Have you ever dreamed of being an Air Traffic Controller?



Well with VATSIM it is not only possible but can be quite easily achieved.

The VATSIM network is a realistic simulation of procedures followed by pilots and air traffic controllers everyday around the world. Each day there are hundreds, sometimes thousands, of aircraft flying on the VATSIM network with each pilot following real world procedures for their flight.

Pilots need Air Traffic Controllers to help them to conduct their flights as they takeoff off from A, fly hundreds of miles to B and land safely. All of this must be done while other aircraft are doing the same. The job of the Air Traffic Controller is to keep them moving but, more importantly, to keep them separated.

Can you imagine how it will be controlling at London, Frankfurt, Athens or Vienna?

There could be many aircraft in your airspace each needing precise instructions and clearance from you. Of course you will need a little training but that’s not a problem since VATSIM will provide the training and is there help you as you progress as a controller, see Controller Training.


Learning to become a pilot on the VATSIM network can be both fun and challenging. The most important thing to remember is that this is a hobby and your primary goal should be to have fun on the network. Explore more than 20.000 airports all around the globe together with more then 250,000 members in nearly every country. Share the adventure of online flying together with lots of other Flightsimulation enthusiasts.

An Air Traffic Controller begins by working with aircraft on the ground, then as a Tower controller, clearing aircraft to takeoff and land. Before long you will move up to the busy approach and departure duties culminating your ATC career as an Enroute Controller; handling aircraft crisscrossing the country as they make their way between departure and destination airports.
