sector file


Recommended Posts

I am using VRC. In the PDF file it said I can download sector files from Vatsim.net

 

I am using

 

Region/Division

 

Europe - United Kingdom

 

On the PDF file

 

Download the radar map for the area you want to observe. These maps are known as sector

files, and are available on the websites of the individual VATSIM divisions (see the links on

the right hand column of www.vatsim.net). The UK sector files can be found at www.vatsimuk.

org on the Downloads page. The UK area file covers the whole of the UK and can be

found in Downloads>sector files>CTR-TMA. You may also want to download a more

detailed file for particular airports.

The answer is in the quote you've posted - go to the website of the division you want to control in - and you can find the link to that in the right hand column of the front page at www.vatsim.net There's a typo in the UK URL which I hadn't spotted before but will get corrected - the direct link is www.vatsim-uk.org (which actually now redirects to www.vatsim-uk.co.uk)

That would depend on what you want to do. If you want to watch the whole control area, you need a CTR file. If you plan to control, you will typically be using the files in the order you wrote, from top to bottom in your list, specifically ground and tower. More specific information will be given by the people who train you. Prior to observing, it is advisable to follow Vatsim guidance and necessary radar client manual chapters.

 

Ground Files

Tower Files

Approach Files

CTR-TMA Files

Military Files

Oceanic Files which of these files do i download then which versions?

If you want to observe in the UK, I'd suggest downloading the UK area file from CTR-TMA. Later if you want to watch specific airports in more detail, you can download the appropriate TWR or APP file.
