About us

As a proud part of the worldwide VATSIM Network, we are responsible for providing virtual ATC service in the area of southwest Germany around Frankfurt and Stuttgart. We provide ATC service for all airports in this area and offer trainings to all people interested in becoming a virtual air traffic controller.

What is VATSIM?

VATSIM (short for the Virtual Air Traffic Simulation Network) is a completely free online platform which allows virtual pilots, wherever they are in the world, to connect their flight simulators into one shared virtual world. VATSIM also simulates air traffic control in this virtual world, creating the ultimate as-real-as-it-gets experience for you, the virtual aviation enthusiast.

With over 79,000 active members in 2018, connecting your flight simulator to VATSIM allows you to join hundreds of other pilots in our virtual skies, flying all kinds of aircraft all over the world. As a VATSIM member, you can join our many communities across the world to enhance your flying skills and flight simulator experience in a shared virtual airspace. You can also become a virtual air traffic controller, adding that extra bit of realism for you and your fellow enthusiasts. The real beauty of VATSIM is that it caters people who are completely new to the hobby as well as to the seasoned flight simmer.

The VATSIM world is divided into Regions, then Divisions and finally local facilities, which take on a number of different names depending on where you are in the world. These structures help to build and maintain communities across the globe, providing resources, training and a place to share the experience of VATSIM wherever you are. VATSIM is also the main network for many established Virtual Airlines and other virtual flying groups, whose pilots populate our skies every day with hundreds of flights.

And RG Frankfurt?

RG Frankfurt (RG = Regional Group) and RG Düsseldorf together are the Langen FIR (FIR = Flight Information Region), which together with Bremen and Munich FIR make up the vACC Germany (vACC = Virtual Area Control Center).
