[Moderator Note:  This chart is maintained by a different person than the table in the first post, so they may be slightly out of sync.  Discussion of the chart format should take place in the SpaceX Manifest Table Format Discussion thread.]

Disclaimer:
1. This chart is based on information from open sources only. Therefore, it has a lot of guesswork.
2. I fully realize that most of actual dates and even launch order will turn out quite different, but prediction is not the purpose. The purpose of the chart is to visualize “launch density” and possible scheduling conflicts for Cape and Vandenberg.
I’ll update this chart as new scheduling information becomes available, however, some time-gap between this chart and the above schedule table is inevitable (will try to minimize it :) )

Notes for the chart (permanent ones)
Vertical scale:
Shows three pads operated by SpaceX at two ranges – Vandenberg and Cape Canaveral – enclosed in dotted grey lines.
Horizontal scale is approximate because I just divided year into 12 equal periods, therefore tick-marks are not exactly on the 1st of the month.
Launch marks:
SpaceX launches are blue circles. Blue crosses show the dates of successful Static Fire tests for the past launches and the one already scheduled for the next launch. Bright blue labels denote government launches (NASA, NRO, and USAF).
Red circles represent all other launches (ULA and Orbital ATK) from any pads of these two ranges.
Vertical green line shows the date for a particular version of the chart.

------------------------------------------
Note for particular chart (as of July 28, 2017).
Basically just one thing: the Oct-Dec schedule for Cape is pretty tight.
The launch cadence is similar to May-June, but there is a difference - in May-June SpaceX had Eastern Range all for themselves, there were no flights by ULA in this period.  Here they have three launches for Oct-Dec, and all satellites are for military.
------------------------------------------
Note for update of Aug 16 2017:
Two ULA launches moved to 2018 (pale-dotted marks show their old launch dates).
So for Oct-Dec, SpaceX is the only user of Eastern Range.

GovSat-1 launch expected for December 2017 #GovSat1 #satellite #Luxembourg #Europe #Defence 100komma7.lu/article/aktual…

Edit: added the tweet contents. Just realized that Tapatalk now automatically displays tweets from just the link alone, but the forum (accessed directly) does not..

Text from related 21 juli article:
De Satellit GovSat-1 dierft mat liichtem Retard lancéiert ginn. Den initiale Plang war e Lancement am Oktober. Vun der privater US-Entreprise SpaceX hätt een elo eng Zäitfënster confirméiert kritt. A priori fir Dezember, sou de Generaldirekter vu LuxGovSat Patrick Biewer. Enn 2017, respektiv Ufank 2018 soll de Betrib vum sougenannte Militär-Satellit kënnen ufänken

So SpaceX gave LuxGovSat CEO Patrick Biewer notice the launch is now planned for December

Lol!

Me:
Any chance you will start using flight proven boosters for coming launches?
IridiumBoss:
Sure, there is always a chance...

[SpaceNews] Telesat says low latency led to LEO constellation
Quote
Telesat does have two GEO-HTS satellites under construction, Telstar-18 Vantage and Telstar-19 Vantage, from Space Systems Loral of Palo Alto, California. Those are scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2018, Goldberg said. Both are launching on SpaceX Falcon 9 rockets. Telstar-18 Vantage, which Hong Kong-based APT Satellite is co-financing in exchange for capacity on the satellite, targets the Asia Pacific; Telstar 19 Vantage covers the Americas.

Iridium Announces Third Iridium® NEXT Launch Date

MCLEAN, Va. – July 28, 2017 - Iridium Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: IRDM) announced today that the upcoming Iridium NEXT launch has been targeted for September 30, 2017 at 6:30 a.m. PDT. This launch will deliver another 10 Iridium NEXT satellites to orbit on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and will bring the total number of Iridium NEXT satellites deployed to 30. SpaceX selected the September 30th launch date based on rocket and Vandenberg Air Force Base range availability. SpaceX’s targeted launch schedule accommodates completion of the Iridium NEXT constellation as planned in mid-2018. In total, SpaceX will deliver 75 Iridium NEXT satellites to orbit. In case of inclement weather, a backup launch date has been scheduled for October 1.

Unlike previous launches where some Iridium NEXT satellites were sent drifting to an orbital plane different from where they were launched, all 10 satellites for this launch are currently planned to provide service in orbital plane four. The Iridium constellation’s unique architecture is designed with six polar orbiting planes consisting of 11 interconnected satellites per plane, with in-orbit spares, creating a true web of connectivity around the planet.

SpaceX has scheduled the fourth launch to take place in late November. Iridium NEXT manufacturing has completed enough satellites for nearly the next three SpaceX launches. All Iridium NEXT launches take place from SpaceX’s West Coast launch facility at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Iridium NEXT is the company’s $3 billion next-generation mobile, global satellite network scheduled for completion in 2018. Iridium NEXT will replace the company’s

existing global constellation in one of the largest technology upgrades ever completed in space. It represents the evolution of critical communications infrastructure that governments and organizations worldwide rely upon to drive business, enable connectivity, empower disaster relief efforts and more. Iridium NEXT will enable and introduce new services like the company’s next-generation communications platform, Iridium CertusSM, and the AireonSM space-based ADS-B aircraft surveillance and flight tracking network. The Iridium NEXT satellites are manufactured by Thales Alenia Space and assembled by its subcontractor, Orbital ATK, at its facility in Gilbert, Arizona.

If so, SES-11 may now be the first flight from pad 40 after its reactivation.

That's fitting because SES-11 was supposed to be the first 39A launch after it was finished, pre-AMOS 6

My current guess for matching FCC permits to future SpaceX missions (a very inexact science):

[Payload (FCC Mission #) - Location, Landing Method]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CRS-12 (CRS-12) - Florida, RTLS
Formosat 5 (1344) - California, ASDS
OTV-5 (1348) - Florida, RTLS
SES-11 (1334) - Florida, ASDS
Iridium Flight 3 (1339) - California, ASDS
Koreasat-5A (1370) - Florida, permit is for either RTLS or ASDS
CRS-13 (not filed yet)
Hispasat 30W-6 (1387) - Florida, Expendable

FCC M1334 should be already used for BulgariaSat-1 mission
