    Re: on line flying

    Hello,

    For routes you can try this site http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/

    In order to find if an ATC is active on VATSIM Network you can try http://www.vatsim.net/data/who_vatsim.html. Alternatively you can also install a software called serverinfo to give the same information more graphically.

    Another equally large online network you can try is IVAO. All information to get started can be found here.

    Cheers have fun.

    Re: on line flying

    Hi

    Online flying can be a bit daunting to begin with but just put some remarks in your flight plan to say you are a novice and the controller will help you along.

    It is worth working through the pilot training section at VATSIM (see the link under pilot menu)
    http://www.vatsim.net/
    Here all the basics are taught of what to expect and when and the interaction with ATC.

    As far as virtual airlines are concerned, you don't have to belong to one to fly on VATSIM. However, they do provide some structure to your flying and have a social side as well to give advice and help as required. A very good one is Fly UK. Have a look at...

    The best of luck and enjoy your self.

    For flight planning i use Vroute.info it gives you the waypoints & wx at dep & arr ports. U can also print the plan out & send the f/plan in to the atc.

    Hi Andy.

    I have tried VAT Sim's site, and cannot find any way of contacting them??
    When I have completed my cockpit, I hope to be able to fly with them, but there seems to be a lack of information regarding communication (talk) procedures when contacting ATC? I cant just say anything I like, and instructions would be helpful. I would also like to know where and when I can fly in the UK (I am in Plymouth). There are many other questions that I would like to ask such as how and where do I log on to the system and presumably speak to ATC?
    I feel that there is a lack of illustration for those that want to know the exact procedures as to how to go from sitting at home in the sim cockpit, to connecting with ATC at an agreed airport?
    Sorry to lay this off on you, but if VATSIM were a little more open about people contacting them, I would burden them with my many questions!
    If you have a contact for them, I would appreciate you letting me know.
    My final comment - is this a 'club' for those that already have all the answers?

    Thanks for your time.

    TONY. Plymouth UK.

    Hi Tony,

    All you need to do to sign up is to click the Vatsim members header at the top of the page. from here you can access the link to join Vatsim. You may also find it useful after you join to use the map at the top to join a national level division of vatsim and receive training from them

    Hope this helps
    Steve

    Re: on line flying

    Tony, you just need to get ur first flight out of the way and you'll be cruising! Are you flying FS at the moment (offline)? If so, no need to wait til ur pit is complete, I would suggest you start flying online right now. Do you have any real world experience, eg. Listening to airband radio?

    Re: on line flying

    Hello Tony
    If you pop along to www.vatsim.net/prc/
    This provides a good guide to the various aspects of getting started. From the basics of choosing a callsign to the detail of an IFR flight.
    Alternatively you can go to the www.vatsim-uk.co.uk/website/
    This has a training scheme for pilots if you prefer to be mentored.

    FlyUK also provides support to get people on-line and you could have a look at www.flyuk.aero/

    Have a read through and connect in to a Vatsim session and listen in you will soon become familiar with the on-line flying routine.

    Enjoy
    Andy
