Preparation

The Training Department welcomes you to the virtual ATC world of VATSIM. Your training contains several theoretical and practical lessons.

Software

Before we start with your training you have to download the necessary software:

  • To communicate with your mentor we use Teamspeak (make sure to get Version 3).
  • Thereafter we need an ATC client. There are a couple of clients available on VATSIM, but the VACC-Austria use only Euroscope.

You can find it at the euroscope homepage or you use the full configured VACC-Austria edition from our homepage.

Rules & Regulations

For sure, the priority of our hobby is having fun. But don´t forget we want to provide professional service to our pilots and this contains a handful of rules which we don´t have to ignore.

The holy bible is the Code of Conduct. This regulation is valid for everyone on VATSIM.

Additionally every VACC has Rules&Regulations regarding internal topics. Have a look into our Rules and Regulations.

Gentlemens' Agreement

Not everything is written down in a document. The VACC-Austria stands for an excellent relationship among ourselves, courtesy and their reliabilty. If you want to receive these qualities, give it to each other.

Booking your station

If you want to control on a specific date and time, you have to book your station on our homepage. Choose your station and the time you want to make ATC. If you´ve booked your station, everyone (especially the pilots) will see when they can expect ATC service and plan their flight to or from your station. If you won´t be able to control at your booked time, please delete your booking. It is not nice if pilots fly to the airport according to your booking and no ATC is online. Another point is: Please be online for the whole booked time.

Teamspeak during your ATC session

Being online on teamspeak while you make ATC is highly recommended!

Your first basic lesson

Berfore your first basic lesson it is required to install the software written above. Be on time to your lesson to avoid delay.
