  4. NOTAM: AIRAC1812

    Hi All, A problem has been identified in the AIRAC 1812 VATPAC Euroscope Installer Package. The package released on 9th November contained an incorrect sector file configuration in the package which may have caused errors when opening and switching between multiple ES views using the fast ASR keys. This problem has now been rectified and controllers experiencing this issue may download the new version from https://vatpac.org/controllers/clients/. Apologies for any inconvenience.
