What is VATSIM
VATSIM is the Virtual Air Traffic Simulation network, connecting people from around the world flying online or acting as virtual Air Traffic Controllers. This completely free network allows aviation enthusiasts the ultimate as-real-as-it-gets experience. Air Traffic Control (ATC) is available in our communities throughout the world, operating as close as possible to the real-life procedures and utilising real-life weather, airport and route data. On VATSIM you can join people on the other side of the planet to fly and control, with nothing more than a home computer.
Many flight simulators are supported by our pilot software including Microsoft FSX, FS9/2004, FS2002, XPlane and P3D. Our Air Traffic Control software is provided free, as is training wherever you wish to become a controller. For those that would like to start flying or would like to improve their skills, training is available as well as plenty of resources and guides to help you get started.
Whether you're new or an experienced flight simmer, VATSIM looks forward to welcoming you to the community and a fantastic hobby. If you wish to join VATSIM, the process is quick and simple. If you wish to know more you can read about the VATSIM network, or have a look at our community forums. As VATSIM is a global flight simulation network, our Region and Divisions around the world have many more websites, resources and community links that you may be interested in.
