A fun sense of realism in flight simulation
Website Redesign under way. Please excuse some layout inconsistencies for the time being.
New Flight Operations website in development. Designed for pilots, controllers, and observers to interact via one system.
Join us every Saturday night for the next several weeks! People are guaranteed to be on-line!
Getting started with SvATC is really easy. Here are some simple steps.
- Register on our website (click the "register" link above).
- Install and connect to our TeamSpeak voice communication server.
- Install and connect to the Seattle vATC JoinFS multi-player server.
That's really all it takes! Here's a short video if you need help
What is Seattle vATC?
Founded March 1st, 2016, we are an independent flight simulation community with two primary goals.
- Provide a realistic multilayer simulation, and
- Promote aviation education.
Our members range from aviation enthusiasts to aviation professionals. Our real world pilots are happy to share their knowledge. Our ATC training curriculum is the most comprehensive program on flight simulation.
Because we focus on quality over quantity, our relatively small organization has made a noticeable impact within the simulation industry.
Because we are an independent organization, we aren't tied up by administrative policies of the larger networks which consistently hinder realism. Our focus on this specific airspace also contributes to increased quality.
How does it work?
VOICE: Our members talk to each other using TeamSpeak3, a voice communication program, similar to Discord. Connect at ts.seattlevirtualatc.org.
FLIGHT: Pilots and controllers connect to our JoinFS hub server. This allows members to fly together on-line, and for ATC to track aircraft on radar.
TRAINING: From a YouTube video series, to one-on-one lectures and an on-line classroom, we aim to raise the bar for realistic, fun, and professional training.
ADAPTABILITY: We welcome all aviators into our community, from those just starting out, to those already finished with their career. We're sure you'll be fascinated with what the Seattle airspace has to offer.
