US East | Region Tracking Topic

US East Region

This IFATC region represents the east coast of the United States along with the Caribbean. It features some of the most complex and congested airspaces in the world at places like New York and Atlanta!

Check the topic comments below to see what frequencies are being staffed by ATC in this region, important airport information, and more!


Do you want IFATC to staff your event? Publish your event in the #live:events category, ensure you use the correct region tag for your event’s location, and a member assigned to the ATC region will express their team’s intent to provide services for your event.



What are ATC region assignments?

The Infinite Flight ATC (IFATC) team operates globally on the Expert Server using a region assignment program. This program allows all IFATC members to select a region, regardless of physical location, where they may control any airport/frequency for which their rank qualifies. Members will remain in their assigned region for 30 days before being eligible to transfer. Extended assignments allow for more ATC proficiency and familiarity in the assigned region!

How can I join IFATC?

Head to our ATC Recruiting Topic, read all instructions, ensure you meet the requirements, then submit an application to begin!

How does a "Region Tracking Topic" work?

Each assignable region of IFATC has it’s own tracking topic for improved ATC/pilot engagement which offers controllers an additional location to indicate which airports they’re opening in real-time. Controllers may advise when opening and closing by commenting on this topic. Pilots should avoid commenting with excessive ATC requests.

How can I see the current IFATC region staffing?

The number of controllers assigned to each region can be found by visiting Looking for more ATC in a particular region? Join the effort and become part of the staffing you want to see!

Do I need Staff/Moderator permission to receive IFATC staffing at my event?

No, members of the assigned region are encouraged to comment directly on the published #live:events to express their team’s intent to provide ATC services! Event creators should avoid contacting individual controllers privately for service, instead publishing the event publicly.

How can I improve the likelihood of ATC staffing my event?

When creating an event with ATC in mind ensure the following:

  • The featured airports have ATC frequencies
  • The featured airports has ample parking and ramp space
  • The featured theme would be complimented by ATC (airshows and landing competitions are often best without ATC on the Casual Server)
  • The event offers a variety of airports in reasonable proximity to allow for a smooth flow of Air Traffic
  • Event instructions are clear, concise, and not overly restrictive
How can I appeal my Level 2 or 3 Violation?

If reported by ATC on the Expert Server for an infraction you will be issued a Level 2 or Level 3 Violation. This may be appealed here on the Community Forum by sending a direct message to @appeals where you should provide your callsign, display name, location, details surrounding the report, and a replay file which can easily be uploaded here!


You all know that you’ll see me at EWR 24/7. 😉

Jk. That’s not allowed anymore. :(

Super excited for the new region policy to take effect, Tyler! It’s been amazing to see IFATC’s growth. I am definitely looking forward to the future!


Good morning :)

New chapter has begun :), Thank you US East Controllers.


Hey everyone! The US East team will be staffing as many Florida airports as possible this afternoon to go along with the theme of Spirit Virtual’s event. Come on by as some of us are already opening!


I’m excited to finally see this new system be used for regular events! Can’t wait to get controlling at FLL!

Hey community. Just wanted to let people know I’m currently open at KROC. Thought I’d make this announcement because it’s not typically opened. Should be on for a while!

Well, Atlanta currently isn’t living up to its name… currently only 4 arrivals and 0 departures :(

Feel free to stop by! I’ll be open (GND, TWR, ATIS) for another 47 minutes.

Hi, is it possible I could get someone to staff my event. I’m looking for a ground and tower controller but a departure controller would be cool also! 22MAY21 / 1800Z - The Great KPIT Fly-Out

It may be possible. I will inform the controllers in our region to see if can be staffed. I myself, would love to open since it’s one of my home airports!
