The mission of the Memphis ARTCC is to provide excellent air traffic services on the VATSIM network with professional and Southern hospitality.
To support this mission, the Memphis ARTCC strives to:
(1) provide as realistic a simulated air traffic control environment as necessary, by favoring a reasonable, common-sense approach to controlling on the network rather than strict adherence to realism;
(2) promote Southern hospitality, that is, to make reasonable accomodations to users flying through our airspace, which includes providing courteous, professional, and respectful service to all pilots, and refraining from appeals for disciplinary action, except for the most egregious deviations;
(3) maintain a roster of respectful, highly-motivated, well-trained, and experienced controllers; and
(4) provide a supportive and highly-educational environment for training student controllers.
