News / Public Release of vNAS is now LIVE
« on: October 09, 2023, 05:45:11 PM »
Hello VATUSA,
As most of you are aware, there has been a development project in the works for some time aiming to improve the experience for VATUSA controllers and pilots. The new vNAS system, short for Virtual National Airspace System, serves as a multifaceted software suite that will seamlessly connect many different aspects of ATC together and in a more in-depth manner than what we have previously been able to achieve. Building this system was a major investment in improving our virtual infrastructure, and today we are able to celebrate its public release for all VATUSA controllers to enjoy!

Attached below are some helpful resources for you to watch, read, explore, and learn about our new system. CRC, or Consolidated Radar Client, is the primary application of vNAS and serves as the new controlling client for our virtual controllers. No longer will controllers need to have 2 or 3 different controlling clients depending on the position they wish to work, as with CRC everything is in one place. This software is customizable and offers plenty of new features that will improve coordination and communication between controllers in our division. Learn more about it below:

Introduction to CRC Video - Made by the Oakland ARTCC for all to enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KHjynNJJHs
vNAS Official Website: https://www.vnas.vatsim.net/

📕  Documentation 📕
CRC: https://crc.virtualnas.net/docs/
vStrips: https://strips.virtualnas.net/docs/
vTDLS: https://tdls.virtualnas.net/docs/

VATSIM has also approved a secondary connection to be made through a pilot client for the use of tower view: https://forum.vatsim.net/t/announcement-update-to-tower-view-connection/3584

We would like to take a moment and thank the primary developers who are responsible for making this happen. Without the dedication of Ross Carlson, Nathan Rankin, and anyone else who pitched in, this new system would not be possible.

Now is the time to jump on the network, control with the rest of your ARTCC, and get excited about controlling and serving pilots in a way we have never seen before. While other legacy clients are still permitted to connect to the network, this will not be the case for long. We highly encourage our membership to become familiar with the new CRC program and move away from the older clients as they will be officially retired in an undetermined time that's not too far away. The official last day for these legacy clients will be announced with plenty of notice in the future.

If you have questions about the software or run into issues, feel free to ask others in your ARTCC or talk to your ARTCC staff. We are all learning together, and there may be some bumps along the way. Nonetheless, we want to once again thank Ross, Nathan, and the entire vNAS team for their contributions to the network, and we look forward to seeing everyone controlling the friendly skies using CRC and the rest of the vNAS suite.

Well...what are you waiting for?! vNAS is officially released, let's LIGHT UP AMERICA!

It is my pleasure to announce the next ZHU ATM, Ethan Hawes! Ethan has been a dedicated member of the network for over 15 years and has never shied away from pitching in and helping out where needed. You may know Ethan from his time as ZFW TA, ZFW EC, a member of VATGOV, one of his many other staff roles, or just a friendly controller who loves to control in various ARTCCs such as ZID, ZHU, and many others! His wealth of knowledge, willingness to teach and empower the next generation of VATSIM members, and constant drive to improve set him up to be successful in his new role. He has already spent countless hours helping ZHU prepare for CRC, and continues to demonstrate what it means to be a leader in the community by leading by example. We are so excited for Ethan to take the reigns in ZHU, and look forward to watching the Houston ARTCC continue to grow under Ethan's leadership. Congrats Ethan!

News / ZLC Staff Changes
« on: July 29, 2023, 10:00:49 AM »
I'd like to take a moment to address some staff changes that have occurred in the Salt Lake City ARTCC. In recent weeks, both Ben Lindsey and Nathan Bauer have resigned from their positions as ZLC DATM and ATM. We are grateful for their 2 years of service in their roles and wish them all the best in the future as they turn their attention towards their real-world commitments.

Due to the current needs of the ZLC ARTCC and its members, we have decided to try a new approach to filling the ZLC staff positions at this time. Over the past few weeks, we have worked with the senior staff at ZLC and ZDV to come up with a plan to help grow the ZLC ARTCC and fill staff positions by joining the ZLC and ZDV staff together. With the goal of growing the ZLC ARTCC, the ZDV staff will oversee ZLC operations and training until new ZLC staff members can be developed and placed into positions. There is no definite timeline on how long the staff teams will be merged other than "as long as it takes." The ZLC and ZDV ARTCCs will remain separate entities with different websites and identities, but will share a collective staff team and training department. This is different from what we have done in the past like with PCF, and we are excited about the opportunities this partnership will provide both ARTCC's members. I look forward to watching ZDV and ZLC work together to help increase ZLC's presence and activity on the network, provide more training opportunities to the controllers, and help grow and promote members on the roster so they can achieve the next controlling rating and/or staff position to keep ZLC moving forward. If anyone has any questions about this change or would be interested in helping grow ZLC, please reach out to me via [email protected].
