First of all you will need to have a look at the VATSIM website for information involving new pilots.

They have a very useful Pilot's Resource Centre (PRC) that I recommend you look at.

This is their PRC Centre:

You will find all the info you need to get up and flying with VATSIM. Be aware though that you must be up for some proper reading in order to get the best out of VATSIM and also they are very strict - so be prepared! 😉

If you look on the left side of the link above I gave you, you will see a link named 'VATSIM 104 - Add-on Software. Take a good look there too.

If you need any more help, just let us know 😉

Good luck of course 🙂

I know you want to start flying as fast as possible, but trust me - the quickest way is to read through the material at the PRC (Pilot Resource Center).

At least read the "required reading" ( at you'll be ready to start. When flying your first flight, keep the PRC open in your browser so you can take a peek while flying if necessary (if you have forgotten something or if you are wondering something).

Good luck
