Here's an interesting video showing typical interaction with VATSIM on-line ATC.

Very nice video, Dave! Thanks for the link!

Are you or someone else in SAX use the virtual cockpit like the pilot in the video? If so, do you have any tips & trix for the setup to make things smooth with zooming and views? It looks very nice and more realistic.
Hmmm...back to practice. :wink:

I'm pretty sure that the pilot in the video is using the virtual cockpit view and an IR head tracking setup so everytime the pilot's head moves then the view will move. Sure makes it realistic!

Yes, just like Dave Blake said. He's using the virtual cockpit in a Level-D B767 and TrackIR (http://www.edimensional.com/). It does feel more realistic. I'm not sure how much horsepower ones computer would need for that fluid motion.
