The VATSIM Executive Committee (EC) is responsible for the operations of the virtual airspace around the world.

The Executive Committee (EC) consists of six Regional Directors (RD), one from each of the six regions within VATSIM.

Each RD manages the airspace which has been delegated to them, within the region are Divisions. The EC works as a team to generate policies that have worldwide impact, such as the Global ATIS Policy and Global Rating Policy [GRP]. Each EC member is allowed one vote, regardless of region size. RDs consult with their division leaders on matters prior to voting to ensure that our divisional staffs' needs are met.

Our goal is to make VATSIM a helpful and friendly environment for all to enjoy. We are extremely proud of our membership and can assure you that our members will provide unmatched ATC services and the very best Virtual Airlines to be found anywhere.
