It has been years in the making. Today, at long last, I am pleased to announce the release of the Aircraft Radio Simulator Version 2.0 demonstration.
Before we go any further, some words of caution.
- This is only a demonstration. It is not the full Aircraft Radio Simulator training program.
- Many, many features of the simulator are still in development. This is a limited demonstration to show what is coming in the future.
- Future iterations of the Aircraft Radio Simulator will work in other web browsers.
- This demonstration is limited in scope and free to use. The finished Aircraft Radio Simulator will be offered through an access fee.
Okay, enough cautionary messages. Here’s the good part. This demo allows you to get hands on with Version 2.0. You may make circuits around a fictitious airport called Atlanta Town and Country Airport. The tower’s callsign is Town and Country Tower. You will fly, make radio calls to tower and get a reply. There is programming to monitor your flight path. ATC will intervene if you make an error. You will also see a 3-D view through the front windscreen of the cockpit. The smoothness of the 3-D display will depend on the computing power of your computer’s chipset.
The Aircraft Radio Simulator Version 2.0 is waiting for you at ATCinsider.com. If you are not already an Insider, you will need to create a sign-in. Once you are an Insider, if you choose to receive updates from me, (which is entirely optional,) I’ll send you very short emails periodically to let you know when a new version of the simulator has been posted at ATCinsider.com. Here is the link to the ATCinsider log-in page.
Have fun, and be sure to write to me at jeff@ATCcommunication.com about the simulator, or make a comment below this article.
