Pre-Departure Clearance Available at Memphis

2018-05-27 00:47:45 by Cardin Pelletier
Pre-Departure Clearance (PDC) is now available at three airports within the Memphis ARTCC airspace. Pilots will be able to take advantage of more expeditious service when flying out of Memphis (MEM), Nashville (BNA), or Adams (LIT) airports. No more waiting for clearance on a congested radio frequency. Controllers will be able to issue aircraft clearances automatically after reviewing an aircraft's filed flight plan, allowing pilots to have a written copy of the clearance rather than trying to copy down clearance items as they are read off to them by the controller.

For our controllers, the Pre-Departure Clearance Policy is effective immediately and can be found by going to Info > Downloads> Documents. Controllers should reference the associated training module, which can be found by login onto and going to My VATUSA> Computer Based Training (CBT), and selecting "ZME" from the list of facilities.

ZME Welcomes a New Mentor

2018-01-15 21:49:51 by Cardin Pelletier
Brogan Lopez is nearing his one-year mark for joining our team here at Memphis. Since that day, he has racked up over 400 hours of controlling time and has been through nearly 40 hours of
training. Recently, Brogan was awarded his C1 Controller rating and we are thrilled to have him join us as part of our training staff. As a mentor, Brogan will instruct students on S1 through S3 ratings and major endorsements, assist with controller examinations, and make recommendations for controller promotions and signoffs. Please join us in congratulating and welcoming Brogan to the training team.

Change to MEM_CTR sectors

2017-11-02 12:45:13 by Stu Limont
As you are aware, VATSIM operates a top down policy, however for years we have used MEM_05_CTR as our combined Center sector. This is a low sector which doesn’t seem to fit well with the VATSIM policy. Therefore, with effect from Thursday 9th November (our next AIRAC) we will be amending this and swapping a couple of frequencies around.

Our combined MEM_CTR sector will now be sector 33 (MEM_33_CTR). However this will be using 133.65 so there is no change to our combined CTR frequency. Sector 05 will switch to 135.9

To summarise, our main sector is now MEM_33_CTR, using 133.65.

A new POF file will be sent out with the new sector files next week. In the meantime if you have any questions or queries, please contact a member of the training team or a member of staff.
