[29 JULY 2018 1100-2100Z] THE HOLLAND-AMERICA LINE


Recommended Posts

Come join the Boston Virtual ARTCC and Dutch VACC for a long-haul, trans-Atlantic, inter-division jamboree! From 1100-1400z on Sunday, July 29th, we'll have Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (IATA: AMS, ICAO: EHAM) staffed to the gills to accommodate departures, and will have all en route facilities staffed for a flight to Boston Logan Airport (IATA: BOS, ICAO: KBOS), where the Boston Virtual ARTCC will provide a full staff to sequence arrivals and get them onto the ground. Bring your favorite long haul aircraft, your business jet, or whatever you want, and join us for 7+ hours of packed airspace and professional air traffic control.

 

As well, we'll have a detailed pilot briefing released within a couple weeks that will offer details on general procedures that will be useful along the route, as well as specific information on the booking system we'll be using for this event (more information to be released about this later).

 

Lastly, we're excited to announce that this is just part 1 of 2. Later this year, we'll host the "go home" leg of this trip, the same facilities staffing Boston to Amsterdam. These events serve as a fantastic time to brush up on both international and American procedures, and prepare for the bi-annual Cross the Pond. We hope you'll join us on the 29th for this event, and look forward to seeing many of you there!

I'm excited to announce that ALL bookings are now filled for this event! Pilots can expect an email tonight (as well as a post here) with the final routes.

 

Interested in flying but don't have a slot? We'll do our best to get you in. Please bring extra fuel and expect delays however, as we are going to try and keep those who signed up on their slot times. Please also check this post for the finalized routes; flying a random route will make our jobs as controllers much harder and will lead to additional delays for sequencing.

 

I can't wait to see you all in the skies tomorrow! It's going to be exciting!

Well Krikor, I hate to do this, but I just found out I will not be able to keep my booking in the morning. There is no email address that I can see where I can report this to so I am hoping that you get this message out so maybe someone else can take my slot. Here are the details if someone wants them:
