  1. A new virtual flight tracking site for VATSIM has been released, allowing interested parties to follow flights with an unprecendented level of detail. SimStatus allows users to track individual flights with accurate ETAs, expected landing runways, live radar and detailed flight information similar to that which might be seen on real-world tracking sites. Pilots looking for inspiration can also see live statistics such as popular airports and routes right now, VATSIM ATC availability, weather information and active runways based on real-time weather and operations. For more information visit the SimStatus website or Facebook page.
  2. The organisers of Connexion 2017 are pleased to announce the latest confirmed programme items for the weekend of 29th and 30th July 2017. In addition to the previously announced items, we are pleased to provide further information below (In no particular order) A day in the life of… a Heathrow Tower Controller A long-standing VATSIM member and real-world Heathrow Tower Controller will give a perspective from the control tower of one of the busiest airports in Europe. We will find out about the logistics, planning necessary to accommodate nearly 1,300 flights each day, bringing over 200,000 people through the airport. BAVirtual The CEO of BAVirtual will present to us the latest goings-on within one of the community’s longest standing virtual airlines. As they tackle new challenges such as pilot training it will be fascinating to hear this perspective. Pilot’s Perspective: Life on the other side of the scope One of VATSIM’s experienced Enroute Controllers will detail the tools and techniques used to keep traffic flowing safely and efficiently. This session will provide useful situational awareness for pilot’s flying in complex and busy airspace during their future flights. A day in the life of… a Eurocontrol Controller A VATSIM member and current Enroute Controller in Europe will present a perspective of life from the Maastricht UACC. This center handles approx. 5000 flights per day and this presentation will touch on some of the challenges involved in this operation. Workshop: Controlling Techniques Learn some of the tricks of the trade in enroute and approach controlling with this interactive and informative workshop for controllers. Panel Discussion: VATSIM and careers in aviation Three members of our community, one who is a Pilot for a large European business jet operator, another a Flight Safety Investigator for a UK based airline and the third an Air Traffic Controller will discuss how their time on VATSIM has influenced and affected their real-life career paths and in addition will provide some advice for those wishing to follow in their footsteps. Please note: this is not a definitive list other content will be added in the coming weeks and may be subject to alteration without notice.

  4. I'm new to VATSIM ATC and have a headset. Done a few flights and I like the experience. However, I would like the headset to only play ATC sounds - NOT ambient plane sounds (i.e., engines, AC, cabin announcements, etc.) Essentially, when using the headset all sounds play through the headset and none through the speakers. Is there a way in X-Plane 10.50/Windows 10 to have headset only hear ATC and cpu speakers play everything else?
  5. I would like to give a big shoutout to Dimitri Ntistis for his extraordinary help in guiding me safely down to LGIO in what one would call nothing less than extraordinary conditions to fly in. My flight started of well at Skiathos, some clouds around but no biggy... once around 40 nm east of LGIO, I went in full IMC with major turbulance and major winds of up to 30-40 kts with lightning. As you might imagine, it wouldnt be a biggy if I haven't picked C-47 to fly in... which comes without auto pilot. So there I was, drifting though the wind like a plastic bag with Athens Radar being my eyes and only hope for survival. With my constant updrafts and downdrafts, and a bit of side toss - he upheld his patience for me and guided me down safely.... Even with the passangers puking around, a safe landing is better than no landing at all! This was by far the most difficult landing I've ever had to make. Best regards to you all vatsim and ivao aviators alike! /drago, JAT758
  6. We are planning to launch a new Virtual Airline in the Caribbean. At this moment we are brainstorming on what the community wants. The community is YOU. So come over to our forum and share your thoughts. Registration to the forum is free and not an application for the VA. Some points we are discussing about: - What should be the name of the VA - Which ACARS system should we use - Which software for the website - Which aircrafts should be in the fleet - Should we use a ranking and/or financial module - And many other questions that will rises So join the conversation to build a VA, for the community and by the community.

