I'm curious about the quality of the various ATC simulators.  I'm aware of one other one, ATC Simulator 2 at http://www.atcsimulator.com/ but don't know much about it.  Does anyone here know which of the ones mentioned in this thread might be the best?
It appears you can by an old version of ATC Simulator 2 from the site at a significantly lower price and then upgrade it to the newest version.  If it's a good program, it seems like a good deal.

I bought ATC Sim 2 and regret it.  It looked like a great program before I hit the purchase button in Paypal.  It is tedious and takes many many hours to perfect it.  You have to edit a lot of things to make it realistic and the voice recognition could take you years and you still could have problems with it.  These are my personal feelings on the product which I believe you asked for  Cheesy  Cool

Thanks Jason, I do appreciate the feedback.  I've read some other comments on various sites that ATC Sim is not very good, but have no experience with it.
I thought I'd give the one at Xavius.com a try and see how I liked it.  I'd like to become a VATSIM controller, but honestly just don't have the time to devote to it right now.

I second Jason on this one, it's not worth the money. Even though the price has dropped, the STARS setup is way off. The default settings for arrival and departure flows for the airports are way off. It takes a few days to match everything up to the RW. And the Speech Recognition is to slow and very hard to teach. I will continue to wait for the ultimate sim ATCC 2.0.

ATCC looks interesting.  I downloaded ver. 1 and am going to play with it a bit.  From reading in their forum, there doesn't appear to be any set timetable for version 2 to arrive.

In my opinion, ATCC is the best free ATC simulator. Version 2 will be even better, with many new features. However, I've been waiting the release of this version for more than 2 years already...  cry

VATSIM is great (especially with events)

ATCC2 is going to be very interesting....many virtual controllers are anxious as to the release date of the product.
