Dear pilots,

Until few years ago, it was annual, popular, spectacular, huge and great fun! Then there was a natural break, until VATSIM Adria 
lifted the area. Now it is back and will be RE-WINDED after months of hard work and coordination with a dozen European vACCs.

Some of you already know it, the last one being live with hundreds of flights the whole day. One every 3 minutes at an airport that 
normally handles one every 15 minutes at a contra flow runway. Some of you will get the chance to learn it for the first time ever.

It's of course the Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics Rush - RE-WINDED event with a lot of traffic to/from Sarajevo (LQSA) and the 12
interesting partner airports the entire 10h event duration
. Some are online the entire 10h event, some half time and many 3h:

Full event duration partner airports:
- 12-22z: Sofia (LBSF) 240 NM
- 12-22z: Bucharest (LROP) 350 NM

Medium duration partner airports:
- 12-17z: Bratislava (LZIB) 280 NM
- 17-22z: Kyiv (UKBB) 660 NM

Regular duration partner airports:
- 12-15z: Tel Aviv (LLBG) 1080 NM
- 13-16z: Rome (LIRF) 300 NM
- 14-17z: Lisbon (LPPT) 1380 NM
- 15-18z: Budapest (LHBP) 250 NM
- 16-19z: Riga (EVRA) 840 NM
- 17-20z: Warsaw (EPWA) 550 NM
- 18-21z: Lviv (UKLL) 450 NM
- 19-22z: Salzburg (LOWS) 330 NM 

Beside the partner airports, will the 2 Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics feeder airports, Zagreb (LDZA) and Belgrade (LYBE) as well 
as the 3 alternate airports, Dubrovnik (LDDU), Split (LDSP) and Mostar (LQMO) be opened if needed and is covered by the CTR.

So, in case you still don't know what to do this Saturday 08 FEB 12-22z - try with buying proviant and locking yourself at home,
as if you were snowed in at the Sarajevo hills, and fly the whole day to/from Sarajevo and the 12 interesting event partner airports.

For further event info, charts and sceneries, please go to: and thereafter mark this Saturday 08 FEB with 
a huge X, so we together can RE-WIND the Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics Rush, making it one of the biggest rushes on VATSIM ever!

Thank you on behalf of VATSIM Adria & Event Partners:
BGvACC, ROvACC, vACC Slovakia, vACC Ukraine, VATIL, VATITA, Portugal vACC, VACCHUN, Latvia vACC, Polish vACC & VACC-Austria.

#543578 We encourage all pilots to check the events page at Saturday before their flight,
to obtain Sarajevo (LQSA) briefing and parking chart with recommendations for a enhanced event experience. Thanks! :)

#543701 Fresh from the press! Sarajevo (LQSA) and alternate Mostar (LQMO) pilot briefings just got revised.
Get ready for TODAY'S event by checking them, the airport charts and the optimized parking chart
due to the complex procedures and limited pariking space - which just makes the event more fun.
So prepare for a bit of it all, weather, holdings and very interesting Sarajevo (LQSA) procedures :)
