its very good, worth every penny, but all your flights have to be filed, either VFR or IFR. No bush flying with this software 🙂

I use it and it is fine ..But first read the manuals and then try else you will start getting disappointed...It's not like the default ATC ...It is much more realistic...

I have just found something and its EditVoicepack. I'v installed it,read instructions but when i open it, the programe says "Reading Voicepack". I let it read it but i's taking ages. So far 30 minutes have gone and nothing has budged. Oh yer, is EditVoicepack a improvementon ATC?

Thanks

why use ATC that is computer generated when you can talk to real people on vatsim which is fantastic!! It is awesome and only takes a little while to be able to communicate on voice.

Yes it is, but only in terms of ATC Vocabulary (disregarding a rare exception) Upside is that ATC will no longer call you "Expirimental" or something if it doesn't recognise your aircraft, because EVP will add most of the aircraft types/manufacturers and airlines to FS9.

But don't expect it to change to "real" ATC and start giving you SID's/STAR's, proper TA/TL's, or to stop landing Cessna's in front of B737's etc.

Best advise is of the previous poster, come fly online

I'm sure this is sound advice, but there are two reasons why I can't do it:

    play in the same room where my wife and I sleep. I'm sure she'd just love me talking to the computer as she was trying to take a nap 😂

    I ain't good enough to play that way - not yet anyway. Someday soon, I hope...

i wouldnt use the word 'play' when you are leaving heathorw on a busy friday night and getting your clearances live from atc whilst flying the pmdg aircraft. To 'play' you could just go round anywhere smashing into buildings but thats not the point in it

Fair enough - I just used "play" for want of a better word.

Hi Antone,

From what I remember, you seem to be rather serious about flying, which would make it a shame not to fly online.

I've started flying online a few months ago, and it's one of the best things I've ever done in FS.

If you ever want to start flying at IVAO I'd be happy to answer some of the questions about the basics you might have.

I also do ATC at Gatwick Airport when time permits, you could do a little trial flight from there to at least talk to someone you "know" (you know what I mean)

Entirely up to you ofcourse, but if ever, give me a shout 🙂

[EDIT] Forgot to say, on IVAO, using only TEXT to communicate with ATC is commonly accepted - although voice is much more fun.
Night flights with sleeping relatives nearby is no problem at all 🙂

I'm serious about aviation, but I'm a lousy flyer. However, if the site you metioned has controllers for Harrisburg, PA, I'd give it a go. I think I'd be better at ATC than at flying. PM me some time and let me know the details.
