Recommended Posts



VATSIM’s Boston ARTCC and Boston Virtual ATC are coming together to form one organization of pilots and air traffic controllers called Boston Virtual ARTCC. Together, the two organizations will be able to provide the best integrated pilot and air traffic control community online. By combining the airline traffic common on VATSIM with the general aviation-focused traffic on Boston Virtual ATC, the new community offers the most realistic mix of traffic in a routinely busy environment. The increase in general aviation and internal ZBW traffic, including from Cape Air Virtual, gives controllers new opportunities to practice their craft. Controllers are training and working together to manage what will become one of the busiest airspaces on VATSIM. Meanwhile, the combined ATC training staff will be larger, allowing controllers to benefit from more training opportunities and staff who have a multitude of experiences on various networks.


Please join us in celebrating this extraordinary merger as we host our first major event as one community. ZBW will be lit up and staffed more than it ever has been before. All types of traffic are welcome across the area and the entire ARTCC, be it your local flying club doing some VFR, your VA operating scheduled flights, or just a fun little jaunt in your Cessna from point A to point B, we'll be turning up the heat for our controllers and shooting for a busy Sunday night.


We hope to see you there!
