This is the software we use to communicate via voice. We encourage all members to come onto Teampseak when flying around on the Fly UK FSD server, there is a Flying Club channel on the Teamspeak server especially for this. You'll be able to meet and talk to other members who maybe flying around at the same time.
Fly UK FSD - We encourage all members to come and fly for the flying club online, this way you'll see others and have some traffic. Flying offline VFR with no traffic can be a bit boring. To connect to the FSD server you will need FSCoPilot and FSINN installed. Click the 'Training & Help' button above for a PDF guide on how to setup the software, alternatively you can book a course with the Training Academy.
IVAO & VATSIM - You can also fly online on IVAO/VATSIM. When doing so, you will need to use your aircraft registration as your callsign, not your UKV pilot ID for a VFR flight.
