Hello Deon,

The event information posted above is now final. It can be posted onto the event calendar as is.

The only information that will be updated includes, flight advisories for pilots, and the oceanic portion of the route, which cannot be finalized at this time, as in the case with the routes for Cross The Pond.

Like CTP, we have a system in place to deliver these routes before the event, but it is always helpful to update those routes for those who cannot receive them via email. We do appreciate it if you can help with that.

I updated it to state "more info will be provided". If you have any question please let us know.

Thanks again for your help,

Yilin Wang
