Air Traffic Control
That's right! This is it! Your chance to experience the high-stress
world of an Air Traffic Controller with ATC Simulator!
ATC Simulator puts you to work inside the TRACON - at over 48 U.S.
TRACONs - and in front of a real radarcope as the departure or aproach
controller. You are the controller and it's your job to safely sequence
the aircraft, carrying thousands of passengers, for arrivals and
depatrures in your busy airspace.
To the uninitiated, they're all just blips on the screen, but to
the saesonend Air Traffic Controller, which is wath you'll become,
it's a challenging 3 dimensional puzzle solved by coolly and calmly,
sequencing, vectoring and stepping 'em down to create that "string
of pearls" that has them lined up on final and ready to be
handed over to the tower.
Sounds easy? Well think again! All you need is a 1 minute delay
anywhere in the system or some bad weather and you're then going
to have to stack them up in a holding pattern and then pick them
off one at a time for landing when a slot becomes available.
Minimum System Requirements: IBM compatible Pentium II 300 or higher
PC, Windows 98/2000/Me, 64MB SDRAM, Sound Card.
