Why does the update news section say that Pe add-on is not available in the US? Does this mean it is not compatible? If yes, why is it that North American releases of games, music cds, movie DVDs etc always get short changed compared to the other places? It happens all the time everyone else always gets bonus tracks and/or cds, features on their dvds while we either get the bare minimum or we get to pay for each hyper-super special editions that the big wigs decide to release every couple of years. So what's the deal this time?

It works the with the North American version because the North American version is the same version as the rest of the world's except Russia's.

The reason seem to be a legal technicality thing, something possibly to do with sales rights or "intellectual property" rights of aircrafts belonging to certain American companies. The add-on is available to US customers through UK and other European vendors. It seems that UBI are not allowed to sell through US based vendors.

Usually it's the other way around. Coming from Europe, about every 3rd or so product I'd like to order are only available to US or US and Canada. Those that are available, comes at a higher price for "foreign export". Actually, this is the first time at all that I have come across an internet purchase that that is "not available in the US". Now, since it actually is available to US-customers (at the same price that everyone else must pay), you have not been short changed at all.
