CONNECTING YOUR FLIGHT SIM TO OUR MULTIPLAYER SESSIONS

 

These instructions are for joining our active sessions. You will need a full working copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, or Microsoft Flight Simulator X and TeamSpeak.

Always join our sessions clear of all runways. Please join parked at a designated parking assigned area or enroute at cruise altitude. All other locations on the ground and in the air must be pre-approved by an air traffic controller before joining.

  1. Start TeamSpeak. Join the specified TeamSpeak Channel as listed on the calendar description for the session or event you want to join. The Calendar page will have specific TeamSpeak information for all sessions. You may obtain the IP addresses in this connection guide under IP Addresses and Connection Details.

  2. Session Password. After you have joined the correct TeamSpeak Channel you will find the flight sim session password in the channel description area, write it down for the next step.

  3. Start Your Flight Simulator. Click "Multiplayer". Click "Open Multiplayer Session"

  4. Enter Your Callsign In The Player Name Area. Please use realistic callsigns. A realistic callsign is defined as any aircraft registry number (Example: N3402C), or commercial airline flight number (Example: UAL1220). If you wish to accumulate logged flight time on our website the callsign you enter for this step should be exactly the same as the callsign you signed up with on our website. If you want to fly in our session as Delta_1330 and you signed up on our website as "Blue Eyes" you will not be credited. To collect time you will need to create a new callsign on the website to match your player name.

  5. Join The Session. Click in the "IP Address" box, and enter the IP of the server you wish to join. The game server IP addresses are available on the IP Addresses and Connection Details Page. You may copy and paste the IP address from our website to your flight sim by using "Ctrl+C to Copy" and "Ctrl+V to Paste". Please verify you are joining the correct IP and click "Search". After a few seconds you should see the session show up in the "Sessions" box of the multiplayer screen. If there is more than one session running choose the one you wish to join by left clicking with the mouse. Be sure to read the session comments.

  6. Enter The Session Password. Click Join and when asked enter the password you obtained from the channel description in TeamSpeak.

  7. File A Flight Plan. Once connected to both TeamSpeak and our session in Flight Simulator you will need to file a flight plan in our system. To file a flight plan open the chat window in Microsoft Flight Simulator (Depress the "Enter" Key it will automatically open). In the chat window enter your flight plan as text.

    Our system requires all flight plans to be filed in the following manner.

    +fp AAL1226 B737-400 IFR FL330 KLAX.LAXX4 DAG CLARR1.KLAS

     

    Flight Plan Examined:

    +fp (FP for Flight Plan) Code to Open Flight Plan

    B737-400 Type Aircraft
    IFR Type Flight Plan
    FL330 Requested Cruise Altitude
    KLAX.LAXX3.DAG..CLARR1.KLAS Routing

    To close your flight plan in the chat window type -fp. More help is available via the chat window by typing ?fp or ?help.

     

    Because of the many configurations of home networking we do not troubleshoot or support home networking. Your hardware manufacturer or ISP should be your first line of support.
