Shared Skies - flying together on VATSIM

Recommended Posts

With the arrival of FSX and the "Shared Skies" feature, it is now possible for two pilots to fly online together as a single aircraft on VATSIM. This is done by the co-pilot using FSInn's Observer mode and a modified callsign. Full details of how to set this up can be found in the Pilot Resource Center at http://mbev.net/wikka/ConnectingAsCopilot The instructions for the co-pilot must be followed exactly to ensure he doesn't show up on the controller's scope as a duplicate aircraft.


Flying with a co-pilot adds a new dimension to the VATSIM experience and is an excellent way for newer pilots to learn from their more experienced colleagues. Try it for yourself!
