Southern Africa Division

The Africa and Middle East Region of the VATSIM Network encompasses one of the most diverse and beautiful places on earth. From busy airports like Johannesburg and Dubai to cruising across the deserts of the Middle East or the Sahara, the Africa and Middle East Region has every kind of flight environment imaginable.

The goal of this region of the VATSIM Network is to facilitate air traffic growth, safety, and fun in Africa and the Middle East. Using real world procedures, regulations, and information, the region strives to help its divisions attain the maximum level of professionalism, realism, and fun. Striving for a simulation model, the Africa and Middle East Region Office works as a liaison between the divisions and the VATSIM Executive Committee, and advises its divisions on many issues, including training, all in the interest of realism.

Under new leadership, the region strives to establish a unique and unprecedented integration project that will enhance and streamline its members experience on the network, and make the experience easier and more enjoyable for first time flyers and professionals alike.
