Philip Katz, Dispatcher

Email: philip@flyvblue.org | Location: United States | Since: July 2014

Philip Katz works as a dispatcher for Virtual Blue. Born to an American father and a Taiwanese mother, Philip spent most of his early years in Taipei, Taiwan. His love affair with aviation began in 2006, when he received a copy of Flight Simulator 2004 for Christmas, and he has been hooked ever since. After several years of offline flying, Philip finally had enough of FSX's "wonderful" default ATC and mustered the courage to join the VATSIM network in December 2012. In April 2013, he decided to take his passion one step further by signing up to become a controller at the VATSIM Boston ARTCC (vZBW). He has since worked his way up to his C1 Controller rating and has served as a staff mentor since January 2014. Beyond the world of virtual aviation, Philip is a sophomore at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, where he is pursuing a major in the College of Social Studies. Philip's experience on VATSIM - both as a controller and as pilot - is what inspired him to apply for the position of airline dispatcher at Virtual Blue. He is dedicated to ensuring that the pilots at Virtual Blue have the best experience they could possibly have with the airline and on the network by briefing them on their upcoming flights . Feel free to e-mail Philip or chase him down on TeamSpeak if you have any questions or concerns. Happy flying!
