Basics

Please note that VATSIM is not a game even FSX, it is for training sessions or virtual flying network provided with ATC, When you connect to VATSIM you need to know basic ATC knowledge and you need to know your aircraft very well.

 

  • Vatsim depends on real-life charts
  • STARS (Standard Terminal arrival routes)
  • SIDS (Standard Instrumental departures)

Without this then you will stay on the ground no matter what, You need to file a flight plan that is LEGIT with the AIRAC cycle.

What is AIRAC?

AIRAC is what they use like maps but it updates depending with routes from real life our current AIRAC is 1505, this can be downloaded from Navigraph and it updates depending on your subscription.

Pilots

Rules apply! You must read-back all thats been said by the ATC (e.g ATC: UAE123 Cleared to Dubai via ALSEM1E Departure (SID) 36R, squawk 2423. PILOT: Cleared to Dubai using ALSEM1E departure, 36R, SQUAWK 2423. ATC: Read-back is correct call for P/S

1) why reinvent the wheel when its already there ?

2) your beginner's guide is wrong

e.g. the statement

Without this then you will stay on the ground no matter what, You need to file a flight plan that is LEGIT with the AIRAC cycle.

 

is completely wrong. Two wrong facts in one sentence.

 

Don't misunderstand my post as critique, its a purely technical reply.
