  7. https://discord.gg/NJUnsZ Nowadays, short- and medium-haul flights are still dominant in the VATSIM online scene. long-haul and transoceanic flights are known to be daunting and flight planning can present numerous challenges to even the experienced pilots - Operating across multiple nations and continents with vastly different route systems and airway structures can present obstacles to unfamiliar pilots (e.g. RAD and IFPS within Eurocontrol). Oftentimes its hard to do the route planning both quickly and realistically. Operations in oceanic areas feature special procedures such as ETOPS/EDTO, OTS systems (NAT/PACOTS), random routing, non-radar environment, among others. These are the most demanding real-world airline flying environments and can be daunting for someone without the vast amount of background knowledge (both aviation and non-aviation) needed. Long-haul flights steps up the stakes in flight planning significantly and calls for procedures such as re-dispatch, and precise fuel planning. Small deviations in wind aloft data will have a huge impact on the fuel burn, and no one wants to run out of fuel in the middle of the ocean. Plus heavier aircraft hitting their range will bring limiting performance issues that must be considered before takeoff. Meteorological information around the globe will be needed for a safe flight and landing; will need to be accurate to ensure precise fuel planning. Where to gather these info, and how to get them early so that we have time to prepare, is the key. Well don't you worry, we got you covered! At Project Firmament, we have been organizing long-haul and transoceanic flights and events on VATSIM for years. Our footprints have been over 6 continents, 5 oceans and countless countries around the world. Now, with our experiences in these aforementioned aspects, we want to help you to get started on the journey as well! Already an expert on these? Even better! I'm sure there must be something that we don't know, and others may be able to learn a lot from your expertise! Join The Server Now. Don't you wait. In case you have missed this, we have an event coming up this Saturday (Jul. 25) to kick off the server! Official VATSIM Event Link Event Sign-up So if you are still wondering "why long-haul", just join the event and we will show you!
  8. Saturday, July 25, 2020 - 0000z to 1600z This intercontinental groupflight event brings you up close to 2 poles of the earth - the High Arctic, and the “Third Pole” Tibetan Plateau; all the way from New York to Bangkok. With ATC coverage at orig/dest airports and enroute (partial. Although more are on the way!). Are you in for something truly special? Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone and into the vast unknown? If you do, tune in to our newest groupflight event – Revival of ULR. Time: Saturday July 25 00z onwards (Flexible, sign up for all options) Route: GREKI JUDDS CAM TOXAL Q850 YRI J563 YBC J561 YWK LAKES PEPKI EMBOK 6500N/05600W 6900N/05000W 7400N/04000W 7830N/02000W 8000N/00000E PIREL N611 DOSON R705 BRT M132 BD A935 LETBI B480 MORIT B330 JTG G212 XFA A581 SAGAG B218 LPB B346 NOBER View The Route Here / Charts for KJFK / Charts for VTBS If there is any further update, it will be posted in discord.

Adhere to the planned departure gate in event route above. If you have any problems, please advise us as soon as possible. SE Asia-NA used to be one of the major scenes for "ultra long-haul" flights. Both Thai airways and Singapore airlines used their A340s for flights to America, but these flights did not last long. However, in recent years, we are seeing a revival of ULH. With the EWR-SIN route resumed, and Qantas’ Project Sunrise, more non-stop flights are becoming reality as new aircraft with longer range are introduced. Ultra Long-haul is truly the culmination of commercial aviation technologies, and a testament to the human might of bringing our world closer together. With event ATC coverage on both ends, why not step up and join this trend today on VATSIM? Don't have time for the full flight, but still want to join the party? No worries! We have options to help you get underway at (unique and unfrequented) intermediate airports at the time of your choice. Just click here to find the right one for you! Our route offers multiple unique highlights off the beaten path – Canadian High Arctic, Fjords of Greenland, Arctic Archipelagos, Tibetan Plateau - and much more. There are ATCs to keep you busy as well – with ZNY’s event covering North America, VATPRC’s event in northwestern China, and multiple divisions lighting up the skies of southeast Asia – and we are working to get even more onboard. Your mic will surely be busy, while you will be enjoying a visual feast. What’s even better? We have done all the planning beforehand, so you can simply paste the route and call it a day! Hesitate no more, bring your favorite widebody, and join our weekend adventure! All pilots are welcomed to join.

By signing up you will receive all the updates. We are also offering these updates and flight planning help through our new discord server. We would like to also thank ZNY and VATSEA for organizing the respective events and providing ATC at both ends. Link to events
  9. Hi, Is the event this Saturday evening, or this Sunday evening (local time)? Marin
  10. Watch the Teaser trailer here. September, 2018. Hurricane Florence inches closer towards the Carolina Coast. Meanwhile, flight simmers are gearing up for an exodus... on VATSIM! Witness the new standard for flightsim visual arts. A short film by Project Firmament. Follow us on Twitter for updates on the film: @PrjFirmament Alternatively, we will also provide updates here - given the chance.
  11. I have been wondering this one problem: why can't we introduce HF frequencies for OCAs? Most add-on aircraft support HF radio, and I believe its not technically difficult to implement it into the current system. Hopefully the developers of pilot clients will be happy to make an update as well. Using VHF frequencies all the way is simply too unrealistic.
  12. Mar. 27 WXR FCST (+3 days) Departure Fields during departure time window (30/11z-30/15z) Generally fair weather is forecasted. The only model consensus so far is moderate precipitation along the Norwegian west coast that could have impacts on Oslo (ENGM). Snow is possible. For other fields: at this time, significant precipitation not expected. Conditions do not favor convection developments. Arrival Terminals during arrival time window (30/17z-31/02z) Precipitation is now less likely at Chicago / O'Hare (ORD). Precipitation is still likely at Toronto / Pearson (YYZ). Snow possible. The frontal system that produces these weather events will move eastwards. Exact impact on event fields will be determined by time. As time progresses on Saturday, ORD becomes less likely to be impacted, as Washington / Dulles (IAD) becomes more likely to be impacted. For other fields: at this time, significant precipitation not expected. Conditions do not favor convection developments. This information is for advisory purposes only and is subject to change. Next advisory: when significant condition warrants.
  13. Yes, that is why I tried to find consensus between forecasts from different sources before concluding, and there are some quite strong similarities between them. NOAA models have forecasts 2 weeks into the future so I [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume they should have "some" level of certainty. And you are absolutely right about the variability of conditions and reliability. I should have noted above that these prognosis are for information only and are subject to change. I will try to update should new developments occur. Marin
  14. Long-term Wxr Prognosis of Event Fields for Strategic Flight Planning Decision-making (+6 days) #1 (Mar. 24) Departure Fields during departure time window (30/11z-30/15z) Generally fair weather forecasted in Western Europe departure areas. Oslo / Gardermoen (OSL/ENGM): Precipitation possible, but not likely (Snow possible) Dublin (DUB/EIDW): Precipitation possible, but not likely Other fields: Precipitation unlikely at this time All fields: No heavy rainfall expected at this moment Arrival Terminals during arrival time window (30/18z-31/00z) Toronto/Pearson (CYYZ/YYZ): Precipitation LIKELY Chicago/O'Hare (KORD/ORD): Precipitation possible, but not likely (Snow possible) Other fields: Precipitation unlikely at this time All fields: No heavy rainfall expected at this moment. Moderate rainfall possible at YYZ. Forecast precision and details will improve as time progresses. Next advisory: TBD by community demands or when significant condition warrants.
