Is the website free?
Yes, it is entirely free.
How can i become an ATC (Air Traffic Controller) and begin scheduling events?
If this is the first time you want to schedule an event, just click on "New Event" in the "ATC Events" at the date you expect to control. Fill in your e-mail address and choose a password. Make sure you remember your login information for the next schedules.
I already created an event, how can I create a new one?
If you already created an event, then your email address is known. You should just connect from the "ATC Dashboard" section.
Why are there so many airports listed when i create a new event?
When you are not connected as an ATC, if you create a new Event from the main page, every known airport will be shown.
  • If you have never created an event, select the airport in the list or create a new one. The interface will remember your favorite(s) airport(s) when you will connect from "ATC Dashboard" section.
  • If you already have created an event, connect from "ATC Dashboard" and only airport your favorite(s) airport(s) will be shown.
Is filling a flight plan mandatory?
In the real life, IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) pilots file their flight plans.
VFR (Visual Flight Rules) pilots are however not requested to file a flight plan. However, ATCs appreciate that.
What is a "Special Event"?
Sometimes several ATCs want to organize a bigger event with many airports. A "Special Event" usually occurs in a focused area and more than 3 or 4 airports are controlled at the same time.
