VATSIM Prepares for Worldflight 2016

VATSIM is excited to welcome Worldflight 2016 to its network again this year.

Worldflight is an annual charity event in which a number of teams based in full-sized flight simulators around the globe fly a pre-defined route to visit dozens of VATSIM airports around the world. The beauty of the event: first, that local VATSIM facilities provide full air traffic control coverage for the event and all VATSIM pilots are invited to fly with us; second, that the event raises thousands for a number of worthy charities.
