  1. Here's what it looks like: http://prntscr.com/uple4u and http://prntscr.com/uplfqp
  2. It didn't happen as much when I was enroute, so that could be the case. Perhaps a model matching issue?
  3. I keep getting this error: http://prntscr.com/up01lu. Everything is working as normal but that error keeps coming up. Any way to get rid of this?
  4. I've heard a lot of unique, funny, and weird things said on the network while controlling. One thing that a small portion of pilots say to me is something I find particularly weird is requesting a clearance "as filed." I find this weird, and also ironic, because in some of these instances they have a bad route and they need an amendment to their flight plan. Just thought I'd throw it out there: Requesting a clearance "as filed" doesn't really change the odds of getting a new route if one is needed. I'd really like to ask why some pilots feel this is something worth saying. I'd love to hear som

  6. Does anyone know if VRC and/or Euroscope can be used on a computer running Chrome OS? Thanks in advance
  7. To be honest, I don't know of any headsets out there that work on your phone and on your computer for VATSIM. I used to play a lot of COD, so getting a headset that can pick up the slightest of sounds on your computer was appropriate for me, and because of the sometimes gargled voices on the network, I think it's appropriate for you. Think Turtle Beaches, Astros, etc. I'd stop using the apple earphones on your computer, as well as anything that just utilizes your headphone jack. Also, don't mess around with splitters for your microphone. As long as you purchase a headset that connects t
  8. VATSpy is a standalone program which shows all connections (both pilot and ATC) to the network. By using this program, you'll know who is flying and controlling as well as where. You don't need it to connect to the network.
  9. Calling all VATSIM Pilots! Fly Monarch Virtual is now recruiting pilots! When the real-world Monarch Airlines collapsed in October 2017, we had a vision. That vision was to continue the legacy of one of the United Kingdom's most successful airlines. Our primary goals are to simulate the real-world Monarch Airlines, but to also continue its legacy by establishing a continuing storyline of success. By becoming a pilot with Fly Monarch Virtual, here is what you can expect. 1. A Community Atmosphere We're social here at Fly Monarch Virtual. We care about our pilot base. This is why we hav
  10. Personally, I think S1 should be ground and tower at minor airports, then S2 should move to major airports, with S3 merging the two with approach. There's not much merit to just doing ground. Tower is much better then anything else in my opinion.
  11. They should send it over text as a courtesy. I'm [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming you're using vPilot. So go into vPilot > Flight Plan > Fetch From Server. The amended route, cruise altitude, etc. will turn up after doing that. If you get nothing, the controller has not amended anything. The original plan can be pulled up in vPilot/other pilot client. Remember the fetch from server button for any amendments you think were made. If you aren't putting in a route, double-check what you are and aren't filing. If you're flying IFR, you must put in a route. If you're flying from KJFK-KBOS,
  12. Greetings to all, I am very excited to share with all of you that Flex Virtual is actively seeking out pilots and staff!

  13. In some ARTCCs, I can most certainly agree there is little training staff around. That is a problem not many people are willing to get their hands dirty. An instructor, unlike a video, can answer mostly any of one's questions about what something means. Another thing is that reducing the time spent with an instructor, many fear, will reduce the quality of the controllers on VATSIM. It seems like quantity over quality here. Pilots can hop right on, controllers can't, therefore, a reasonable expectation for quality of controllers should be there for us. I think every ARTCC in VATUSA has
  14. I have no clue, as I haven't flown over there lately. In the case of Dubai, try here: http://uae-vacc.net/cdocomeents. No clue if it will be of any use to you. If there are no preferred altitudes, just [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume you can fly at any appropriate flight level.
  15. From a pilot's standpoint, a maximum cruise altitude varies with each aircraft you fly. A quick Google search will give you an answer for that. From an ATC standpoint, maximum cruise altitudes vary. For example, in a LOA (Letter of Agreement), certain routes between certain ARTCCs or vACCs often will include a maximum altitude. If these docomeents don't exist, then in theory, you could go as high as you want, with what's below of course. You can find this out by visiting the vACC's website. Another thing to remember is direction of flight. If the general direction of your flight takes
