This website is for a group of online hobbyists who partake in simulated flying and air traffic control on the VATSIM network. The procedures we use mirror, to the greatest extent possible, those utilized by real world air traffic control. At no time, however, should a procedure, chart, or other information contained on this website be used for real world navigation.
