    Audio For VATSIM

    VATSIM is delighted to announce that Audio for VATSIM, our brand new voice technology, will launch on Monday 14th October 2019. This is the dawn of the next generation of online flight simulation. Check out our video below.

    What is Audio for VATSIM?

    Audio for VATSIM is an innovative new technology for our voice communication which features:

    • State of the art voice quality - a brand new Opus-based voice codec with optional realistic distortion, white noise, VHF and HF simulation
    • Reduced delay - up to 80% reduction in latency, making busy frequencies more realistic and manageable
    • Range simulation - transceivers set up as per real ATC positions, with signal strength dependent on distance and altitude
    • Customisable technology - this upgrade paves the way for future amazing development by the community.

    Instructions for upgrading your pilot or ATC client are now available on the Audio for VATSIM web site. Follow the instructions carefully to ensure you can enjoy the new voice system from 14th October!

      Unfortunately, it seems VATSIM has decided that FS2004 pilots will soon no longer be able to use VATSIM due to the codec. FSINN & Squawkbox will soon become obsolete. FS2004 Pilots are being forced to switch to SWIFT to connect and use an add-on Codec for voice. Just saying.

    Can we have a dedicated VR forum for FS 2020?

    We really do need our own forum to discuss VR in...no point mixing with the non-VR simmers as it is an entirely different experience. The problem is...
