Aircraft Radio Simulator Permanently Deleted

As of October 31, 2019, I have permanently deleted the Aircraft Radio Simulator from its home at ATCinsider.com. The program developed so many glitches, it became non-functional. Given that the simulator was extremely limited in scope, I decided to delete it and start a new simulator from scratch. More on that in a moment.

Although the simulator was the primary feature at ATCinsider.com, that website remains for those pilots who wish to use a course called Clearance Magic.

Clearance Magic is a pay-to-use course designed for IFR pilots. The program lets pilots practice copying IFR clearances from ATC. At present, this is the only fully functional program at ATCinsider.com. IFR pilots can navigate to the course beginning at the introductory page at IFRclearance.com.

In the near future, I will transfer Clearance Magic to another website, making ATCinsider.com obsolete. Therefore I’m recommending, unless you are an IFR pilot or a pilot working on an instrument rating, that you ignore all references to ATCinsider.com in the contents of this website.

I am working on a new simulator but the progress on it has been extremely slow. I wish I could provide you with an update on when a test version of the new simulator will be available, but I can’t even see the light at the end of the tunnel. Rest assured, any updates on the new simulator will be immediately posted at this website.

In summary, the Aircraft Radio Simulator is no more. I am working on a new version with no estimated time in service. ATCinsider.com is relevant only to IFR pilots wishing to use Clearance Magic. I apologize to you if you were excited about practicing your VFR radio work using the simulator. I know this is disappointing news. In the meantime, my books are a good resource. I’ll continue to work hard in the background to give you quality tools for improving your radio skills.
