We look forward to having you!

How to Join

1.

Go to vatsim.net/join and read the documentation there. When you are ready, click Sign Up Page to begin the process.
At the end of the sign up form, select Region Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and Division Middle East and North Africa (VATMENA).

2.

Once your account is activated (in about 24 hours), you are able to connect to VATSIM as a pilot using a pilot client (we recommend watching one of the many VATSIM tutorials on YouTube); and using a controller client, as an observer only. If this is all you want to do, congratulations — you're set up! You can see a list of pilot and controller clients here.

3.

If you want to control here in Kuwait, email the VATSIM Kuwait Staff (see Staff/Contact) — state that you want to begin ATC training. Our staff will be in touch to organise your training. Good luck!

Of the following 4 options, select the one that describes you.


I want to join Kuwait as a visiting controller

Complete and submit the below form. If you are eligible, you will be added to our roster — this does not mean that you can control here yet! Our staff will contact you to arrange a session on the highest position you can control; after this session is succesfully completed, the mentor will approve you to control in Kuwait.

I'm inside the Middle East and North Africa Division (VATMENA) and I want to join Kuwait as a home member

NB: If you have not yet been assigned to any VATMENA vACC, and you don't yet have any ATC rating, you don't need to do the following steps - instead, contact us to organise your training.

Visit the VATMENA Helpdesk. Open a support ticket stating your VATSIM ID and current vACC; and that you would like to transfer to Kuwait.

If your transfer is successful, you will be added to the Kuwait vACC roster — this does not mean that you can control here yet! Our staff will arrange for you to have a session on the highest position you can control; after this session is succesfully completed, the mentor will approve you to control in Kuwait.

I'm inside the Europe, Middle East and Africa Region (VATEMEA), but outside the Middle East and North Africa Division (VATMENA); and I want to join Kuwait as a home member

Please contact the VATEMEA Regional Membership Team in order to transfer to the VATMENA Division.

Once your transfer has been completed, contact us to arrange training. You will only be assigned as a Kuwait vACC member once you begin ATC training.

I'm outside the VATSIM Europe, Middle East and Africa Region (VATEMEA) and I want to join Kuwait as a home member

Use the VATSIM Region Change Facility to request a transfer to the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Region, then the Middle East and North Africa(VATMENA) Division.

Once your transfer has been completed, contact us to arrange training. You will only be assigned as a Kuwait vACC member once you begin ATC training.
