Do You Control Or Fly On Vatsim? Or Both?

Sun Mar 20, 2005 10:46 pm

Hiya,

I want to know who flys/controls on VATSIM from a.net  Smile

I fly and control. I'm a STU3 and you can find me on EGNH_APP Big grin

I think almost all controllers fly as well as control... Though I maybe wrong

Rgds,
Scott

I use IVAO. Does both controling as well as flying.As a controller the rating is still a student but fly as Captain.

Yep as both Scott and Zak know im a controller there, however now moving from Essex (Stansted / Luton / Southend) to Capital (Heathrow / City) and I am an S3. I will be doing my controller exam hopefully within the next few months.

I am also a captain at BAV and fly all of my flights online with 250hours.

Thanks Dave Big grin

I'd love to control but the whole process of joining takes too long. I am registered and have downloaded ARSC but haven't got a clue what to do now.

I'm getting DC-10 on his way with controlling now Big grin

I would say VATSIM are the more realistic than IVAO... And FSARTCC (i think thats how you spell it), just dont even go there lol. They're starting to pay for the hobby!

Thanks a lot Scott. Still waiting for VATSIM to get back to me about being able to join the UK region. I entered my details but it says I may already have joined - but I'm not on the UK list.

I can, but I dont. I like the volume of traffic online flying gives, plus I can pause it if I need to.

The question is: is the average VATSIM controller beter than FS ATC?
A340-300 - slow, but awesome!
