Welcome To CZEG

At CZEG Edmonton Virtual, we pride ourselves in our ability to provide professional, courteous and realistic Virtual Air Traffic Control (ATC) services to pilots flying on the Vatsim network.

We use real-world Canadian operating procedures as regulated by Transport Canada and Nav Canada.

Visiting Controllers

Visiting controllers need to understand the local rules and procedures of the Edmonton airspace and also the FIR itself. Once we have covered off the local stuff, we will conduct an OTS or sweatbox session to determine if you have grasped the concepts. The position you are customarily assigned to will be one down from the current ATC position at your home FIR.

The process is simple; sign in to our website using your VATSIM CID and Password. When you logged in you will see a new menu option Help Desk. Create a New ticket and be sure to select the Category "Visiting Controller" Fill out the remainder of the ticket form, submit and we will get back to you ASAP
