Welcome to Boston Virtual ARTCC!
Boston Virtual ARTCC (BVA) is a free, immersive, and realistic air traffic control community for pilots and aviation enthusiasts. We provide air traffic control within the Boston ARTCC on VATSIM. In addition, we have an active community of pilots who work with the controllers to create one of the most realistic air traffic control environments available online.

BVA provides everything a pilot needs to get connected and start flying. Our extensive library of online materials is complemented by an active Virtual FBO, through which we provide live, in-aircraft coaching to new members. As a result of this library, we are an authorized VATSIM ATO, eligible to certify for the P3, P4, and P5 pilot ratings. Most importantly, BVA is a truly communal environment of pilots and controllers where everyone is willing to learn and happy to help.

There are no special requirements for BVA pilots. Simply decide where you wish to fly, connect to the network, file a flight plan (if necessary), speak to the relevant controllers, and start flying. If you are new to online flying, we'll be happy to help orient you to the VATSIM world. If you are a VATSIM pilot looking to take your flying to the next level, consider joining our active community of pilots.

Our rigorously trained and certified online controllers work together with our pilots to provide the most immersive, realistic flight simulation experience available from the comfort of your home. When you're ready to try us out for yourself, find out more about BVA and submit your application.
