you have any desires to become an air traffic controller, then I
would definitely recommend ATC2. It is without a doubt the best
rendition of this particular facet of aviation." Alex Esguerra
- AVSIM Reviewer.
to read the complete AVSIM review.
AVSIM is one of the leading aviation gaming websites.
Mr. Davis has been a computer programmer since 1980. His
first commercial program was titled "Guitari"
for the ATARI 400 computer. Mr. Davis continued to write software and teamed
with Wesson International to create additional European sectors for the
II, and ATC FOR WINDOWS
products in the late 1980s and early 1990s. (TRACON
is a trademark of Wesson International). In the mid-1990s,
Mr. Davis worked for the Civil Aeromedical Institute (CAMI)
in Oklahoma City for a research project involving datalink in the terminal
environment. Mr. Davis skill was crucial in maintaining the air traffic
and developing scenario tools and maintaining audio/visual equipment used
to capture critical research information. With exposure to TRACON-Pro,
and the expense involved, Mr. Davis decided to use his skill and experience
to develop a realistic simulator for the PC gaming community. The vision
was born. Mr. Davis went on to work for companies such as McDonnell
Douglas Training Systems, Boeing
Aerospace Operations, Abacus
Technology Corporation and Cherokee-CRC.
Under contract to the US Navy
E-6A/B program, Mr.
Davis developed a stand-alone part-task-trainer of Smiths
Management Computer System.
His role with all of these companies allowed him the opportunity to further
enhance his air traffic simulation capabilities. All-in-all, ATCsimulator®
are the result of nearly 30 years of research and development and love of
air traffic control by Mr. Davis.
Unlike other ATC sims, ATCsimulator®2
does NOT require an internet
connection, nor is it dependent upon another application, and/or
another user. This product is completely, unequivically stand-alone!
The way software should be!

For those of you wishing to utilize speech recogntion,
USB headsets are not recommended. A standard analog headset that uses
the MIC input of your sound card produces superior response to that

when a standard analog headset is utilized. This information is most
applicable when using the shareware program ATA (Air Traffic Assistant)

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.
