 <br />Who are we?<br />
We are from<br />VirtualAirTrafficSIMulation Network<br />
What we do =<br />bridging Flight Simulator and ATC<br />
 <br />First you must have <br />a “Flight Sim” on your PC<br />
Not this one<br />Yes, this one for your personal computer in home<br />
Wow, great! <br />Yes I know. <br />It must be new software letting us to fly my plane at home<br />
 <br />The answer is <br />No.<br />

Flight Simulator 5.0 became the first “flyable” Flight Sim which was published in 1993<br /> <br />
The first Flight Simulator capable for VATSIM was Flight Simulator 2000<br /> <br />
And the latest one<br />Flight Simulator X - FSX<br /> <br />
 <br />So why didn’t I hear any people flying their plane at home since 28 years ago? <br />
 <br />Because we always want something real !<br />
 <br />At that time we have no such flight simulations like today:<br />
No proper 747-400<br /> <br />
 <br />
No wonderful flight deck<br /> <br />
 <br />
Not all system simulated<br /> <br />
Not even usable flight computer<br /> <br />
Also no beautiful sceneries<br /> <br />VATSIM Hong Kong<br />http://hk.vatsea.net/(+852) 35947770<br />
No one like us creating local landmark by our hands before<br /> <br />VATSIM Hong Kong<br />http://hk.vatsea.net/(+852) 3...
No helicopters <br />
No Kai Tak<br />VATSIM Hong Kong<br />
No chance having cup of drink at A-Club<br />
And no familiar planes<br />
And no planes that you want to fly <br />VATSIM Hong Kong<br />
 <br />Ok, after we got all this. Something areSTILL MISSING!<br />
Ok, after we got all these. Something are STILL MISSING!<br />No ATC                  No others flying with us <br /> <br />
No worries, we have VATSIM<br />
VATSIMis a global user community established in 2001<br /> <br />VATSIM Hong Kong<br />
So where is VATSIM Hong Kong?<br />We do have our own site for Hong Kong<br /> <br />VATSIM Hong Kong<br />
 <br />VASTIM Hong Kong was established in 2003 and was managed by local people<br />
We are responsible for planes flying within Hong Kong FIR according to real world regulations:1.  ICAO Annex 4444<br />2. ...
Including Harbor Zone<br /> <br />
So how can we provide ATC services?<br />
This is our Virtual Radar Client, our radar screen <br /> <br />
Not just Flight Sim, ATC also as real as it gets !<br /> <br />
Approach Control <br /> <br />
And this is aerodrome control screen <br /> <br />
Our radar working like this :<br /> <br />
We can also get REAL WEATHER from VATSIM !<br />
Where are those information from ?<br />Processing <br />Observation<br />METAR<br />TAF<br /> and other weather data<br /...
This is our pilot clientSquawkbox<br />
Weather details will be directly imported onto squawk box including….. Typhoon : <br />
Rain, cloud and strong wind …. Really bad weather… but it could not stop cargo planes flying<br />
Then how can I know where ATCs and pilots are?<br />
Traditionally we will use vatsim.net <br />
But of course you can check it on your computer - Serverinfo<br />
With more detail info about ATC control area<br />
Your flight will share onto internet like flightaware.com<br />
And your flight log! <br />
So besides “As real as it gets”, what can VATSIM do?<br />
World Flight starts in 2001, Flying Around the world NONSTOP every year on VATSIM<br />Raising Money for different Charity...
With 9 different teams around the world<br />If we just count Australia…<br />AUS$ 140,000 were raised for Flying Doctors<...
And how about flying to Hong Kong ?<br />They visit us every year<br />
And we’re planning to have World Flight HK charity team in 2010<br />
So how can I join VATSIM?<br />
You can get onto VATSIM - “vatsim.net”<br /> <br />Then…<br />
Click Join VATSIM<br />
Then enter few lines of information  <br />
You’ve done it!<br />
Or you want to be our <br />Air Traffic Controllers ?<br />
Get your VATSIM-HK account first <br />
After several training courses, get your MC exam passed<br />
Then you will be one of us !<br />
Still have any questions?<br />
