VATSIM Hits New Highs

Recommended Posts



Over the past week, VATSIM has seen two huge records broken: for the first time ever, our community saw 2,500 unique members online at the same time and we also saw 10,000 different VATSIM members connect to the network over a 24 hour period.


These are huge figures for the network which has seen significant and steady growth in popularity since the release of Audio for VATSIM last year. It also comes at a time when the network is ramping up for further upgrades to enhance the user experience, including a total overhaul of the pilot ratings system which will include brand new learning material and a basic online knowledge check for new pilots as part of the joining process. VATSIM has also revealed its plans to implement a global events and ATC booking system this year to make it easier for pilots and controllers to plan their online sessions.


These new records come at a time as the community gears up for the biggest online flight simulation event anywhere: Cross The Pond, which takes place on VATSIM this Saturday, 4th April. The technical team have been working hard to ensure the network’s servers are ready for the unprecedented numbers expected this weekend.


Finally, our local VATSIM communities across the world have been ramping up their activities. You can find a summary of planned VATSIM events here.
