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.March 5, 2017 at 3:09 pm #1922
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 particularMarch 6, 2017 at 5:39 pm #1946
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?May 3, 2017 at 7:28 am #2625
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???)May 8, 2017 at 7:34 pm #2645
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.
