Controlling Software — vStrips Last updated: 2023-10-08

vStrips is a web-based simulation of the paper flight progress strips used by FAA controllers in air traffic control towers. The application is used alongside a primary controlling client, such as CRC. Controllers logged in to the same vStrips facility share a set of flight strip bays that automatically update whenever a controller adds, moves, edits, or deletes a flight strip.

vStrips also offers a variety of features that mirror realistic workflows, including the ability to add separators between flight strips, create custom half-strips for temporary or VFR flight plans, and offset strips to the side of a rack.

You can access vStrips and its documentation by clicking here, and refer to our Coordination and Scratchpad SOP for standardized strip marking information.
