  1. 09 January 2021 Dear VATSIM Members, Today we were informed by the team at FLAI, who maintained the most robust model matching solution for our FSX & P3D users, that they are suspending their services with immediate effect. The reasoning for this is a disagreement between FLAI and the Alpha India Group, who have the ownership rights to about 90% of the liveries included in the FLAI package. As a result of this disagreement, Alpha India Group have revoked the permissions for their works to be redistributed via FLAI. FLAI takes having permission to redistr
  2. VATSIM New Year Message As another year draws to a close, we reflect on what has been an extraordinary and unusual year for all of us, wherever in the world we reside. First and foremost, we hope you and your families are safe and well. For our community, 2020 was busy. We clocked over 6.2 million flying hours and 630,000 controlling hours in the last 12 months. And in the summer, VATSIM hit 100,000 active members. In August, we saw the launch of Microsoft Flight Simulator, with VATSIM compatibility from day one. We also re-launched the pilot rating system
  3. 04 December 2020 The Founders and Board of Governors would like to take a few moments to thank our controllers and controller staff members for their hard work thus far in 2020 and their continued selfless contributions to our network. VATSIM would not be the best online aviation network in the world if it were not for the contributions and sacrifices our members who pursue air traffic control ratings make daily. The countless hours one puts into training for a new rating, providing air traffic services on the network for the pilots, and going even further above and beyond by trainin
  4. 29 November 2020 Effective 01 December 2020 a new global ATC policy takes effect that will change the experience for both pilot and air traffic control members. This policy titled “Air Traffic Control Frequency Management and Information Policy” cancels the old Global Controller / ATIS Information policy and provides Air Traffic Controllers the means to take further advantage of Audio for VATSIM’s capabilities to provide a more realistic simulation for both pilots and air traffic control. This policy will allow controllers to operate secondary frequencies for large airspaces a
  5. == UPDATE 3 == T-10 HOURS – FINAL INFORMATION FOR PARTICIPANTS It’s Friday night, which means the routes meeting has wrapped up and various teams from all over the VATSIM network are pulling together final plans. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow! Please do ensure you remind yourself of the important information already posted above in Updates 1 and 2, particularly relating to the requirement for pilots to be able to follow certain instructions during what will be a very busy event. If you are participating in the event, please read this post in its entirety as it
  6. FlightSim Community Survey 2020 Now Online! 13-23 November 2020 Navigraph is conducting a FlightSim Community Survey together with several major addon developers and organizations within the flight simulation community. The survey, the largest of its kind, aims to gauge the prevailing flight simulation trends and users' requests for future development. You can find the survey at vats.im/survey Like previous years, this survey has an emphasis on the major flight simulators such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, Lockeed Martin Prepar3D and Laminar Research X-Plane, but now also in
  7. == UPDATE 2 == T-3 Days - NEW INFORMATION FOR PARTICIPANTS 1. Slots now allocated All event slots for Cross The Pond have now been allocated via the lottery system - congratulations if you secured one! If you entered the lottery and were not successful, please note that you will be considered first in any future Cross The Pond lottery. The reason for the change to the lottery system is to recognise the advantage some members had because of slots being released in preferential timezones, meaning that some of our members were consistently missing out. This method is fairer becaus
  8. Please keep all discussion in the forums about the upcoming CTP in this thread. For slot trading, go to the #ctp-slot-trading channel on the VATSIM Community Discord server by assigning the Cross The Pond role in #role-selection. You can join the Discord at community.vatsim.net.

  9. == UPDATE 1 == Important information for participants for Cross The Pond: Eastbound 2020 VATSIM is looking forward to welcoming you to the next bi-annual Cross The Pond event, which takes place on Saturday 14th November 2020. Cross The Pond has been a VATSIM tradition for many years, and over this time it has grown in popularity, making it by far the busiest day in the VATSIM calendar. This growth has also brought challenges for controllers, pilots and the organisers alike. It is obvious that our community wants the event to continue, so for this reason we are making

  11. Major Revision to VATSIM’s Code of Regulations As previously announced, VATSIM is completing a major change to its governance structure with a primary goal of simplifying the organization’s hierarchy, thus bringing the membership even closer to the Board of Governors and ensuring better collaboration and alignment throughout the organizational structure. Effective 01 October 2020, a new revision of VATSIM’s Code of Regulations (CoR) will go into effect. This revision incorporates twenty-one amendments to the Code of Regulations, the largest single change to this document in VATSIM’s his
  12. 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
  13. 13 September 2020 An Incredible Milestone for VATSIM I am writing to you today to announce and congratulate all VATSIM members on an amazing accomplishment for our network. As of last Saturday, 05 September 2020, VATSIM has eclipsed 100,000 active members! We are in the middle of the busiest development cycle that VATSIM has seen in its almost 20 year history as we continue to work to ensure you, our members, have the best experience possible with your hobby - but it would be remiss if we did not stop and take pause at this accomplishment and what it means.
  14. VATSIM announces Nicola Felini has been elected to VATSIM’s Board of Governors as Vice President, Conflict Resolution. We’re excited to announce that VATSIM North America Region Director, Nicola Felini, has been appointed to the VATSIM Board of Governors as the Vice President, Conflict Resolution. VATSIM strives to maintain consistency and fairness throughout the conflict resolution process, and as such, Nicola will be responsible for reviewing, modernizing, and maintaining all aspects of the Conflict Resolution division. Nicola was appointed to the position of North America Region D
  15. With Microsoft Flight Simulator on final approach, we are excited to announce the release of vPilot version 2.6, adding compatibility for this new simulator. We are aware of a performance issue that was not present during beta testing, where if you run certain types of SimConnect applications (of which vPilot is one) then it causes frame rate reduction and stuttering. We are in contact with Asobo and Microsoft who are investigating, and we'll update you when we have more information. vPilot users will automatically receive an update upon opening the client, whereas new users can fin
