  4. Dear VATSIM Members, The VATSIM Caribbean Division is one of the most diverse in the Americas. With over 30 different countries or decencies, it can be a challenge selecting divisional standards that benefit all the major facilities within the Caribbean. It has been a primary goal of my team and I to re-focus our division to serve our facilities to our best ability. In my professional life, I am a marketing director for a company with over 11,000 employees. During that time, I learned that supporting a diverse team starts at the very bottom: creating a consistent brand experience for

  17. Dear VATSIM users, The Caribbean Division has undergone much construction. During this exciting time, we have re-designed at least 5 different websites, progressed on a complete restructure of our training program, designed new logos, created a marketing and PR position, and began the preparation to launch massive event campaigns. While this has gone on, I have been acting as the Curacao FIR chief, providing training to controllers in that region. It has become clear that a deputy director is needed in the VATCAR Division to manage the restructuring and management tasks. After carefu

  18. Dear VATMENA Members, It is with profound sorrow that I announce, on behalf of Ahmed Yehia and myself, that we have resigned from our positions as VATMENA1 and VATMENA2, respectively and effective immediately. Although we are sad to leave the divisional staff team, we believe that this is the right time for us to step down from the divisional leadership, hoping to allow the chance for new blood to inject new ideas into the division, ensuring its sustainability. When Ahmed and I were recruited into the divisional management team, almost 15 months ago, the division faced many problems.

  19. Honestly, I do like where this original poster's head is. Instead of just plowing forward into Cross The Pond with a semi-functional aircraft, he's advocating getting to know those aircraft's limitations and suggesting workarounds. Trust me, I flew my first CTP with the FSX default 747 (yes, REALLY!) and so I know how much extra work it is to fly a plane in an event that doesn't do as much as everyone else's does. That being said, all of the above advice boils down to one thing: DO NOT FLY CTP IN AN AIRCRAFT YOU ARE NOT INTENSELY FAMILIAR WITH. And I don't just mean the aircraft in gen

  20. Simple. DON'T use MSFS in this upcoming CTP. The default airliners aren't quite there just yet to handle the advanced navigation pilots will be expected to do in this event. It's going to cause unneeded stress on both pilot and controller.

Hello Dear Teams, I want to share with you a journey that I currently flying with MSFS through Europe: I am currently parking at Athens and have flown legs 1 to 9, while 10 to 14 are still left to fly. Just wanted to drop by here and say thank you for the warm hospitality and services I'm experiencing, it's a pleasure. All flights are documented in video clips and reported, among real tour guides and tour over cities flights, in a Facebook blog opened for it at Otrokovice to Haifa Virtual Flight Trip with a Cessna 152.

  32. I know they are very much aware of it. I personally believe that we fall short here as a market minority. Also, "fixing" IFR and the navigational issues is a much larger task than fixing a commonly requested minuscule feature. I know Navigraph is aware and talking with Asobo, and I am sure they'll come up with a solution to this, but unfortunately, things take time.. I would very much recommend the A320 mod though, there's finally airway implementation coming very very soon and plenty of bug fixes and new features coming every release.

  33. I think AVsim thread started well, but then degenerated a bit (or a lot...). I am not sure if it would have helped at all, even if everybody there would have stated "Yeah, MSFS IFR sucks." I think everyone in that thread know the limitations currently in MSFS. But there is not much they can do, but eiither bash MSFS or just try to live with it. With current limitations. So either you keep bombarding M$ about the issues, or fly with some other simulator and wait for the fixes. Having a high blood pressure even for this is not healthy. Because I guess the fixes will take quite a long t

I didn't realize I needed clearance from miami center to take off, and got a private message from him. Trying to tab out to respond and my game crashed (thanks windows). Sorry to whoever that controller was, I wasn't trying to ignore your message 😭

  37. If your aircraft is not able to maintain a Target Mach Number, you can calculate the IAS (indicated airspeed) that is needed to maintain a given Mach Number. https://aerotoolbox.com/airspeed-conversions/ In this converter enter your current altitude in feet activate and insert the temperature difference from ISA (international standard atmosphere). E.g. if you are at FL350 the ISA temperature is about -54 deg C static air temperature (SAT). Determine your current SAT and then enter the difference from the indicated ISA. Do not mistake it with the measured total air temper

  47. It's once again time for the annual Worldflight charity event! Departing on October 31st, participants will circumnavigate the globe in just seven days, and they need your help! To ensure full ATC coverage during the event, Worldflight is recruiting a team of devoted and experienced controllers who can step in should local controllers be unavailable. Being a part of the Worldflight ATC team is independent of your assigned division, meaning you can control wherever needed at the time. Controlling during Worldflight is an exciting opportunity to help support a noble cause! Interes
