  3. Hi Kean, Our training programmes follow the usual procedures whereby you express interest in becoming a controller with us on our website (as shown below), and once a place becomes available, you are contacted by the Training Department. You need to assign yourself to VATéir at this link. This process will take a day or two as it involves a Region transfer from the USA to EMEA. We are inside VATEUD (European Division), which is a Division of EMEA - one of VATSIM's 3 regions. Once you have been moved to VATéir, click on the section shown below: When you click on that, it will prompt you to put an expression of interest in for training. There is a waiting time of several months because of the amount of interest from candidates but it does move by much quicker than you think. The quickest way to pass the time is to get involved in the vACC by joining the Discord server and getting to know everybody, as well as flying around to get used to procedures as you have been doing. Please reach out to training@vateir.org if you require further information or have any issues with the process outlined above. Cathal

  7. Only one ( it is in-fact two things but for the purposes of immersion it is only one👀) thing to say………….#getitstafffed. In all fairness, @Rian OHalloranthank you for the hard work and dedication to the training programs over the last wee while (yes, that is a reference). It does not go unnoticed!!!!!
  8. Best of luck to the new kids on the block
  9. Congrats on the new roles @Phil Hutchinson & @Paul McDyer!
  10. Evening All! Coming to the end of a busy summer season, it's time for a quick training update! OBS-S2: Some great progress has been made in tackling the long waiting list which we faced at the start of the year. Due to the pandemic, we received an unforeseen influx in interest for training within the vACC over the last 12 months. I'd like to express my thanks to everyone for their patience up to now and I'm happy to say that thanks to the dedication and hard work of the mentoring team, we are making steady progress in getting new students started. I'm conscious that being on a waiting list for an extended period of time can be tiresome so, if any member wishes to confirm their position or seek an update, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me at training@vateir.org. As per usual, a massive thanks to @Ryan Meyrick as Training Manager and all of the mentoring team for their hard work throughout the summer. I'm also happy to officially welcome @Luke Brendan Murray to the S2 mentoring team! Luke joined us back in July and has been a great addition since then. Thanks for your help and dedication and all the best with the new role! S2-S3: The last six months saw one of the busiest periods for the S3 programme since I took the position of Training Director. We saw several students successfully progress through and attain their S3 ratings. Combined with an update and overhaul of the sessions and documentation to standardise them in line with the Basic/Advanced theme which is being rolled out throughout the entire training system, it was a great summer for the programme. We are continuing to take new people onto the programme and I look forward to seeing some new students behind the scopes in the near future! Thanks to @Conor O'Brien for his work and dedication as training manager over the last 10 months and with that, I'm happy to announce that @Phil Hutchinson will be taking up position as the S3 Training Manager as we head into the Autumn/Winter season! I look forward to working with Phil closely in the coming months and seeing the programme go from strength to strength. S3-C1: The C1 programme has also undergone a significant update with new documentation, training material, session plans and more. All currently under use as we have several students working their way through the programme. @Cathal Boyce has worked tirelessly creating all of the documentation listed above and bringing the programme up to date. The work involved in creating documents and sessions for a programme as complex as the S3-C1 cannot be overstated so thank you Cathal for all your work. With that in mind, another shuffle in Training Managers means @Paul McDyer will now take the reigns as C1 Training Manager. Once again, a massive thanks to Cathal for his dedication and hard work and best of luck to Paul in taking the programme to new heights! Training Policy Update: At long last I am delighted to finally release the updated VATéir Training Policy. As both the vACC and Network continue to grow and develop, it's important that our policies and procedures follow suit. The updated policy provides more clarity in certain areas of the training system while bringing joining procedures e.t.c in line with new VATsim systems. Massive thanks to @Cathal Boyce for his help with putting it all together and if anyone has any queries or questions regarding the new policy, please feel free to get in contact with me. I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer and I am looking forward to a busy winter ahead on the network. As always, I encourage anyone currently training to engage with it as best you can and get involved. It would be great to see some more #GetItStaffed evenings (@Paul McDyer🤩) and expect some more Student Saturday Events in the near future! As always, my inbox is open to anyone with a query or concern and I'll talk to you all in the next update! All the best, Rian. VATeir_-_vACC_Training_Policy_v1.2.pdf
