    Why not ask the FAA controllers at AirVenture?

    If it's a class D, you're obliged to stay in communication until you exit the area. The nominal class D is bigger than a 4 mile circle, and in some cases may not be circular.
    The four mile circle only applies to towers that are inside class G or E airspace (wasn't supposed to happen, but the FAA was screwed up on that one).
