Is Ivao free?

International Virtual Aviation Organisation VZW (IVAO) is a non-profit association which operates a free-of-charge online flight-simulation network.

What is PilotEdge?

PilotEdge is an online Air Traffic Control (ATC) network. Once you connect your flight simulator to PilotEdge (including X-Plane, FS2020, or P3D), you can talk to trained, paid, human air traffic controllers by using the radio in your aircraft exactly as you would in real life.

What is right downwind?

When flying a right downwind, you look to your right to see the runway and make right turns to base and final.

What software can be used to connect IVAO?

The IVAO Pilot Client, known as IvAp, is a plug-in which allows flight simulation programs to connect to the IVAO network using the following simulators: Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 / X. X-Plane 8 / 9 / 10 / 11. Prepar3D.

What is a crosswind component?

Definition. When winds are not parallel to or directly with/against the line of travel, the wind is said to have a crosswind component; that is, the force can be separated into two vector components: the headwind or tailwind component in the direction of motion, the crosswind component perpendicular to the former.

How much does VATSIM cost?

completely free
VATSIM is completely free to join and use, including all of our pilot and ATC software that allows you to connect to our global network.

Is ATC in flight Simulator real?

Although flight simulators typically have built-in, artificial air traffic control, most experienced flight simmers use third-party products to fly with live, human, air traffic controllers and communicate via two-way audio streams.

What means left downwind?

If an aircraft is left downwind of the runway, it means they’re flying parallel to the runway, in the opposite, downwind direction (the runway is to the pilot’s left, hence “left downwind”).

Do you have to enter traffic pattern on downwind?

By David Sutton. When I was a student, I learned the golden rule of standard traffic pattern entries: Always enter the downwind leg on a 45-degree angle and at pattern altitude. This is the best and safest entry, because it enables you to see other pilots in the pattern and enables those in the pattern to see you.
