VATSIM - CYYZ Ops Event - FSX

Recommended Posts

There was a CYYZ (Toronto Pearson Intl) event on VATSIM this saturday (Sept 24). YYZ was fully staffed from Delivery all the way to Toronto Centre. JFK And New York centre were online as well so i decided to do a short flight from JFK to Toronto.

 

FLIGHT LOG: http://vataware.com/flight.cfm?id=8410790

 

It was very busy over Toronto, you'll notice all the traffic displayed by TCAS on the MFD :)

The radio distortion sounds are extremely nicely done.

Never played FSX really but what is this? Ingame VOIP or some sort of program.

Its run through a couple programs, some for pilots and some for ATC.

 

This whole community is called Vatsim, look it up, its really cool if your into realistic flying.

Hey Kassa. The Voice servers are owned by VATSIM, but I believe the radio distortion is done by the program used to connect to their servers, called "Squawkbox". They also have "FSinn" but it's too complex and annoying to use, I prefer simplicity. Oh yea I forgot to post my flight log.

 

 

Here we go:

What dash 8 do you use Pclipse? Thats one of my favorite planes, but I'm getting tired of the freeware one I have.

I don't use the Dash 8 anymore. The one I did use was a 2D cockpit. I think it was made by "Dreamwings"

 

However there is a nice one made by Majestic.

It is SquawkBox.

Just like ACRE...range, height and all effect it. Its pretty cool until you get someone eating their Mic, cause it will blow your eardrums out.

 

Good times P. I flew CYYZ to KTPA that day, EDT was 1425z. You should have signed up for the event, they are giving shit away.

Hey Unreal,

 

Yea I used to be part of a virtual airline based out of Toronto here called "Porter Airlines" they operate the Q400s

 

Majestic has been developing the Q400 and I just noticed they've updated their development and check out these shots man! Looks amazing:

wish I could do this, haha I would be the confused guy up there not knowing what to do

 

Its actually not that complicated, its merely a formula that you plug your information into.

 

If you really want, start at liveatc.net and pick an airport you like. then talk to us if you have any questions.

 

Its almost as addicting as playing with UO, and I love recommending it to people.

No worries Restrepo, I can guarantee you that ATC Communications is the easiest part of flying :P The ATC is there to guide you like a blind man through an obstacle course, and their terminology is always the same so you can never get lost haha. The more difficult part of flying is flying with instruments and properly flying SIDS and STARS and knowing how to read the corresponding charts that come with them.

 

But Flight sim is great fun :P A lot easier than real world flying, I'll tell you that haha!

Haha that was my worry all along, I've never really worried about the communication.

 

But when I flew just for shits and giggles, it was always direct until I got vectors from the FSX ATC for an ILS landing. Now I guess I have to go out and learn more about SIDS and STARS because I'm really interested in this haha :)
