So, this is one of the coolest things we have had on the show. Keith Smith introduced us to his product called PilotEdge. If you are an avid Flight Simulator user either Microsoft or X-Plane, then you need to check this out! Right out of the gates you could hear Keith's passion for what he is doing and why he is doing it. When we got down to the bottom of it we discovered that Keith is creating an industry by providing real live ATC services on virtual flight simulation platforms. This was thing element that was truly missing in these awesome programs. Keith provided a solution for it. Not only does it sound exciting for a recreation purpose the reality is PilotEdge boosts the value proposition of simulated flight training. We played some examples of Al using PilotEdge. Can you tell a difference that this is real or not? We didn't think so!
