No doubt, our friend Dorianee has the best of intentions, but let me clarify a couple of things:

Neither Dorianee nor I speak for VATSIM in any official capacity. That said, of course we'd like to see more people come and fly in what is the most realistic environment active right now.


If you want to just log in and fly around willy nilly.
If you want to connect and control some random airspace as a "newbie"

it would be best if you did not connect on VATSIM.

Everyone is welcome. No skills are needed except: Knowledge of the BASICS of flight and communication. Controllers will be happy to help you and most VACC/ARTCCs have training programs for pilots.

As for controlling? If you want to be a controller on VATSIM you will have to go through training. It's nothing hard, but expect to spend about 20 hours training and studying. You cannot just connect and control. You can connect and just fly though.

More questions?

Go to the VATSIM site ( and click "New pilots start here"!

Hope to see you online.
