IVAO open beta to start on December 21

Dec 16, 2019 | by Sérgio Costa

One of the goals of the organization was for the new software to be brought live to everyone before the end of the year.

IVAO open beta

IVAO announced today that the new version of their softwares. Both the ATC and Pilot clients were overhauled, and they will be released together, after IVAO’s keynote stream on Saturday, 21st December 2019 at 1830z.

One of the most welcome addition is the fact that “both the ATC Client software and all sector files are stored on IVAO’s servers. Members will not have to worry about updating their software or sector AIRACs as everything will be done automatically upon the launch of the Client.

There’s also a new software to replace the one air traffic controllers currently use to enjoy a realistic tower view using their flight simulator when controlling. IvAi is being replaced by IVAO Connector: Artifice.

Read the full announcement here and get ready as multiplayer networks are working hard to bring their services to higher standards.
