Class C scenario: You're VFR, squawking 1200, inbound to an airport inside Class C airspace. You listen to ATIS, monitor the approach frequency and have trouble getting a call in, because the controller is up to her headset in traffic. Or, at least it sounds that way. You finally call, "Ailerona Approach, Cirrus 1324X, 25 east, Lima, landing Ailerona." After you unkey, the controller says, "Cirrus 1324X, Ailerona Approach, standby." Unless you're a rotorcraft, hovering is not an option. Are you permitted to enter the Class C airspace?
