In the November/December issue of PC Pilot, we reported that PilotEdge only covers California. In fact, PilotEdge offers ATC within the Seattle, Oakland, Los Angeles, Denver, Salt Lake City and Albuquerque ARTCCs, covering approximately 50% of the contiguous US. This is split into two separate subscription options, ZLA and Western US.
ZLA Coverage Area
This option provides service within the lateral limits of the Los Angeles ARTCC (ZLA). This covers half of California, much of Nevada, and portions of Arizona & Utah. It includes 3 class Bravo airports (LAX, SAN, LAS), 6 class Charlie airports, and 30 class Delta airports. It also includes KLSV, KINS and KTNX to support military operations. Full VFR and IFR support is offered for non-towered airports within the ZLA Coverage Area, allowing pilots to obtain IFR clearances and releases while on the ground as well as clearances for instrument approaches with separation from other IFR aircraft.
Western US Coverage Area
The Western US covers the Seattle, Oakland, Salt Lake City, Denver and Albuquerque ARTCC’s. It’s also possible to receive enroute VFR and IFR service to ALL of the airports within the airspace. Airports not listed above are treated as non-towered.
The map below showing PilotEdge’s total coverage area, marked with towered airports. There are approximately 2,850 public-use airports within the lateral limits of the coverage area.
