If you're travelling to, or live on the West Coast of the USA then you may want to take note that GPS will be possibly unavailable on an evening for the next couple of weeks up to 16th Feb. The US AirForce are carrying out a huge training exercise over the Nevada desert where GPS will be switched off to test pilot's skills without relying on the technology.

Flying.com have posted the following information about times and affected areas:

The NBAA Command Center reports the U.S. military will begin training exercises on the Nevada Test and Training Range between 0400Z until 0700Z daily. Training maneuvers will impact vast portions of the Western U.S. including California, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Montana and New Mexico. FAA enroute ATC centers affected include Albuquerque (ZAB), Denver (ZDV), Los Angeles (ZLA), Salt Lake (ZLC), Oakland (ZOA) and Seattle (ZSE).

Pokemon Go players will also be affected...

Note: 0400Z to 0700Z is 20:00PST to 23:00PST local time.
