´m new in the aviation field, and I recently found myself 500 ft. above the floor of class B airspace without authorization. I was with my instructor practicing some commercial maneuvers. Before landing, the tower controller told me that there was a possible pilot deviation and that I needed to call a number. After landing, I called the number and the lady wrote down my name, pilot number, and phone number and told me that somebody will contact me. I called the same number next day, and they told me that they send the report to the local FSDO, and that somebody will contact me in a few days. What should I expect? What should I do? Did anybody recently have a similar experience? What did you do to solve the problem? Thank you in advance for any comment or suggestion.

File a NASA safety report immediately. https://asrs.arc.nasa.gov/report/electronic.html Things happen and it's not the end of the world. Everyone has something on their record and no one is perfect. Learn from it and move on. Be honest about it when you advance and interview with an airline.

That's great, but why did you feel the need to pos this in 18 different sections?

If you are a member of AOPA, contact the legal services and talk to them first thing tomorrow morning. Also, fill out a NASA report IMMEDIATELY. Not the end of the world, but these two steps will likely help if from being a major problem down the road.

NASA safety report. IMMEDIATELY!

AOPA's legal services will save your butt with things like this happen. Until you join an airline with a union, be a member of AOPA just for the legal service.

This could be a potential problem later. Do you really want to have to tell every employer that you ever interview with about your violation?

Fill out a NASA report or ASRS report. I wouldn't sweat it too much.

You really don't need to post the same thread 7 times in 7 different places.

File a NASA ASRS form like, yesterday.

Be forthcoming when you talk to the FAA. Part of the new “Compliance philosophy” is being open about making a mistake, and listening to feedback from the FAA. If they think you aren’t open to feedback or are covering up, they can take it out of the compliance action track, and put it into enforcement action. That is very rare though.

What half wing said, plus get ahead of it and contact a FAAST Team rep from your FSDO. Show the ASI that you sought remedial training ahead of their investigation.
