News: Communication and Airspace Training program now available

Posted Wednesday, October 5, 2016

PilotEdge is pleased to announce the immediate release of the VFR Communication and Airspace Training (CAT) program. This is series of 11 VFR scenarios that are available to be flown on PilotEdge, covering a wide range of airspace and communication interactions. This will replace the existing V-1, V-2 and V-3 ratings with a more gradual training progression with the legacy ratings being retired from public availability in one week from now.

Each rating consists of a defined set of objectives, an airspace review, communication review, ATC transcript and helpful resources. Pilots conduct the flights on the network with ATC serving as a virtual Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE), receiving a pass/fail grade at the end of the flight. Additional multimedia resources will be added to the ratings, including cockpit videos and additional background information for the flight.

The legacy VFR ratings have been immensely popular with PilotEdge customers and so it gives us great pleasure to bring the new CAT ratings to the community.
