​Class E 

IFR and VFR flights are permitted.  IFR flights are provided with air traffic control service and are separated from other IFR flights.  All flights receive traffic information, when requested, as controller workload permits. Unless services are required from air traffic control there is no requirement for the airplane to have two way radio communications capability.  A transponder is only required at 10,000 feet MSL and above.  Pilots DO NOT have to establish two way communications or obtain a clearance.

Class G 

IFR and VFR flights are permitted.  There are no communications, or transponder requirements.  Pilots may operate freely without a clearance or establishing two way communications with ATC.
