Aurora and Altitude are respectively the new ATC and Pilot client softwares developed by IVAO for use on their multiplayer network. This weekend, IVAO team will stream keynotes to introduce their new softwares on their official YouTube channel.
The most important event on IVAO network is planned on next December 07th : Crowded Skies 2019. Last record was set at 3003 connections, cumulating both ATC controllers and pilots, try to beat that !
IVAO network has been using the Ivac ATC client and Ivap pilot client softwares for about 15 years if I remember well because I was joining the main developer of Ivap to an airshow in 2005.. and we were still testing the pushback feature to be included with Ivap. It was already time for new generation softwares, and IVAO network is also willing to change the servers, which were at the beginning of this complete project.
IVAO network invites the virtual pilots to participate in their 20th Anniversary and the top event is Crowded Skies, on December 1st. Ribbon rewards and a large ATC coverage will motivate the pilots, especially around 1900Z.
It’s already the 11th edition of Crowded Skies on IVAO network. This year, they hope to beat the last record of 2,303 simultaneous connections. For more information and requirements list, you should visit their forum, with your IVAO ID and password as the forum is accessible to registered members.
IVAO members received an email from the network to inform them about Crystal Skies event to take place this saturday December 14th. Their goal is to achieve the maximum number of pilots and controllers connections between 06:40 pm and 07:20 pm UTC to gather funds for humanitarian aid project. The sponsor Aerosoft will give 1 Euro for each connection during this time frame. Pilots have to fly for 2 hours, and the controllers must manage their ATC position for 1 hour at least.
The young multiplayer pilot community launched by REX, Latitude, will see its economic features change next month in February. They turn optional and they will be more oriented on aircraft sales, purchases, cash or by credit. Read further details in their forum.
Maybe this will be your first mark in your calendar 2013, Crowded Skies 2013 on January 19th. Last year there were 2,300 connections to the network and it is hoped to be even busier this year. Check your headset, microphone settings and sound levels.
