Are you new to VATSIM? Well look no further! Every other Thursday we do a discovery group flight where we help new VATSIM pilots with their pattern work. We will cover radio communications, flight planning, and getting set up on the network. Don’t worry about not knowing what to do or say, we will help you through it.
