Welcome to Boston Virtual ARTCC!


Boston Virtual ARTCC (BVA) is a free, immersive, and realistic air traffic control community for pilots and aviation enthusiasts. We provide air traffic control within the Boston ARTCC on VATSIM, covering several popular airports in the New England and Upstate New York regions. In addition, we have an active community of pilots who work with the controllers to create one of the most realistic air traffic control environments available online.

At BVA, you can train as a controller, participate in Wings Over New England, learn from other members in a communal environment, and more! At BVA, everyone is here to learn and happy to help.
