The Western US coverage area now includes Casper (KCPR), and Jackson Hole (KJAC) airports. This brings the number of towered airports within the Western US coverage area to 38.

Jackson Hole is surrounded by mountains and sports two graphical ODPs, RNP approaches, an ILS with a Fly Visual segment (!!) and a VOR/DME approach with an arc segment providing a wealth of interesting training scenarios.

Casper is no slouch with an ILS approach containing 27 and 29 mile arcs and a pilot nav SID with holding for slower climbing aircraft.

I made an error in the deployment this morning (failed to restart the server after uploading the new frequency database), so JAC and CPR weren't active until a few minutes ago. All set now, though.

It was quite active today. I sat on the ramp and watched a bunch of airliners deal with the crosswind. Fun!

Added now. I had them ready prior to the Feb 1st announcement but I got distracted on the 1st and failed to “flip the switch” to turn them on.
