Received via email this evening...

I want to tell you, pilotedge is a great tool for practice my radio communication, in México I held my commercial pilot license, but all the radio slang is completely different, technically I learn English 11 years ago when I met my wife I'm 44 years old, I'm trying to get my FAA pilot license, and still talking and writing backwards, but I prefer make a mistake on the simulator than the real world, yesterday I make a few mistakes, pilotedge twr correct to me. PLEASE tell your staff thank you for helping me.
Foreing people we appreciate it any language is easy to learn.

I'd like to +1 all of the good things that people have said about PilotEdge. It's really helped my radio communication in the real world. I was usually alright until I got an approach clearance and my brain would lock up about half way through it. With PilotEdge, I've been able to fly IFR flight after IFR flight after IFR flight, and I'm slowly getting better on the radio. It's saved me a fortune over trying to replicate that same amount of experience in the air.

I've also been really impressed by the quality of the controllers I've worked with on PilotEdge. They show a lot of patience for us task-saturated IFR students. Thanks for all of the help, especially whoever was handling Santa Barbara approach tonight when I had to request an amended clearance mid-approach due to a baby waking up.

I'd like to take my turn with a big shout out to Keith and all the ATC folks on PilotEdge who put up with my constant mistakes and my guts coming straight out of my mouth because of mic fright lol.

Thank you! I'm thoroughly enjoying my time in PilotEdge.

Every time I participate I learn something new and that is pretty sweet. Controllers are both kind and "real world unforgiving" at the same time, and I think that is a good thing and helping me prepare for real flight so much, if that day ever comes.

But also, in these uncertain times and not having a normal life right now and having to self-isolate even now because of my medical condition, it's been just wonderful firing up X-plane, and getting away from all of this nonsense and immersing myself into a world, and an industry and profession I previously knew not much about. Awesome. I love to learn.

The other thing that I really enjoy is the sort of tour I'm doing as a result of progressing through the CAT tests. I'm at CAT 7 now. As I write this I'm assuming everyone knows, you start out at one airport and progressively move onto another from the destination airport (at least until CAT 7). That's a lot of fun because it gets (realistically) and progressively harder and I get to see (with the help of Orbx) parts of my native California (I live in Maine now) that I've never seen and certainly haven't experienced from the air. So, I make a bit of a game out of it and promise myself I won't look at the next CAT rating until I've passed the present one. Stupid and corny, I agree but fuck Covid, I need to escape lol. And I need to learn and develop a new skill.

So thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn something new in a solid, realistic environment. :-)

PilotEdge is truly awesome!
