How to use ATC Mode


ATC Mode allows you to have controllers as a part of your ATLAS experience.

What is ATC Mode?

ATC Mode in ATLAS v1.4 is a powerful feature exclusively available to virtual airlines with an ultra subscription and beta program access. It enables designated members to assume the roles of pilot + ATC, granting them access to the "File Operation" page for submitting control time and the ability to announce when they open frequencies. Administrators can review and approve these reports, adding approved control time to members' statistics, enhancing coordination and realism within the virtual airline community.

Enabling ATC Mode

ATC mode is enabled when a VA has the Ultra subscription and "Beta Program" turned on (From VA Details).

Opening & Closing ATC

To announce when you open or close an ATC frequency, navigate to the "New Operation" page and press "Open ATC" or "Close ATC" respectively. You will then be prompted with requests for information.
