QuotePilotEdge has launched an expanded area of ATC operations called the Western US Expansion. It encompasses the Seattle, Oakland, Salt Lake City, Denver and Albuquerque ARTCCs. This is an optional paid expansion to the Los Angeles ARTCC primary coverage area. The total coverage area can be seen on the Operating Hours and Service Area page.The Primary AirportsThe Western US Expansion was initially designed to provide transport category jets with a wider range of viable city pairs when flying on PilotEdge. Historically, such flights have typically required the use of KSFO or KLAS as the origin or destination simply to make the trip of a reasonable length. The Western US Expansion provides a healthy list of suitable Part 121 airports especially when combined with the existing coverage area.Here are the Primary airports for the Western US Expansion: KASE: Aspen-Pitkin County Airport KDEN: Denver International Airport KPDX: Portland International Airport KPHX: Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport KSEA: Seattle-Tacoma International Airport KSFO: San Francisco International Airport KSLC: Salt Lake City International AirportThe Bonus AirportsIn order to provide additional variety and concentration of traffic, the Western US Expansion includes a list of 10 bonus airports which will be served on a 2-week rotating basis (one airport at a time, changing every two weeks). Not only does this provide additional city pairs and concentrated traffic, but the proximity to primary airports will also encourage turboprop and piston flights between the Bonus airport and the closest Primary airport.The current Bonus field is listed in the Network Status section of the home page.Here is the initial Bonus airport schedule for the Western US Expansion: KABQ: Albuquerque International Sunport Airport (12/27-1/9) KEGE: Eagle County Regional Airport (1/10 – 1/23) KRNO: Reno/Tahoe International Airport (1/24 – 2/6) KMRY: Monterey Regional Airport (2/7 – 2/20) KSAC: Sacramento Executive Airport (2/21 – 3/6) KSJC: Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (3/7 – 3/20) KGEG: Spokane International Airport (3/21 – 4/3) KOAK: Metropolitan Oakland International Airport (4/4 – 4/17) KYKM: Yakima Air Terminal (4/18 – 5/1) KSMF: Sacramento International Airport (5/2 – 5/15)

Quote Also, in the way PE is designed you cannot hear pilot communication responses for pilots on a different frequency from yours (unlike VATSIM a controller will be handling all the frequencies within a given sector...but you can only hear responses from pilots on your active frequency). So the net of it is that I find myself many times rudely interrupting the flow of communications....Fred K
