Requirements to become a VACC Austria controller


Register your VATSIM account

If you are not already a VATSIM member, go to the VATSIM Homepage and create your account. Make sure your account is assigned to VATEUR (Europe) Region and VATEUD (Europe without UK and Russia) subdivision.


Check your VATSIM region assignment

Go to the VATSIM Certificate Website, type in your VATSIM ID, press "Lookup" and check if the region shows "Austria". In case the region is not selected or not correct, send a mail to the VATEUD Membership Director and ask to correct the region assignment.


Register at VACC-Austria

If your are not already registered in the VACC-Austria, go to our Homepage and create your account. Keep in mind, that the credentials for the VACC-Austria infrastructure differs from your VATSIM account!


Gather some practice and experience

At this point we strongly recommend that you connect to the network and fly around for several hours to get a feeling on the pilot side and spend some hours at observing active controllers in Austria, as well. Feel free to chat with other pilots and controllers in our Teamspeak Voice Chat and share your experience with us in our Forums. Remember, the best controllers are also pilots, however, having (virtual) pilot experience is not a requirement but a recommendation from our side.


Apply for controller status

Log into the VACC-Austria homepage and select from the menu "member" and select "My Training" (deutschsprachige Mitglieder finden die Bewerbung unter "Mitglied" - "Meine Ausbildung"). In the information form, fill out the application. Please give us some details about yourself, your skills, previous experience with flight simulation, phraseology etc.


Procedure for accepted controllers

After your acceptence as a VACC Austria controller, anticipate the contact of your dedicated mentor, for further information.
