  1. The field is largely male dominated. With the way that some folks act however, it's no wonder that we lack many females in the organization
  2. http://forum.vatusa.net/index.php?showtopic=4699 They are currently undergoing a host change and everything should be back up within the next day or two. Thanks for your patience and willingness to help!
  3. When you've managed to confuse the training director, you know you're in trouble!
  4. I DO use an alias file as a SUP because it simply makes things easier. I mean honestly, I'm going to type the same thing anyways where I introduce myself (Except maybe change a word or two) so why not use an alias, especially if you're the only SUP online (or maybe one of two) and there are 5/6 working conflicts. I do want to make the point that I approach scenarios differently if I understand the problem (controller or pilot explains it via the wallop). I don't ask what the problem is but ask if they have anything further to add to their wallop because a lot of folks shorten it in the wallo
  5. Are you keying in the full squawk code (as in typing in 2000) instead of just changing the 12 to 20 from the first two numbers?
  6. At ZTL (and several other ARTCCs), the way around the text limit is usually done by sending 2 (or more) messages. Leaving the sim to pick up the PDC is certainly NOT required. If you cannot or do not want to open a new window or use a secondary device for whatever reason, do not by any means feel obligated to do so.
  7. I suggest that you look up a module called "Track IR". It's a little expensive and certainly takes getting used to but I think it's worth it. It sort of moves the screen as you move your head with a sensor that is attached to your headset or a hat.
  8. Visual approaches are just that...visual. By definition, you rely a lot less on the instruments for such an approach. Visual approaches are usually hand flown in (sometimes the autopilot is used to manage the heading and/or altitude until a certain point on the approach). As far as the FMC goes, the option to select would be the one that just simply said "RWY31" or "31" without the ILS /RNAV/VOR/etc., before the runway number. I always plug in the localizer information when applicable, even when I fly a visual approach. PAPI lights are used when applicable also to manage the rate of des
  9. Just beacuse they have some limited web problems, does not mean it's the end of the world and everything is closed. It's the internet...sadly it doesn't work 100% of the time.
  10. I don't think US Airways/American flies the citation x.
  11. It's always nice to recieve feedback of any sort. I suggest that you head over to the ZJX website and fill out the feedback form so that they get to see it for sure. http://www.zjxartcc.com/?p=13
  12. With the technology improving at VAs, a custom system is the way to go.
  13. Just thought I would share this information with our VAs here on VATSIM. Might be a good opportunity for some folks but the deadline is coming up soon. http://skyblueradio.com/?p=1474
  14. I'm going back into my hole! See ya later! Don't go through the forums and try to nitpick if you have worked long hours on little sleep
  15. I don't see the words "radar contact" in that quote. Maybe we're talking about different posts?
  16. And now you don't have an accurate radar identification and you crash into another aircraft.
  17. File feedback...better yet, contact their Air Traffic Manager by e-mail. This isn't acceptable behavior in my opinion (especially from an I1 who should know the virtue of patience when it comes to learning proper procedures).
  18. One of the virtual airlines that I'm a part of had to do this. Our owners lawyer contacted their legal department and got it approved and based off of what I have read with our incident, it's best to have your lawyer/legal team contact theirs. It's looked upon a lot better if an actual bar certified lawyer does it because they are more likely to know what to say (such as making sure to tell them that it is a non-for-profit hobby organization) and having some random person contact the airline is less likely to gain the attention of the people/department that you need to speak with [they will
  19. You can e-mail it to r.lara (at) vatsim.net Thanks.
  20. We are in the early stages of working on a newer program that will have a much better and more simple user interface. Hopefully this will resolve small issues such as the one you described.
  21. The concept isn't the first of it's kind but the idea is still amazing non the less. Keep up the great work Robbie and I'll be following your progress.
  22. I haven't really heard of a VA like that only because a lot of folks have other priorities (work, school, etc.,) that would keep them from flying during required times. The idea is good for realism purposes but I personally haven't found or heard of such a VA. Maybe someone else can help?
  23. This is coming from a VATSIM Facebook page admin (me), as long as the post is respectful and it doesn't get out of hand (like posting every day), any VA is welcome to post in there just like they are welcome to post in the VA News section of these forums.
