Traffic Controllers, on the evening of Friday 24th February starting at 1900 GMT and
finishing no later than 2100 GMT. This is open to every pilot, of every division and
The reason why we are holding this evening is to help pilots understand what is going on behind
the scenes at VATSIMâ€™s busiest airport. We hope to provide considerable insight into our
operation and explain the reason behind some of the more obscure requests that we regularly
ask of pilots.
We are not intending to teach anybody how to control, instead inform, educate and hopefully
entertain those who wish to learn a little more about the airport that VATSIMâ€™s pilots fly from
This evening will involve a presentation, hosted and delivered on our Team Speak 3 server.
Hosted by Samuel James, Heathrow RTS Manager and Tom Bewick, Heathrow RTS Instructor,

the answer to.
There is no need to RSVP your attendance, please just connect to the VATUK Team Speak 3
server around 1845 GMT and find your own way to the room, â€œMeet the controllers: Heathrowâ€.
VATUK utilises sophisticated teamspeak access software which connects to your VATSIM CID
