Until you've flown in the virtual world of VATSIM, you have not truly been immersed in flight simulation. VATSIM allows you to connect with other virtual pilots and virtual controllers in a world that is scarily close to the real thing.
Installing software sounds easy, but that isn't always the case. Through this episode we'll show you how to install the different pilot clients, and how to setup your VATSIM connection within them.
Now, along with the VATSIM course, Jordan and I talk about some of the basics of communication. In this episode, we talk CRAFT clearances, taxi, and takeoff instructions.
We have a jam-packed episode of VATSIM training for you. You'll learn about how airspace works in VATSIM, how it relates to real world, other VATSIM specific things and a lot in between.
Continuing our work and polishing up on all things VATSIM before we get connected. This episode elaborates on a lot of the key components of that VATSIM network.
Picking up where we left off, starting with takeoff clearances and going through departure and enroute bits of knowledge, this episode will continue to 'connect the dots' in the evolution of radio calls during a flight.
Now we finish off our sequential series with the decent, approach, landing and taxi. This is where things to get a bit more complicated and things start to speed up again, to an eventual busy landing.
Finally we get in the air and see what it's all about. This flight is a perfect example of the type of fun you can have on VATSIM, and what it's like to key the mic, make mistakes, and move on with confidence.
Creating a flightplan is one thing. Actually filing a flightplan is a completely different thing altogether. Here we show you how to file a flightplan with the different services out there for VATSIM, and also some other details about this process.
Things are winding down for the VATSIM training, but we wanted to make sure first that we polished up some things and answered some of your pressing questions.
If you've ever looked at how airspace is structured and tried to learn all the different components, you are probably lost in a maze of confusing symbols, rules, and maps. Although this episode won't dispel all of these concerns for you, it sure will give you a great head-start on approaching airspace with the right frame of mind.
We've got a new and exciting way for us all to communicate. Here we show you how to get setup with Teamspeak 3 and get talking to us for future training and fly-in events.
Jumping into our second cross country in the VATSIM training, I take you on a flight for KIGQ to KOSH through some great ATC. It turns out that I also got chastised on the radio for no reason, so that made things pretty interesting!
Our AoA VATSIM fly-ins are starting! Read more about the details of our first one inside.
An update on the future of AviatorPro.
Join us on the last cross country flight in the VATSIM training as we fly in IFR, with ATC, and with procedures. Adding the actual IMC conditions makes this a lot more challenging!
Congratulations! We've reached the end of our VATSIM ground school, you've seen some example flights, and maybe even joined us for one of our fly-ins. We've done all we can to further your enjoyment of VATSIM, but there are still some other ways to get involved in the VATSIM community. Today we'll cover some of them.
