I have heard about ATIS a lot recently, and I would like to know what that is.
I would check out this great tutorial by Chris, it lets you know everything you need to know about ATIS as a pilot.
As a pilot, you should understand what the various ATIS remarks/commands mean and how you should respond as a pilot.
Actions as a Pilot
No Intersection Departures
The ATC would like pilots to use the full length of the runway
Proceed to hold short at the end of the runway
Intersection Departures OK
ATC will allow pilots to take off from intersections
If your plane does not require the full length, you may hold short at an intersection and ask for takeoff
This tutorial by Tyler is for controlling on the ES, which you need to apply for and get tested for. This shows how to do it.
FEATURE AVAILABLE FOR EXPERT SERVER ONLY
The ATIS, or Automatic Terminal Information Service, is a great tool for controllers to transmit important airport information while avoiding constant broadcasts on control frequencies. The ATIS can provide information about pattern work, departure procedures, hazardous weather, expected delays, and more!

It stands for Automatic Terminal Information Service, and it is basically a frequency that pilots use for information about the airport prior to contacting ATC. In the expert server, it is always used on active airports, and please listen to the information before leaving for your flight.
