VATSIM tips for a newbie
« on: July 10, 2011, 01:23:29 AM »
OK . . .

I just joined VATSIM as a pilot, and am looking for some Newbie tips.  I have observed communications with the _OBS, read through some of the Pilot Resource Center on vatsim.net

I'm not an actual pilot, but before VATSIM I have accumulated ~250 hours on FSX.  I am comfortable with pretty much every plane up through a King Air.

I'll take any and all advice.   ;D

A bit of general RT advice, but common mistake in VATSIM:

When an ATC tells you to stand by, don't say anything back. Just shut up and wait because that's what it means.

Not only on VATSIM but on IVAO as well if I'm the controller.  ;D
