  4. I am delighted to announce that Evgeny Vygornitsk​y (862634) has accepted the post of Division Director for VATSIM Russia. Evgeny has given a lot to the Russian Division of VATSIM in his time as Membership Director and Deputy Director, also supporting the network centrally as a Supervisor and a key point of contact for a lot of other Russian membership issues. His contributions to the FS community are certainly not limited to VATSIM as he also dedicates a lot of time developing add-ons for FS9 which are widely available. Recent staff changes aside, this is a very exciting time for VATSIM in Russia. A lot of big projects to get more people online are overcoming a lot of inertia. To unsuccessful applicants and any other people in general who want to see this division grow, do not keep your thoughts to yourselves, get involved, engage with other members and your staff team so that we can get more people online using the abundance of wonderful freeware sceneries and excellent ATC on the network.

  6. It is with regret that I must announce the resignation of Sergey as VATRUS1. Sergey has been an [Mod - Happy Thoughts]et to the division in providing leadership and guidance to get VATRUS to the strong position that it is now in. Due to family and work commitments things are getting a lot busier and he has decided that now is the time to move on. On behalf of Kyprianos (his boss for most of his Directorship) and myself I would like to thank Sergey for all that he has done for VATRUS and wish him the best for the future. Regards,

  12. A clue though as a general rule to help you out, runway numbers are linked to the direction they point. If you are told runway 18, the runway direction is going to be 180 +/-5 degrees so if you're at an airport with just one runway, you want to taxi to the end such that, when you are lined up, you're facing south. If you've got 18L, 18C and 18R, these letters stand for Left, Centre and Right. If you're looking at the runways on a southerly heading, the one on the left would be 18L, the one in the middle 18C and the one on the right 18R. So at Gatwick it looks like you have two runways but actually 08L/26R is just a taxiway now so the only runway is 26L/08R. Last time I checked runway 26L had a heading of 262 (so westerly) so you need to taxi to the end of the runway that is nearest to the South Terminal to line up on it. If it's 08R you need to go all the way down to the other end. These are just guidelines, where possible it's definitely best to have the correct charts and just follow them. Hope this helps.
  13. A nice change from London departures, will see whether I can get my PC in shape for it!
  14. Hi Andy, Email Ivan Garcia (ivan dot garcia at vatspa.net) who will help get the ball rolling for departures out of Barcelona, if you go to the VATSIM France website (Google VATFrance) you need to email a lady called Cathy Mariani (cathy dot mariani at vatfrance.org) for coverage through France.
