Greater Detroit VI - 12/9/07 - Starting at 8pm ET


Recommended Posts

As the year draws to a close, what can virtual pilots look forward to? Nothing other than flying to the motor city for the Greater Detroit VI presented by ZOB ARTCC and sponsored by Flight1! Each year this event gets better and better. This year as we celebrate number 6 we will out do ourselves to make this the event of the year!

 

Sunday December 9th

8-11pm ET (0100-0400z)

KDTW (Wayne County International Airport)

KDET (Detroit City Airport)

Pilot's are encouraged not only to fly into the motor city, but to participate in our screen shot contest! The best screen shot will win an opportunity to choose, FREE, any item Flight1 offers. Visit zobartcc.org for details and contest rules.

 

Perhaps you want to want to celebrate 6 another way. Perhaps you want to fly a Boeing 7 "6" 7, perhaps an A340-"6"00, a "6" seater aircraft, or even fly from the "6th" US State to join the union. It's all up to you but 6 is the number. Anything you can do to fly in using the number 6 is all we ask. Your creativity using the number 6 will be judged on submitted screenshots.

 

Be creative, we will too!

 

Cleveland ARTCC wants to end their 2007 event season with a bang and what better way than to finish it with our most popular event of the year! Mark this date on your calendar because you don't want to miss it!

Satan was a military callsign, but I heard it's been disallowed by the PC police.

 

But I suppose on Vatsim a flight of six F6F Hellcats under callsign Satan 666 escorting a B6 (Jet Blue) flight would be interesting.

 

Full moon on 9 December? Might need a few supervisors around.

Mathew - can you clarify this is Sunday, the 9th 8-11 ET or is that Sunday, the 9th 0100-0400z (which on the east coast would be Saturday night).

I doubt we would be able to staff Selfridge, since it is not in the Detroit TRACON. After all, it is the Greater Detroit VI!

But it would make me happy

 

Yeah its fine. Just thinking it be awesome having it open. I know I would fly it.

 

I plan on flying. D98 - 57D - KPTK - KYIP - KDET - KMTC - D98. Could we get Selfridge Approach?

 

You gotta think, depart KDET to the north. Detroit approach doesn't extend to far north of of KDET. Turns to Selfridge Approach quick.

 

I'm not trying to bother you a lot, I just get excited when FS stuff happens in Michigan in General. Maybe one of these times some will do a good scenery for Detroit .

 

Thanks,

Jake
