VATSIM North America is dedicated to providing quality air traffic control services, while preserving a fun and friendly environment for both controllers and pilots alike. We are consistently amongst the most-staffed and most-visited airspace anywhere on VATSIM.
Our controllers’ jurisdiction encompasses over 30 countries, and approximately 24 million square miles of oceanic airspace; equating to over 80% of the world’s controlled oceanic airspace, and over 15% of the earth’s total surface area. Our off-network counterparts lay claim to 23 of the world’s 30 busiest airports by traffic volume and VATSIM controllers handle much of the same, seeing over 500,000 operations yearly in our airspace.
