ATIS steht für "Automatic Terminal Information Service" und ist ein Informationsdienst für Verkehrsflughäfen. Nähere Informationen über das ATIS System findet ihr [http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automatic_Terminal_Information_Service hier]. In diesem Artikel wollen wir uns auf die ATIS im virtuellen Controllerleben der VACC Austria beschränken.
 
  
Auf VATSIM verwenden wir sowohl Text als auch Voice ATIS, d.h. die enthaltenen Informationen werden entweder per Text über das Netzwerk angefragt oder kontinuierlich von einem der Controller eines Airports auf einer eigenen ATIS-Frequenz durchgegeben. Dies funktioniert natürlich nach einer Aufnahme automatisch und sogar diese kann man sich z.B. mit dem Radarclient EuroScope ersparen. D.h. dieses liest das METAR regelmäßig aus und generiert dadurch und mittels vorgefertigter Sound-Dateien eine vollständige Voice ATIS. Wie dies im einzelnen zu konfigurieren ist, lest bitte selbst im Handbuch zum jeweiligen Client nach.

ATIS is the abbrevation for "Automatic Terminal Information Servis and is a information service for airports. Further information about the ATIS system itself can be found here. In this article here we want to concentrate on ATIS during virtual controller sessions in Austrian airspace.

On VATSIM we use voice and text ATIS. That means, that the ATIS on the VATSIM network can be received as text message or as continous voice on a special frequency, the ATIS frequency, which can be found on our airport information pages. The ATIS is provided by a controller logged on to the VATSIM network, preferrable the main controller for the specified airport (like the tower or approach controller).

Together with the controller software EuroScope we have a comfortable tool to create ATIS information for our pilots, because EuroScope does create voice and text ATIS messages from predefined sound files. For further information on how to configure EuroScope to automatically build ATIS messages please vitis the EuroScope documentation. If you installed the EuroScope VACC Austria Edition, which can be found on the homepage of VACC Austria, everything should work out of the box.

Current sound files for EuroScope to be used with Austrian airports ATIS information can be found here (included in EuroScope VACC Austria Edition).


ATIS templates

To have one common format for ATIS messages we ask you to use the templates below. If you provide a voice ATIS this is not necessary, in that case following notice as text ATIS is enough.

[Radiostation Name]
Voice and Text ATIS available on: 123.450 Mhz

Normally voice ATIS is preferred, but if you are not able to setup a voice ATIS frequency do not forget to change local details in the templates before going online.
