The UK can be rather quiet on some nights but this is too our advantage - it means we can step into this new world in relative peace without having loads of controllers to face up to. In that sense it is much like our early days on FPI when it also had a few but growing numbers of ATC staff. At the same time IVAO is following the rules more closely and so, although quiet, we need to drag all the knowledge we used to have in early FPI days out of our skulls and start learning how to use it again. As a help to this I recommend the IVAO I-Pack tutorials which are nicely split into one page per topic so you can go through each at your leisure without feeling you are faced with a mound of new rules to learn. I had a chance to look through the I-Pack pages last night and they are nicely written. Some are a bit old but a lot have been revised this year. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of FrankTurley@xxxxxxx Sent: 26 August 2007 17:38 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: IVAO In a message dated 26/08/2007 17:31:47 GMT Daylight Time, bones@xxxxxxx writes: 2000 sounds good although I may try and plug in a bit earlier. If we all stick to the Isle of Man we could avoid having to co-ordinate with other controllers and test for lag and frequency loading. I'd be happy with circuit traffic or you could fly around the island and maybe land at Jurby or Andreas if your scenery has these (FS9 users only). The basic aim is to have a bit of fun, see if aircraft see each other correctly - both as visual models and in the right location (no lag) - and give some users a chance to plug in for a test if they've not used IVAO yet. bones I've been on IVAO a few times and never spoken to a soul! I guess I need to test my Teamspeak. Frank T.
