  1. Hello all, We are recruiting a Membership Director for VATéir. More information available on our forums: https://forums.vateir.org/index.php?/topic/83-vacancy-membership-director-accirl6
  2. On the 17th of August 2019, VATSIM UK and VATéir will host the Dublin to Manchester citypair from 1700z. The hop across the Irish sea is one of the shortest commercial routes done by a major airline in Europe, so you can do as many hops as you can manage, all with excellent ATC for your journey. Join the m[Mod - Happy Thoughts]es jumping between the two major airports on Saturday, August the 17th and experience top cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] ATC along the way! See you there.

  3. VATéir's biggest event of the year is fast approaching - The Saint Patrick's Day Fly-in! On Friday, the 15th of March, we'll begin to open up full ATC cover for all of Ireland at 1900z. Dublin (EIDW), Cork (EICK) and Shannon (EINN) will have full ATC cover, as well as the regional airports. Pilots will have the chance to pick any airport around the country to fly into, be it early Friday morning from America's East-coast, or a few hops to neighbouring Europe - the choice of airport is up to you! One thing is certain; on your arrival or departure from Irish soil, you'll be welcomed by our friendly and professional ATC to kick-start your Saint Patrick's Day celebrations! Make Ireland your base for Friday the 15th of March and turn VATSIM greeeen!
  4. At peak times in real life, Dublin airport handles a departure or arrival every 45 seconds. This doesn't happen easily. Pilots must be fully ready for departure at the holding point, and when cleared to line up and depart, do so with no delay, whilst looking down the endless stream of strobes on approach. The runway operations at Dublin will be intense, challenging, and great fun for everyone. Keep Saturday the 1st of December free for this event, fly between Dublin and your favourite airport, and enjoy the full staffing of ATC from VATeir. Charts are needed. Our Pilot Information Booklet will make the event much more realistic.

  6. A few from last night on Shannon... 'RYR123, Speed 260 indicated please' RYR123: 'Negative' 'RYR123, Speed 260 knots' RYR123: 'Indicated is 290 knots' 'RYR123, I know, speed 260 knots now instead.' RYR123: 'OK then 260...' And followed by this, a nice debate began on a busy frequency. Bearing in mind this pilot had cut 100 miles from his route by going direct to the FAF, with 5 aircraft inbound to the same aerodrome under my control. 'EINABC, You're not following your arrival route, turn right heading 300 for sequencing.' EINABC: 'We are going to [runway] 06' (24 was active, so you can imagine the problems this would've caused.) 'EINABC, Runway 24 is active, right heading 300 degrees' EINABC: 'ok but can we take 06?' 'EINABC, Negative, runway 24 is active, turn right now heading 310 degrees' EINABC: Whatever you say Would prefer 06' 'EINABC, turn right immediately heading 330 degrees, you will be landing on runway 24, ILS approach' He eventually turned, somewhere over the States.
  7. Controlling EICK_APP. Dublin Radar observing.
  8. After looking, i've figured it out I think, its in brackets under the given one in the flight strip isnt it?
  9. Hello everybody, I have a question about squawk codes: When you [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ign an aircraft a squawk in an IFR clearance and you insert it under the [Mod - Happy Thoughts]R box in the ''Departure List'', how do you check if an aircraft is squawking that code you gave him? Regards, Cathal
  10. Definitely agree with Johan, while i was controlling EIDW yesterday there was a new pilot flying in, he was getting quite worked up about all the information i was giving him, but, if the controller stays calm, it re[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ures the pilot. Having your first flight is probably the one you receive the most knowledge from and it, hopefully, will help the pilot enjoy the flight and fly again if the controller is kind and calm. Just my thoughts, Best regards, Cathal
