For a period of 3 months (until the end of the year) we will have a trial period to monitor this project and, after an internal survey, we will decide if whether it's worth continuing with the new system or it's better to revert to the old one.

Thanks to Mr. Abbas Ataei (448528) to design the tour.


About holy month of Ramadan: 

It is considered the most venerated and blessed month of the Islamic year. The most prominent activity of this month is the daylight fasting. During the blessed month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink and other physical needs during the daylight hours. 
Every day during the month of Ramadan, Muslims around the world get up before dawn to eat sehri and perform their prayers. 
When Muslims hear “the call to the prayer” in the evening, they break their fasts. 
In this holy month, People refrain from lying, stating, anger, jealousy, greed, lust, backbiting, framing and gossip. The purpose of fasting is the soul and wipe out the sins of the heart.

As you know any IVAO division will be marked as "On Trial" at the point of its establishment. So do the Iranian Division. But according to email received from the IVAO Executive team, our division has passed all the requirements and expectations, and it is now a "Full IVAO Division".

On behalf of IVAO Iran Director, I want to thank all of our beloved staff and members for their efforts to achieve this goal. I've removed the "On Trial" flag of those staffs who had done their best and fullfilled their job and got the experience.

I also want to thank Roozbeh for his job as the webmaster in maintaining the site updated and functional and for creating our new logo based on the new IVAO branding policies and also want to thank Mr. Ali Abedi for his volountery efforts on managing and organizing our group flights and events.

Congratulations again,

2013-12-10 14 Dec | Crystal Skies event and Tabriz-Kish Groupflight

Dear friends,
Our next week's groupflight will overlap with the IVAO crystal skies event. It would be ideal if pilots and controllers participating in this event get the IVAO award, too.

2013-11-13 The IVAO Facelift

IVAO is active in over 50 countries and this year is celebrating 15 years service to the flight simulation community, however, over this time the identity of IVAO seems to have become fragmented and disjointed by the creation of various styles of documentation, logos, signatures etc, etc.
2014 will see the emergence of a new organisation branding style that will help unify everything from divisional and HQ logos, business cards, signatures, colours and fonts to mention just a few.
To start the ball rolling the Board of Governors has approved the new organisation logos. These can be seen on the PR logos page with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop versions being made available shortly.
The organisation branding is a very large project involving many people and departments which will take time to complete and we hope with the release of the new official IVAO logos we can start to bring together the many facets of our amazing community.

2013-11-04 KuMi Group Flight to OIII

There is a group of pilots from Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands and Austria who meet every Wednesday since 2002 (!) for a small competition, called KuMi. The main goal of this competition is to touch down at exactly 2100z. The winner will get to choose the next destination.
Their next destination will be in our division: Teheran, OIII in Iran and the Iran Division will provide full ATC service in Mehrabad TMA and Tehran FIR from 20z to 22z. They are a group of approximately 7 to 15 pilots (very IVAO experienced) so it gets always very busy around the aerodrome because everybody is aiming and planing their flights to arrive at 2100 UTC.


You can watch these two videos to see the amount of traffic which is expected!!

The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples. In 2013, for the first time, the Day was dedicated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to peace education, the key preventive means to reduce war sustainably.
To inaugurate the day, the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at UN Headquarters. The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents except Africa, and was a gift from the United Nations Association of Japan, as "a reminder of the human cost of war"; the inscription on its side reads, "Long live absolute world peace".
The IVAO Iran wants to held an event on this day to broadcast peace and friendship to the world. All of the IVAO members from every division are welcomed in this event.

The IVAO tracker records every flight data every 5 minutes. The maximum variation from your actual takeoff/landing time from the time you report is 4 minutes. If this variation exceeds, your leg will be rejected.

Secondly, please pay attention to the maximum allowed speed of every tour. You should not exceed any of the 2 speeds given. For example if there is the red line of Mach 0.78 and 470 Kts TAS, and you are flying with M0.78, you should also check not to exceed 470 Kts TAS.

2013-01-20 Thank you all!

Hello everybody, last night, we were all trying to get break the record. Unfortunately there were some minor and also major problems in the IVAN servers so we couldn't reach more than 2054 simultaneous connections! By the way, AEROSOFT, donated 2054€ to the poor people of Africa! This is the point! Peace ...

And the IVAO Public Relations Department decided to change the Crowded Skies award requirements. So, anybody who have tried to connect to IVAO servers (IvAp/IvAc) (even just for one time) between 18:40z and 19:20z, will give that award and the minimum 2 hours for pilots and 1 hour for ATCs is disregarded.

Check your profiles and if there's an award, congratulations, but if there isn't and you think you have passed the new requirement, just send an email to Maxime Esnau in English and write your VID, and tell him that you were ATC or Pilot at .

Finally, on behalf of the IVAO Iran Staff, want to thank all the Iranian members who were there, trying to break the record, by flying or by lightening up Iran FIR by connecting as ATC.

Thank you again for trying to have fun, to light up the IVAO Skies and the most important one, to help the poor people of Africa ...

2013-01-07 Website additions

As IVAO Iran webmaster, I want to introduce you some additions to our website. Now under Resources tab, you can find 3 more good tools, Flightplanner, SID/STAR Searcher and a Descent Calculator which are very useful for you. All of these tools are designed by Miguel Frias.

The flight planner allows you to make sure MS Flight Simulator will follow a specific route. Many times your Virtual Airline (VA) specifies a route which is not the same as the simulator's. This tool allows you to paste the intended route and it will create an FS2004/FSX-compatible plan file (.PLN) that you can download and load into the program. This planner uses AIRAC cycle 1213 (2012).

The Descent Calculator tool allows you to calculate the correct point where to start your descent (TOD = Top Of Descent).

The SID/STAR Searcher tool allows you to enter a SID or STAR designation and it will show you the departure/arrival route that the ATC has given you.

Thank you very much,

Take it as real as it gets ;)


2013-01-03 Important notice about sandbaggers

Unfortunately we've noticed that some of our members are not paying enough attention to their flights! The number of pilots who not fill their flightplan in correct way are increasing. Specially in the route and ETA and Fuel quantity.

In the other hand there are some pilots who start they flight and then leave their PC! We've seen some flights which were for example from Tehran to Mashhad at FL310 but after about 3 hours from airborne, the aircraft is in Kabul FIR or circling over Mashhad at its cruising level, FL310!!

IVAO has supervisors who check the traffics and even the controllers and if they recognize that the member is sandbagging (when online but not near PC and just increasing your time), they will suspend that member (click here to see the suspensions period table).

So, we kindly request all of our precious members, to pay attention to their IVAO experience and don't cheat themselves as most of the members are here to simulate as real as it gets!

We are aware of those controllers who just connect on non-busy airports just to gain time.

Thank you very much for your respect to others and sorry for inconvenience,
