who have struggled to get SAPI 4 to work have had better results with
SAPI 5. Please note that this distribution of the software does not
include any of the SAPI 5.1 runtimes - you will have to download and
install them yourself. Instructions for doing so are included in the

January 16, 2016 - ATCsimulator®
Turns 15 Today Dear air traffic simulator community,
Today marks the 15th Anniversary of the publication of ATCsimulator®.
I want to thank the aviation community, and the 75,000 or so customers
for your support in the past 15 years. I especially wish to thank AVSIM
for their support in keeping ATCsimulator® alive in the minds and
hearts of those seeking a career in air traffic control. I am looking
forward to an even brighter future with many new challenges and new
ideas in air traffic simulation in pursuit of the career and hobby that
we all love.
I never dreamed that ATCsimulator® would have achieved such success
in the past 15 years; you have made my dreams come true. I thank you
from the bottom of my heart, sincerely, Russell B. Davis/aerostudios.
My wife, Dr. Teresa Davis,
Ed.D., has just released her new book 'Victory Over Anger'.
This book can help anyone who is struggling with anger issues. Taken
from many years of her
personal experiences, (some content relates to how ATCsimulator came
to be). You will find
this book not only helpful, but entertaining as well.

To create the most realistic simulation products using current software
technology. Todays user is intelligent, sophisticated and expects the
ultimate in realism, as close as can be achieved. We do not believe
in selling a "game" version of our product as a "watered-down"
edition of a so-called "professional" version. Our products
will maintain the highest quality, and will replicate the real-world,
maintaining a balance between hardware constraints, and value-added
playability. We believe in simulating the real-world as it is, because
we believe the user is hungry for, and entitled to, the truth. But,
this is after all, a game meant for the purpose of entertainment and
is in no way intended to replace professional ATC training.
