The International Virtual Aviation Organisation, IVAO for short, was founded in 1998 to provide an online platform for flight simulation enthusiasts to enjoy their hobby in a simulated real-world environment, in company of other people, flying or providing Air Traffic Control services.
IVAO is a legally registered not-for-profit-organisation (NPO) under Belgian law. It has a multi-layered management structure to ensure it is strategically governed in a fair, legal and transparent way. All IVAO's services and software will always be provided free of charge as the organisation's costs are covered by private donations and corporate sponsorship.
The Sudanese Division provides localised information for its members and is the first point of contact for most matters. The Sudanese Division is responsible for publishing documentation, procedures and charts for the Sudanese airports and airspace as well as organising events and tours and providing training for its members.
