A quick note for you online simmers to let you know that VATSIM will be down for scheduled maintenance from 28 September 2021 at 23:00 UTC with an estimated completion of 29 September 2021 at 01:00 UTC.
During this time, the full network will be offline, meaning you won’t be able to connect at all. This will also affect some websites during this period. This scheduled downtime will allow the team to support network advancements in the immediate future and going forward.
It is worth noting that the downtime is not to deploy the VATSIM Velocity update, as this is still being tested and tweaked.
As a quick reminder, VATSIM’s popular Cross the Pond event will be taking place in just over a month on October 30th 2021. You can read a bit more about that event here.
