  1. And more news about the VATSEA server. I just get in touch with Bowen and as far as I know the VATSEA server is under migration. It is now available but will be very slow sometimes. The process may take 24 hours and hopefully everything will be back to normal soon. Regards, William Woo
  2. The old forum in the VATASIA site is closed as we'll use VATSIM's forum for discussion. The previous problem is partly due to the Login/Register link still enabled and being attacked. We got lot's of SPAM message. Now all these links are removed. The VATASIA site is now back online. Hopefully no more SPAM message as we disabled the forum already. However, some other function of the site still based on the database and we need some time to redesign the site. The current data is still keep in the database but will not be use in anyway until we redevelop the site. William Woo
  3. I think you should choose the neighbour VATIND - India. Write to the group in vPIA who is now working on the division and see what they can offer. William Woo
  4. I think it is all right to post it here as this event will fly into a Asia division William Woo

  10. Can you email me ([email protected] or [email protected])? It is always a possibility to have VATSIM-Parkistan. The difficulties we have is how to get peoplet to gather and keep it running. The are so many people asking for starting various divison here but most of it cannot substain for a few months. William Woo
  11. If anyone happen to stopover in HKG, you can alway email me and I'll try my best to schedule a meeting with you. I work in shift and have irregular working hours so I need some time to schedule everythings. Cheers, William Woo
  12. But we only got some request of transfer into Asia from you few months ago. We don't get any suggestion or plan on such issue so far. Please let me know if you have any bright idea. Furthermore, I have never heard of, not to say endorsed, a "VATSIM Afghanistan/Pakistan developmental team". I have no idea what is this team and it must not be anything official in VATASIA yet. Please clarify. William Woo VATSIM Asia Region Region Director.
  13. Dear simmers, On 24/10/2009, VATSIM Hong Kong vACC (under VATSEA) co-organized with a local charity group (Hong Kong Air Cadets Corps) to host a Flight Simulation Symposium 2009. One of the members of VATSIM Hong Kong team produces a superb video clip of our old Kai Tak airport for this symposium. Although it is closed in 1998, many flight simmer still want to come back and fly the famous IGS13 approach. The airport, is now demolished completely in real, still exist in Flight Sim world and we can still feed in anyone if being asked. May I present this video again, dedicated to anyone who worked for Kai Tak, or even one who used it before and still remember it? Enjoy this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaCK55DlLiU Thanks to the producer: Mr. Alton Yeung! Cheers, William Woo VATSIM Asia RD
