    Hi,

    Since the FlyWithMe forum is now opened, I think that it is interesting to know on which network everybody are flying.

    I used to fly vatsim for years and now I am doing the transition to IVAO, which is more accurate IMHO regarding the communications and procedures.

    PilotEdge. As real as it gets, available 18 hours a day 363 days a year, and with the Western Expansion it’s a massive coverage area. For me it’s worth every penny.

    PE.  I think it is an excellent choice if you keep yourself locally/ west coast, and if you are low & slow     in particular

    True about low and slow, although with the Western Expansion now there are some jet routes that would keep you in the seat for a couple of hours …

    OK, I want to give PE a try!
    One question though…

    When watching the videos here, I see that the controllers are using a different approach to what I am used to in the real life and sim GA flights….

    Over here we fly CVFR only, which means you never fly without a controller (in real life).

    Where can I train my PE/US COM skills?

    PE would be the place to do it. They have created a large library of free training videos, and have a series of both VFR and IFR ratings (which are like training missions) that you can complete to build your skills. See here:

    Thank you for the tip BFG!
    I will give them a test flight today or tomorrow, and will try to record it (how do you record the sound with the gopro???)

    Hi. For the GoPro if you go online you can buy an adapter. Mine is aviation dual-plugs on one end and the USB GoPro plug on the other … check Sporty’s Pilot Shop and they should have them.
