Oggers,
You do understand the extent of E in US, do you? And the slightly different use of terminology with VFR and VMC in the US? Although the result is the same.
Not to mention the ease of getting a clearance in US, or filing airborne, and I am not referring to radar or VHF coverage.
Tootle pip!!
