Welcome to the Miami Air Route Traffic Control Center! The Miami ARTCC is made up of aviation and air traffic control enthusiasts who control the virtual skies from Tampa to Key West and points eastward over the Bahamas.

Flying in Miami?

Ever wondered why the controller changed the route you filed? Or why the controller assigned you a really low intermediate altitude when departing KFLL?

So you’re already a VATSIM pilot and you’re looking to take your flight simulation hobby to the next level. Or, perhaps you’re already a VATSIM controller looking for a new and fun place to control.
