Pilot Edge is a professional air traffic control network for flight simulators; it was founded in 2010 by Keith Smith and on today’s podcast we hear all about it.
Designed to cater for those who want a more serious approach to air traffic control, PilotEdge isn’t for everyone so before joining, you need to assess three different ideas:
1. How flexible are you in terms of where you fly? The PilotEdge coverage area is 1000+ non-towered airports and ~85 towered airports, covering the western half of the United States.
2. How important is it to have ATC on a known schedule, and with a specific level of quality in terms of the controllers’ procedural knowledge?
3. Are you willing to part with $ for the ATC service?
Consider those 3 ideas to figure out if Pilot Edge is a worthwhile investment for you; if you’re still not sure, Pilot Edge offers a 14-day free trial so you can see what it’s like.
