... with no hyperlink to an event page/posting, no forum posts (VATUSA or VATSIM forums), no pilot procedures, no controller procedures, no controller sign-ups (unless I missed 'em), and no controller roster.

 

Sounds like fun!

 

LOL!

 

Thanks for the 411 guys.

Apparently it was unfortunately cancelled (the VATUSA calendar listing apparently got missed).

 

Chad, if you want to keep the spirit alive, just hop on the ZLA TeamSpeak server and I'll pretend that you did a "niiiice job rockin' those wings."

 

LOL Brad! 'sounds like a great opportunity for you to brush up on your light gun skills.

 

I'll put up a post on the Come Fly With Me board and see what feedback I get. It would be nice to at least have a VATSIM twr controller working the event.

I actually found a pretty good freeware scenery package for FSX. It was uploaded to simaviation on June 6 of this year.

 

"KOSH-Oshkosh Wittman Regional Airport Package" by Mike Pare

 

From the author: "KOSH Wittman Regional Airport photoreal scenery to let you join your friends online and fly into Oshkosh EAA Air Venture. This is a purpose built scenery for online enjoyment. AI traffic will not work at this airport. This is an approximation of what KOSH looks like every July during Air Venture, with custom ground markings, Runway Dots, plenty of GA and vintage aircraft parked around the field. Get online with some friends and enjoy!!"

 

After reading the RW arrival procedures I could see how it could become a real goat rope for VATSIM ATC to handle.

 

I'll fly in from KFXE Saturday morning for fun.

The biggest issue with running a successful OSH event (other than the VFR-phobia exhibited by most pilots on the network) is that ATC at OSH is provided almost entirely by sight, which short of setting up a flightsim-generated tower view that can be rather convoluted in some cases, making the use of a 'radar' client to provide services a severe kneecapping of the actual immersion.

 

Maybe down the line we'll get a solid vSTARS derived FSX/P3D-compatible tower view option, but until then, it involves the use of Euroscope .

... or the 3D view in VRC, which can be fun - especially if you haven't experienced an altered perception of reality recently.

You can only separate through the TRON view for so long .
