You may have heard of Seattle Virtual ATC at the 5th annual Flight Sim Con on June 10th and 11th. You may have joined SvATC from an internet search or reference from a friend. You may have also joined quite a while ago but never really got involved. Whatever your individual case may be, welcome!
This event provides an opportunity for new members to meet and interact with other members of Seattle Virtual ATC, including our volunteer staff. Seattle Virtual ATC is a community of aviation enthusiasts focused on realistic flight simulation and promoting aviation education. During the event, we'll help you install the software to connect to our multiplayer server, and get you flying in our airspace. We'll try to answer any questions you may have, be it a simple technical issue with the software or history of our community, or a more complex explanation such as radio communication procedures or aerodynamic principles.
ATC service is not scheduled for this event, however controllers may sign on at any time during the event if requested, or at their own leisure.
Introduction - Welcome to SvATC! Meet the staff and regular members.
About SvATC - What we do, why we do it, and how we do it.
Software - Install JoinFS and connect to our multiplayer server.
Simulator Setup - Set up your simulator to show up properly on ATC screens and learn how to avoid "bad spawns".
Question/Answer - Ask any additional questions you may have about the community, or aviation in general.

We're all here to learn and have fun. Don't be afraid to request clarification or additional help from ATC.
