  1. Hello, I recently have gotten back into Flight Simulation on VATSIM and have been enjoying it a lot. To improve my performance, I have moved to a newer computer and have reinstalled all the necessary software including vPilot. However, after going through the necessary setup, and opening FSX, when I try to connect to the server, it gives the the error "Network error: Client authentication response timeout" following which I get disconnected from the server. I don't have a solution to this problem. I have tried running both FSX and vPilot on Administrator, reinstalled it a couple of times, and even try the recommended compatibility settings. However none of these have produced and results. I am out of options and hope someone here can help me fix this problem and get back to the sky's. Regards, CaptainMidway

    Questions

    HI so am new to Vatsim and I was wondering if anyone knows what the busiest General Aviation airports are and which one often have active ATC
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  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. 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.
  9. What are the differences between Desk Pilot Free and Professional? Is it mostly graphical interfaces or does it impact the ability to read control inputs on the aircraft, etc.? Also, a friend and I used Desk Pilot with P3D and it worked pretty smoothly.
  10. Hey all PLEASE HELP : I can't connect FSLabs a320 with Vatsim using P3D simulator, I don't know how But I know its possible. When i get to Vatsim vPilot app on the Settings I don't find FSLabs a320 listed with the 130 other aircrafts even FSLabs a320 Installed on P3D and Launched and the Aircraft is fully ready for Pushback and Startup. I need your help on this one because I see many videos are on Youtube using FSLabs a320 on P3D connecting with Vatsim. I hope get responds on this one pretty soon Thanks
  11. Are you looking for a challenge? Do you own a copy of Microsoft FSX (Boxed), FSX-SE or Prepar3D? Do you hold VATSIM P2 and P3 ratings OR have real-world flying experience? If so, BAVirtual would like to hear from you! We currently offer training towards VATSIM ratings P1, P2 and P3 and have a P5 course launching early this year. As such, we're looking for enthusiastic and knowledgeable simmers to join our team of volunteer instructors! Our Initial Flying Training course is based largely on the real UK PPL syllabus with a focus on VFR navigation, principles of flight and basic general handling. It results in VATSIM P2 and P3 ratings for the student, and we’ve had a glowing review from the VATSIM PTD with lots of praise for the quality of our material and instruction. As you might imagine, interest from students is high and we’ve got quite a waiting list building up! So I’m looking for more instructors to come on board and join our little team. Our instructors work one-on-one with students, delivering live flight instruction via JoinFS Shared Cockpit. The role would be ideally suited to someone with real-world flying experience at PPL or greater level looking to give something back to the FS community, but I’m just as keen to hear from enthusiastic amateurs (like myself!) -- commitment and a passion for helping others are the main criteria. In return, you’ll have a fantastic, rewarding experience -- there’s no feeling quite like that moment when you figure out the cause of a student’s struggles, show them how to fix it and see them “click”! It’s a great way to meet other like-minded people, give something back to the community and further develop your own skills and knowledge. We naturally provide a full suite of instructor support materials, lesson plans and resources to help you and your students get the most out of the course. Our team is incredibly knowledgeable and contains a vast amount of real and sim flying experience. Our standards are high, but we’re committed to helping you develop and succeed as an instructor, we’re an incredibly supportive bunch and we have a lot of fun together as well. If you think you might be interested -- no need to commit to anything immediately -- you can PM me here, or drop me an e-mail to training (at) bavirtual dot co do uk. I'm also interested to hear from anyone with a VATSIM P5 rating or relevant real-world experience who would be interested in instructing on our new multi-engine instrument rating course. I look forward to hearing from you!

  13. 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?
  14. Hello Fellas, Would like to attach two videos recorded last week flying real time flights with the 777. One is approaching and landing at Paris CDG While "interesting" winds of storm Doris are in full affect, and the second one is approaching and landing runway 09L at London's Heathrow with a bit of a crosswind. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Please feel free to leave comments about the flight or recording. Enjoy your weekend, Barak
  15. Hi there, I am flying on VATSIM, I don't turn AI traffic on unless I fly online. The problem is some AI models are not visible. I can see some people are flying with an A350 or B787 on VATSpy, but they are not visible in the sim at all. I have been using WOAI for a while, good fps but their AI traffic packages are not sync to realworld airliner, some models are missing (like A350, B77W,B787), and some airlines are not exist any longer. This is what I see in the sim with WOAI, I can see a user is flying a 77W aircraft, his ICAO code is filled correctly in the flightplan. But I can only see him flying a 772. And there is a serious problem, I have collided to an A350 last time when I was on the ground of WSSS. The user flied an A350 on X-plane. I didn't get any red text error in vPilot. And it didn't use default model as a supplementary to fill the blank. Therefore I can not see him in the sim. By the way, he saw me as a DC-10 in his sim(actually I am flying with PMDG 77W). And that leads to an accident. I tried several paywares, I got stutters using UT2, the aircraft models in MT6 are poorly designed and the fps is unacceptale. Therefore I decided to keep up with WOAI, is there a way to have more recent aircrafts (like A350, B789 etc) with WOAI that can be used by vPilot? or solving it using an alternative method? Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Regards, Gordon To clearfy, I didn't literally enable AI traffic. I only use AI while flying online. Some pilot client (like vPilot) will use AI models even it is disabled by default.
  16. Does anybody know how to use COM1 and COM2 at the same time for pilotedge and vatsim in the PMDG737? I can get them to work on there own by the mic square boxes under NAV1. I need this so i can pick up atis information while listening to the controller. P3D PMDG737 -Dillon L.
  17. Hello, I recently purchased mytraffic 6, i am currently using P3D v3.2. On vpilot i try to download the rule set for it and all i get are errors saying how it could not create the model. Also, in the mytraffic communicator, how do you install the trafficdatabasebuilder ? -Dillon L

  21. Hey all, Wondering if anyone else is seeing this. All VATSIM servers status appears down, as is the webpage and forums... everything.
  22. Hello everyone, I've just downloaded some skins for the a2a comanche and wondered how I would pronounce the call sign for VH-DOE in the UK on vatsim? I have previously been using registrations like G-ASGF which would be annunciated "Golf Alpha Sierra Golf Foxtrot" until ATC shorten it, but is this the same with the aforemtioned reg? Many thanks in advance, Kieran
