When it comes to regions, we are understaffed for sure. I wish to see more frequencies open such as appr/dep/center; this happens sometimes, but not often. I understand most can’t do so due to the different time zones. For global, I think we have plenty of IFATC members to cover an area, but again, we probably won’t have many controlling due to time zone differences.

It is something that is self taught (through videos and controlling on playground) there is no hands on instruction like VATSIM

Scout is a training program basically. But it’s on your own to find out the basics

I would choose both. Its a requirement to look at the video tutorials before proceeding with your IFATC test

No. You PM a trainer and they take you for sessions on TS. You start off an they pick up on any mistakes and how to fix it. Without my trainers I wouldn’t of got into IFATC.

Ok but even so it’s not starting from the basics it’s mostly self taught. ATC is not easy to learn on here for a number of reasons. Including the most obvious one it’s unrealistic and in a close 2nd it’s commands not chat based atc
