Looks great!

I think this 'community' would be a lot more vibrant/active if other members with aspirations to develop

their own airspace could actually do it (as advertised). You seem to have found a way.

As it is ... it's pretty quiet around here.

The commands should be the same for all sectors--as with the original sectors.  When the target gets to altitude, click on it to initiate handoff to center.  It flashes.   When it stops flashing, the target turns to a "C" and then you give it, "DLH 27, contact center on 120.80".  (for instance).