  11. It's hard to believe it all started over a year ago now! It is definitely sad to see it go, but I look forward to all the events Gary has up his sleeve. Let's make the last one count ❤️
  12. Thanks @Nathan Gray and @Darragh ODonoghue for all your work on the TNL events - they've allowed us to showcase the awesome ATC that we have in VATéir 🙂
  13. 😢 well lets make it the most enjoyable and best one yet
  14. Hi all, Just a quick update from the events department. Following a discussion with staff, we have decided that Thursday Night Live tonight (30th Sept) will be the final edition of the event for the foreseeable. As we see the return of schools, colleges etc. it is of course becoming increasingly difficult to maintain TNL controller numbers during the week and we think its time to move on to bigger and better things. Since last July, we have had 31 TNLs and I'd like to thank both controllers and pilots for their support throughout. In replace of Thursday Night Live, we will be organising more Overload, regional and citypair style events once or twice a month which we believe will be more enjoyable and benefit everyone. Cross the Pond returns to Dublin on the 30th October, please keep your diary free if possible, as always with Eastbound we will be rostering from approx. 15z throughout the evening. Finally, some of you may have noticed @Darragh ODonoghue has been assisting with Events for the last couple of months, in particular social media and rostering. A big thanks to Darragh for the helping hand especially when I am out of action (🍺). Nathan.
  15. Hello lads hope its going well, Im looking into controlling in the Vateir region. I having trouble on where to find it. If I could get some help that would be great!
  16. Hi Kean! Thanks for the message and for the kind words. Hopefully you enjoyed flying in the last evening. I will PM you a link to our Discord in the meantime where you can get to know more people in the community
  17. I just thought i'd say hi, and say how great of an experience i've had so far while getting into the feel of vatsim. (i just recently started late summer, but have been simming since around march.) I highly appreciate how friendly this community is, and how great the controllers are. I am always exited to fly when i get the chance, and always have a great experience. I usually dont have the same experience i have then i would in america, but I prefer to fly in the EU anyway. I am irish-american so its nice to see a community based in ireland, like most other countries. I always fly when i get the chance. Keep up the amazing work! (im not a complete noob lol) Also, i had trouble getting into the discord, any help?
  18. Hi Nikolai, Unfortunately VATéir is unable to accept visitors at this time. We hope to be open to visitors in the future and when this happens, you will be able to find all relevant information regarding when and how on the VATéir website. Regards, Rian.
  19. Good day to all, I am a visitor from VATUSA and I am wondering if VATSIM Ireland is accepting visitors and if so what the requirements are However if they are not accepting visitors just wondering when it will be open Thanks 1416337

  21. The regionals are underrated! looking forward to it 😍
  22. good morning guys, for some reason the Vacc discord does not appear on mine anymore. may i please have a link to re-join?
  23. We're holding an info night for controlling Regional Airfields this Sunday 22nd at 1900z. It will last for one hour. The main aim is to offer some familiarisation to S3/C1 rated controllers and introduce S1/S2 rated controllers to the concept, or to further their current understanding. All VATéir controllers with S1 ratings or above can attend. We will have a presentation and information slides followed by questions. Feel free to read the Donegal/Knock COMs available on the website and come with any questions. See you then!
  24. Hi, Please email training@vateir.org and they will give you a hand with answering some questions. Thanks
  25. Good evening guys. Brand spanking new to this Vacc. Not quite certain where to begin. Can anyone maybe just point me in the right direction please. Apologies if this is not the correct forum for this.
  26. Hi all, It's been about a year and a half since our last donation drive. The cost of servers for VCCS, our site, other programmes and various other tech projects does add up and as such we are looking for donations for 2021/22. I've attached our Donations Agreement - this must be read before donating. You can donate here. Only donate if you are able to do so, and there is no need to put in a large amount. It's best to get a lot of smaller donations to keep us ticking over for the foreseeable. Thanks to all in advance! VATéir Donations Agreement.pdf