  8. Okay so basically, in April this year I started playing VATSIM through FSINN and everything was smooth and I learnt so much and was really enjoying my flying and interacting with other pilots and atc. Right, so I uninstalled some PMDG and Airbus X aircraft and other addon software. Then, whenever I tried to load FSX up it would give me FSINN runtime errors, specifically runtime error 372. I stopped playing about three months ago and left it. About a week ago I opened FSX to try and enjoy a flight but the same errors still occurred. I uninstalled all my addons i.e aircraft, scenery etc. Then uninstalled FSINN and copilot. Tried reinstalling FSINN; still the same errors. Even though I get these errors I can go into free flight but I cannot connect to VATSIM. Then I uninstalled FSX. So I reinstalled FSX on my other hard drive. Tried to install FSINN and copilot again, the same errors. Here are the images of the errors that come up when I start FSX (as an admin). this one comes up an additional two times when I click ok. then this one. then this one then fsx loads up and this one comes up finally I would be eternally grateful if anybody could help me solve this. Also, whenever I reinstall FSINN, I do not get asked for my credentials or VATSIM credentials i.e callsign, vatsim login. Thanks!
  9. Basically, I'm a major newbie in VATSIM and I rarely use it from the complexity of it but I thought I'd give it ago but the one thing that really confuses is me is when no Air traffic controllers are covering the air space you are in how are you meant to work out when you need to start descending and how are you meant to work out the heading when you're about to go on approach.
  10. Platinum Airways announces that it is adding online flying to its offering. The very virtual Open Skies airline will seek affiliation with VATSIM as soon as its online membership meets the online flying platform’s requirements. In its three years of existence, Platinum Airways has established itself as a high content and low barrier virtual airline that focuses on its pilots and not on replicating a real-world airline. As the pioneer of Open Skies in the world of virtual airlines, Platinum Airways allows its pilots to fly the mission of their choice with the aircraft of their choice at the time of their choice. By default, Platinum Airways has always been an offline VA, as it trusted its pilots to file correct PIREPs. As several aspiring members indicated over the past months that they prefer an online experience, Platinum Airways management has decided to add online to its offering. Platinum Airways’ default policy remains that it is an offline airline. However, in order to provide corporate support to pilots who have or would like to join an online network, Platinum Airways will seek VA affiliation with VATSIM once it meets the online flying platform’s membership requirements for virtual airlines. Existing and aspiring members are invited to state whether they should be considered offline or online pilots. In support, Platinum Airways will appoint an online manager and will enable the online membership to communicate special events and other activities via the Platinum Airways website. Platinum Airways hopes that by removing this potential barrier, it will be in a position to attract a pilots segment that it was unable to service until now. About Platinum Airways: Keen to deliver on its mission to keep the fun in the hobby, Platinum Airways is probably the only virtual airline to combine an Open Skies policy, allowing its pilots to fly any mission of their choice with the aircraft of their choice at the time of their choice, with a strategic hub network. The carefully selected hubs, Newark (KEWR), Dallas-Fort Worth (KDFW), Vancouver (CYVR), Perth (YPPH) and Brussels (EBBR), should be attractive to a global membership. In addition, Platinum Airways offers its pilots an often cheeky Destination of the Week, Relief, Military and Cargo missions and a Flight Dispatch division. Sticking to the KISS principle (Keep It Straight and Simple), Platinum Airways hosts an active forum and a screenshot of the week competition, with the winner providing the main picture on its home page for the next week. For more information, please visit www.platinumairways.org or mail info [at] platinumairways.org.
  11. alMirath Arabian Airlines is now hiring vEmployees™ for both the Operations and Executive departments of the company! Interested, check out http://vcareers.arabianva.com to view and apply for open positions!
  12. welcome to a real thread about Cross the Pond, and not a whinge about release dates of service packs! So the day approaches, Saturday 12th of October 2013. Expect VATSIM to light up with hundreds of pilots, dozens of ATC positions including the non-radar Oceanic procedural airspace and heaps of PMDG 777's! Although the real world usually sees only westbound traffic in the daylight(UTC) hours, Vatsim will 'flip the clock 12 hours' and push everyone through Eastbound on the previous nights NAT Tracks (or something highly resembling them). This is so the flyin takes place on Saturday, and not in the wee hours of the morning. Why? Because they want AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE to participate in the event, and not a ghost town of night owls. What time? from about 10:00z (UTC) with departures running for about 5 hours, flights taking around 8 hours. Where? Departure Airports: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport - KATL Boston Logan International Airport - KBOS Detroit Metropolitan Airport - KDTW Washington Dulles International Airport - KIAD Arrival Airports: Frankfurt/Main Airport - EDDF London Heathrow Airport - EGLL Amsterdam Schiphol Airport - EHAM Vienna International Airport - LOWW Oceanic Entry Slots (and by extension airport departure slots) have been booked for most of the NAT tracks. These have been booked out. If you don't have a slot you can still participate, however you will likely be directed to plan via a specific NAT track tracking track to track (tautology ahoy!). One hopes the specific "no booking needed" NAT routing will be made available on the website http://ctp.vatsim-uk.co.uk/pilot-area/ but it may turn out only to be buried deep in the Vatsim forum flyin thread. http://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=61671 How? Watch this AWESOME documentary from NATS, the Air Traffic Control provider for the UK which provides very detailed information on how Procedural ATC happens in the North Atlantic. See the story from both sides regarding the how, and the why. The video will answer questions like: Why do you need to receive a Clearance to enter the NAT when you already received clearance before you departed? Why do you need to provide a position report to Air Traffic Control every time you pass a waypoint in the Gander or Shanwick control area? Why won't the controller let me make my step climb at the optimum point? and what should I do if I the predicted crossing time of the next waypoint just changed on my FMS? This and more are answered in the video!
  13. Does Vatsim make any effort to keep hubs manned? I know they place a lot of controls on training. Just wondering if they also put controls on providing a level of service at particular airports. Gregg
  14. This year was American Pacific Group's second annual Jimmy Edwards Memorial Flight event. We would like to express our sincere thanks to VATSIM, Chicago ARTCC and our community of pilots.

