  1. This depends on what part of the world you fly in. Most people have subscriptions to navigraph but there are other good free sources as well such as https://chartfox.org (you only need a VATSIM account). What I like about Chart Fox is that if they don’t have the charts available they will link you to the source website where you can download the most updated charts. You will find that most airports in Europe and in the US are in there though.
  2. My recommendation is to take the airport diagram and draw the path that ATC gives you before moving. I will admit that I find U.S. charts easier to follow that some of the European ones but they all follow the same guidelines more or less. This is the taxi diagram for Orlando. If you are parked on Airside 4 and the controller tells you, "Runway 36R taxi via H4, G, E, B, B10. Then what I suggest is to convert that diagram into this before moving. If you don't understand something, clarify. If you get lost along the way, stop and look at the signs and locate yourself on the map. But
  3. AA prefix isn't an appropriate callsign in any country. The system would need to also recognize a valid VFR callsign as well. Additionally, the system wouldn't prevent you from filing, it would just inform you about the appropriate callsigns. After all, one of the tag lines of VATSIM is to Educate not to mention that having an appropriate callsign is important for realism. If you also logged in as AA516 no one would see you correctly because it doesn't exists. Unfortunately, as a controller I can tell you that 99.99% of the times an AA516 shows up, they will use American on the fr
  4. Great job to the team but I highly encourage them to implement a callsign verification feature. Example: If someone attempts to file a flight plan with the callsign: "AA516", the system would prompt (highly encourage) them to change it to "AAL516". I know you can't force them to pick a callsign but some warning and information about real callsigns could benefit new members.
  5. It depends but the team is generally pretty fast. Keep in mind that this is a volunteer network though so give them time to process things.
  6. If one account has a noticeable amount of more hours/ratings than the other, they will try to keep that one active. Especially when you request it. Otherwise, the oldest one will remain active.
  7. Any updates on this? We have 8 Wordpress sites in the division.
  8. This rule was created to prevent someone from having a home division for purposes of gaining ratings and doing all of their hours in another place since that would not be fair to those in the home division that spent time training them. The rule isn't specific as to how it would work when someone transfers. I would assume there's a "leeway" period after a transfer. AFAIK it's not regularly enforced unless it's a clear violation that the person isn't doing controlling in the home division.
  9. Also, make sure that you don't paste your password but type it in. That sometimes causes issues.
  10. Some people prefer to be more private. Not everyone wants their name to be publicly shown and this policy respects that decision. You also have the case with streamers that can get flooded with private messages when their name is recognized. Even with the rule in place for over a year, the majority of members still log in with their full or partial names.
  11. Join us on April 26 for a Crossfire between Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. Featured airports are San Juan (TJSJ), Aguadilla (TJBQ), Punta Cana (MDPC), Santo Domingo (MDSD). The event will be held on 1800-2200Z (2PM-6PM EST). More information will be posted as we get closer to the event.
