Welcome to the Cleveland ARTCC, a facility within the VATUSA division of VATSIM.

Cleveland ARTCC (ZOB), is home to some of the world's busiest airspace, handling traffic into our major (KDTW), the larger minors (KCLE, KPIT & KBUF) and a host of smaller class C and D airports. ZOB also handles large amounts of traffic both from and to Toronto, New York, Chicago, Boston and Washington.

ZOB is undergoing some exciting changes, with this website still undergoing revisions, several new additions to senior staff and training staff, and a recent influx of new students!

Whether you are a new controller looking for a home, or a pilot looking for a challenging airspace to fly in (ZOB weather is often turbulent and challenging), ZOB is the place for you!

Stop by and feel free to look through our resources and materials. Check back for updates on the new website!
