Important information about the flightgear-atc network and website
This is a major upgrade for users:
API minor changes:
This update improves password security.
From January 26th a new version of password encryption is available. You are thus required to change your password from your "ATC Dashboard".
There is no password constraint however you are invited to use letters (in upper and lower case), digits and special characters (\!%$£€#).
This update adds a password reset ability for those who forgot their credentials.
In the "ATC Dashboard" page you'll find a button "I lost my password" to reset your password.
There has been some recents attacks on the flightgear-atc website (and the multiplayer servers of FGFS) that caused harm to some users of the flightgear-atc website.
Indeed some people created accounts on the website and tried to give wrong information on the other users.
As a result, we decided to create a list of "trusted ATCs" on which we know we can rely on. Indeed, when a "trusted ATC" creates a session his username will be written in a green label. Example :
Hosted by user
Due to an internal migration on alwaysdata host services, a maintenance operation is planned on Thursday may 25th from 19:00 to 21:00 UTC. The main change will occur on webpages extensions. Indeed, the regular ".php5" pages will be renamed in ".php" according to the new PHP5 version hosted by Alwaysdata.
This operation won't affect ATCs and pilots regular operations (planning an ATC session, filling a flight plan, etc...).
This operation will affect API users.
We kindly ask our API users to call the new version (dev2017_04_28) :
