New ATC Region Assignments

ATC Region Assignments

Infinite Flight’s ATC (IFATC) team is a qualified group of controllers that provide air traffic services for the Expert Server, and if you regularly fly there you’ve likely checked the ATC Schedule before to plan your next flight!

Excited for the new region’s!

Now this…this is going to be cool.

I like this a lot! I always thought that it was strange that only one region was being controlled per day in a fight sim where you can fly around the whole globe.
