CVGpilot - obviously it's up to you, but I would actually recommend keeping PAI
packages and using UT for the airlines PAI
do not cover. I purchased UT some weeks ago and I tried it out with all the airlines it covers. I found it lacked that attention to detail that you get with the PAI
packages. So now I am running UT just for those airlines not covered by PAI
, and it works very well. When I am flying from regional airports, for example, I get a lot of the smaller regional traffic which UT provides but PAI
do not (yet). In the past they were very empty. On the other hand, flying from major airports like LHR
I still get the AI
I have set up with the PAI
packages, as well as a few other unusual airlines (Croatia comes to mind) from UT.
The downside is the PAI
schedules from their older packages are not as up to date as UT's. However this is not a major problem as you can download new schedules for free from MRAI
all the time, provided you have time to spare to set them up.
Based on the above, it is obviously possible to select certain airlines for UT and not others. Just make a list of the airlines you have covered by PAI
and then in UT when you click Compile uncheck those airlines on your list.
At the end of the day it is your choice, but as stated I have tried both and found that keeping the PAI
packages is more satisfying than using UT for everything.
Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned forever skyward
