FSCopilot/FSInn VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link. Swift Swift is a recent VATSIM Pilot Client alternative now released to the public as a beta release candidate. This pilot client is a one fits all alternative and will work with FSX, P3D V3/V4 and XPlane in either 32 bit Windows or 64 bit Windows, Mac and Linux. This client, once installed and configured (not for the faint of heart - some guidance can be found in this video tutorial for those with X-Plane on Windows x64), also provides a capability for pilots to designate a private voice channel to allow communication with other pilots in the same voice channel. However, to do this requires a frequency over ride to be set allowing the client to ignore the set frequency instead providing text entry into a text box. Into this box the name of the voice room needs to be entered to enable voice communication. A voice room is typically in the form of "some.server.org/<Airport ICAO>". The server component is ALWAYS "rw1.vatpac.org". So this week's departure would use "rw1.vatpac.org/<Airport ICAO>". For airports without an airport ICAO it is typical to use VATPAC VFR Virtual voice room acccessed using 131.25 in FSINN. The equivalent for SWIFT is "rw1.vatpac.org/virtualvfr".

    Event Details This flight provides an opportunity to explore the NASA Space Centre in Florida. Pilots using X-Plane have some additional scenery to compliment the existing default for the area. This scenery is set post Shuttle and depicts the current practice of launching unmanned vehicles. Those flying legacy FSX have default scenery depicting the launch and retrieval of Shuttle missions. Atypically, pilots are encouraged to fly a small jet aircraft. This is to emulate the use of the Northrop T38 Talon used by NASA astronauts as their personal qualifying and taxi service. So pilots with the aircraft in their personal hangar are encouraged to use it for the flight. Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.

Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance : 76 nm Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins Aircraft : A light recreational sport such as J-3 Piper Cub, A-22 Foxbat or similar incapable of exceeding 100 knots. Alternatively a helicopter such as the Robison R22 can be used to add flexibility Communications : Unicom "rw1.vatpac.org/UNICOM_MPZL" for the Panama Region. VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link. For pilots connecting to VATSIM using VPilot, there is a work around that enables these pilots to also take advantage of online voice CTAF. Refer to this informative VATPAC Forum post to learn how to implement the work around.
