ATC Client

Software to provide Air Traffic Control services on VATSIM is free. You have a choice of which software you prefer to use, though we recommend taking into account the popularity of the clients in your Division and therefore the help available to you in your training.

Currently all ATC clients are only available for Windows.

Audio for VATSIM (AFV) Compatibility

In-built – Audio for VATSIM is already built into the client and you need only set up your microphone and speakers/headset and your client connects to Audio for VATSIM.

Standalone AFV Client Required – Audio for VATSIM has not yet been integrated into the client so the standalone Audio for VATSIM client is required. Connect to VATSIM first through your preferred ATC client and then connect to the standalone Audio for VATSIM client.

For more information, and to download the Standalone AFV Client, visit the Audio for VATSIM website.

EuroScope – Standalone AFV Client Required

Designed by Gergely Csernak and currently the most popular ATC client on the network, EuroScope (ES) is customisable and designed to simulate real-life radar software. It also features an innovative display, automatic controller coordination and a built-in simulation system.
