  9. VATPAX Outage

    Hi all, Over the past ~72 hours, the VATSIM Data Collection System (VDCS) that VATPAC runs had intermittent outages lasting between 1 and 3 hours. We believe we've rectified the problems, but the data lost during this period is un-recoverable, so apologies for that. We aren't sure exactly what caused the problem, but as I mentioned, we believe we have fixed the issue and we will monitor the VDCS over the next few days. Thanks.

  11. TWR Controller - Aidan McCoy

    Congratulations to Aidan who passed his Tower rating on Saturday.
  12. Intermittent Website Outages (next 12 hours)

    Good news - the server migration appears to have fixed all of the underlying errors. Bad news - it will take a few days to ensure everything is back up and running properly.
  13. Intermittent Website Outages (next 12 hours)

    Hi all, Over the past few hours you may have experienced some outages on our main web-server. We are transferring to a different server within the hosting company to fix those pesky 505 errors that have been cropping up. Everything should be back up and running within 12 hours. Note: This is not affecting the VATSIM AUSTRALIA server. I'll update you when everything is all stable.
  14. Brett Vaughan - TMA Controller

    Please join me in congratulating Brett Vaughan who will shortly, pending an upgrade, join the ranks of a TMA controller. We look forward to flying under your radar, Brett!
  15. ATC Assist Enabled

    Hi Everyone, We have enabled ATC assist once again, with a twist...! 8) Thanks to the hard work of Harrison Scott (with help from Eoin and other members of the VATPAC staff team), we've overhauled ATC Assist. With a new TAAATS theme, a whole new functionality and, most importantly, no errors! Check out the new features @! If you have any feedback, please don't hesitate to email [email protected] Thanks and thanks again to Harrison !
