  1. 1. How do you rate this?

    • Good idea, and I find it useful
    • I want to use it, but I need some clarification or support to figure out how to use it
    • I have no need for this. VATSpy or other products are working fine for me
    • I have absolutely no idea what this is, or if it would be useful to me

VATSIM is a great tool, and I greatly enjoy every minute of coverage, that our fellow online controllers provide.

As part of my plight planning, I have struggled in getting the information needed, to predict controllers availability. Trying to support an easier way of doing so, I have created a tool, that I use every time I am planning for a flight that I expect to fly with VATSIM. 

Some of you guys may find this helpful, so I have shared it on github and Flightsim.to. Please find links below.

So far, the solution has solely been developed from my own experience, needs and preferences. Please share any comments in this forum, so that I may enhance and improve the user experience to support a wider range of usability.

Hi Morten,
Out of curiosity, how exactly does this work? Does your tool "predict" when ATC will be online? Does it use any sort of information from within the remarks?

Not sure what you mean "Does it use any sort of information from within the remarks".

The "prediction" is made by looking at https://statsim.net/atc/?tables=true, to see who has made a registration for intended online sessions as a controller. Most of them will show up as they intended, but there are no guaranties. We're all just human, you know. 🙂