  15. Here is the situation.I have a decent computer with allot of relatively good equipment/ see my signature belowThe machine is O.C'd i7 965 3.2 @ 4,2 stableI have a video card with 3 gb memory 580gtx video card and a second older cardI start the sim fsx 1,2 Accel . I load up the pmdg 737 ngx ( which by the way is outstanding !)I sit at cyyz and do some flight planning, ( frame rates +/- 25 ). Im using the external limiter and ******* tweaks.Go Online with vatsim and prep for a filghtAs I plan my flight and after about 10 mins of connection to vatsim , I will go to about 4-5 fpsNot even flyable!So I tried this same scenario but at other airports and it is the same thing.I even tried disconnecting from the vatsim network and the frame rates did not come back. So I dont think it is in anyway the networkThe only think that worked was to change aircraft. ( i used a ms lear jet once frames dropped ) and the frames can right backI then changed back to the pmdg and the frame stayed high.Now I dont know this but somehow as the plane sits at an airport, something about the pmdg just bogs down the sim over time . All I can tell you is from this limited experimentation something is just not rightI have recently updated to the most recent sp. for pmdg ngx and I still have the same situationI know there will be someone here with some ideasI have to admit it is all gets a bit frustrating!Peterpkofman@rogers.com

  21. I've tried researching a fix for this but no joy. It would seem that the Hawker radios do not connect with VATSIM using the vPilot client. (Unknown if other clients work). Has anyone found a fix for this issue?

  24. I am new to VATSIM and just did my first flight today which was a success however, I am unable to hear ATC or communicate with ATC by voice. I had to use the chat window for the entire flight. I read the FAQ section on Apollo3 regarding sound with FSINN and didn't come up with any results. I also did some forum searching but didn't find anything that fixed my problem. I downloaded TeamSpeak and my microphone is working fine with a hot key. But when I am connected to Vatsim with FSINN I cannot hear any ATC communication and I can't even hear the "tone" when I press the hot key to speak. I have checked all volume settings and everything is turned up. I also excluded FSFDT in my anti virus. Any help here would be greatly appreciated. I am using Logitech 313 speakers and a audio-technica headset. Also using Envy HD audio control panel. Please help! Thank you!
