    Choosing The Right Settings

    On Starting “The Eye” for the first time, it is a good idea to set a few things up so that you
    do not have any complications later on in the use of the program and so that you become
    familiar with the controls and facilities of the program.

Exploring The Map

Moving on to the ‘Map’ tab, you will
see the current status of the IVAO
network in a visual format - all
information displayed on a map.

When you first start flying online on
IVAO, you are given the SFO rating
(Second Flying Officer); once
completing 10 hours of flight time on
the network, your rank increases to
FFO (First Flying Officer) - other
ranks can be achieved by taking
written and practical exams with
IVAO. Due to the settings made
earlier, pilots ranks are represented
by different colours - pilots that are
an SFO are displayed as white and as
the colours darken, the rank of the
pilot’s increases.

If you move your cursor over a pilot
and use the right mouse button to
click on them, a line will be displayed - this line represents the route   Tip: You can zoom in/out on the map by using the

of the flight the pilot has completed and brown areas on this line         [F12]. Use the arrow keys, on the keyboard, to pan

Different visual representations correspond to different items when it comes to displaying airports. Where ICAO
codes of airports are displayed, this means that there is inbound/outbound traffic at that airport. Airports that
have ATC of some form are surrounded by a coloured circle or star; these include Ground (represented by a star),
Tower (represented by an orange circle) and Approach (represented by a red circle). Shown on the print screen
above, we have one airport with Ground and Approach control, one airport with only Tower control and another
airport with only Approach control.

                                                          Large blue circles represent observers - these could be
                                                          IVAO pilots or staff members that have logged onto the
                                                          network using IvAc to simply observer those pilots and
                                                          ATCOs connected on the network.

                                                          The dark blue sectors of the map are areas of controlled
                                                          airspace. These controllers will control you en-route if you
                                                          fly into their airspace. If EGTT_CTR was online, you would
