Help / FAQ
Please, read the following lines before contacting any IVAO Slovak division staff member.
1. Registration / Log-in
You have to register if you wish to participate on SK DIV activities like events or tours that must be reported in our report system.
3 entries are required for registration: VID (your number received after registration at www.ivao.aero), name and surname. Any other entries, including e-mail, are optional.
Why to register also your e-mail address?
If you register your e-mail address, you can subscribe to news feed, event reminders and any other information about SK DIV in the future. Your e-mail address will not be public.
You will be automatically logged in after successful registration. After logging off by clicking on Log-out in user menu, you can log in again after clicking on Log-in.
ATTENTION: Make registration only when you are registered as a member of IVAO NETWORK and you have your own VID number. If you are not a member of IVAO NETWORK, make registration on the web site www.ivao.aero. DO NOT try to make registration with invalid or false data. Accounts made this way will be blocked.
