Teamspeak

Sometimes it is far quicker, far easier and much more fun to actually speak to someone directly and the VATPAC TeamSpeak server may just resolve that for you.

VATPAC hosts a TeamSpeak server which is available to members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is an essential tool for co-ordinating with adjacent controllers, mentoring sessions, enjoying group flights together or simply having a chat. It is a great resource which is well used by the division. And best of all, like all other VATSIM services, it's completely free.
