Our Story Explore our humble beginnings

Pleased to meet you We are Garuda Virtual...

Our team has been involved in the Indonesian flight simulation space since 2015, from the very beginnings of Indonesia's presence on the VATSIM Network. Now that the Indonesian vACC is well established, with a stable staff team and ever-growing ATC roster, our team took the initiative to address the needs and wants specifically of flight sim pilots, and so created this group. While there have been some successful Indonesian VAs, none of them have had a focus on VATSIM. We believe that with our expertise we can, and will, fill the niche of a VATSIM-based, Indonesian VA, and nurture our group to truly thrive, so that Indonesia's virtual skies will flourish with activity for years to come.

Flight simulation just got a lot more real Virtual Air Traffic Simulation Network

The Virtual Air Traffic Simulation Network — or VATSIM for short — is a global community with over 120k active members who participate by connecting their own flight simulator to the Network, and may also provide virtual air traffic control (ATC) services passing training, which is globally regulated, but locally designed. You will never want to fly offline again after experiencing VATSIM ATC!
