Hi, this is a PMDG forum you've asked the question in and not really for here but I'll give you a couple of tips anyway (cos I'm a friendly guy!!)It's a big challenge if there are lots of controllers on line when you want to fly, sometimes there's no-one around and you may as well use FS9s ATC (heaven forbid!!)You'll need 2 bits of software (plus FS and PMDG aircraft)1. Squawkbox 3 (with a vatsim registration)2. Either servinfo or whazup. (I use servinfo)Run servinfo and find where the action is, then plan a flight around that area.When you have read the Squawkbox 3 user guide http://squawkbox.ca/doc/start/quickstart.php from front to back and have it setup including a full speaker/microphone setup you just start FS and run SB3 enter your flight plan details and connect.Now all you have to do is remember the order you have to speak to people and what you have to say.You might find it more useful to search for your answers in the SB3 forum athttp://squawkbox.ca/forum/Hope this helps?Glen

They use there own IVAP program to connect up with and submit you flight plans which is very user freindly + TeamSpeak and Servinfo.See you in the skies.......BobbySA767 FTGhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg"I'm 61 and still waiting for my wings to grow!"
