Hello Morgan!

Welcome to Chicago Flights™ Controllers! Please make sure that you have read the Chicago Flights Controller Structure, have applied for the Controllers Group and download Flight Strips from FSOpen.co.uk. You have to register with FSOpen, in order to create an account, but registration is free; it can take up to 24 hours to have your account setup though.

Once that has been finished, a new forum section will be available to you with more information; including TeamSpeak login and IP information. Once you have the required software and TeamSpeak installed, we can talk a bit more about Controlling on the server.

Again Welcome and if you have any questions or problems, let me know, and I will help you sort them out! Wink

Welcome aboard Wyatt!

Sorry for the delay in my response. I do have one concern, and that is your age. You are currently 12 years old?

Before I add you to the ATC list I would need a consent/waiver form, from you parents. Would this be possible?

You may wonder why, but we utilize TeamSpeak3 and are all 25 years old and older. For you to be in TS with us, even for some ATC meetings, I would still need your parents "OK", before allowing it. Small hiccup...

Let me know...

BTW, good job on installing the software!
