This Monday we continue with our inspection of the hubs. So far things are looking good.
Tonight inspection we will be heading to the city of "brotherly Love" KPHL.
There is a great freeware airport for KPHL from Sun Sky Port. They have both FS9 and FSX, it is payware quality. www.sunskyport.com/sceneries

We will depart CYHZ Helifax because I know they will be online Monday night and the chance of there being bad weather is always good.

Route: ALLEX ENE BOS CCC SHERL J121 PLUME J121 MANTA J121 BRIGS JIIMS2 601sm Even FL

Time: same as always 0015z per-flight, depart 0100z (7:00pm Central)

For the West Coast pilots, I would depart KPHL and fly to CYHZ. They are on later to allow for west coaster's to fly. Route: DITCH J225 JFK PUT J42 BOS J55 ENE ALLEX CETTY FUNDY8 Odd FL

We would greatly appreciate some ATC coverage for our arrival into Philly, and would like to request that, at the very least, NY_CTR is staffed.  Expect the first of us to enter New York airspace around 0200Z, with an inbound flow for approximately 90 minutes.

Fort Worth (vZFW) / ZFW/ZME LOAs out of date
« on: January 12, 2015, 01:53:29 PM »
Hello, I'm planning a flight KMEM-KDFW and was trying to read up on the SOPs for pilots flying between the two ARTCCs.  However, the LOA on file in both ARTCCs is 7-8 years out of date and references the Bonham (BYP) STARs which no longer exist.  I think it's time you and ZME draft a new LOA using the new RNAV STARs.  Meanwhile, what should I expect for my arrival into KDFW?  I'll be using the BRDJE arrival with a FEWWW transition.

Events / [IDEA] Transcontinental fly-in
« on: November 06, 2014, 07:05:45 PM »
Now about a week and a half since we have submitted the first idea and two reoccuring themes have emerged. The first one is that this is not meant to be a second "Light Up America". We intend for this to be more of a "Cross the Pond" style event with great organization. The second theme is about pilots ignoring "the middle guys". Well this going to change!

Presenting...
[size=]From Sea to Shining Sea- In Two[/size]

Act One
Departure Airports: KBOS, KJFK, KIAD, and KMIA
Arrival Airports: KMSP, KIND, KDFW, KMCI

Act Two
Departure Airports: KMSP, KIND, KDFW, KMCI
Arrival Airports: KSEA, KDEN, KLAX, KSFO

Join the fun for one leg or both! Middle guys need not worry... you will get enough action to go around! We would expect to have fully staffed departure and arrival airports and if possible, centers for most artccs. Time frame for event I think would be around January to February in order not to interfere with any other major events.

As always I am open to suggestions and I hope we can get this started!

ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW

Here's an idea for the event coordinators to consider. It's been floating around for a while, and it's starting to gain support on Vattastic.

What if we had an event similar to Cross the Pond, but instead of going transoceanic, we go transcontinental? A fly-in event where pilots would take off from some airport on the east or west coast and traverse the country to land on the other side, all with full ATC from DEL to CTR. The entire country would be lit up with all ARTCCs (possible exception of ANC and HNL) participating at least on the CTR level, possible participation from VATCAN, airports on both the east and west coasts fully staffed, and pilots could book slots from New York, Boston, Miami, and Washington to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle (to name a few). Combine the event traffic with the regular weekend crowd, and you've got the makings of a great experience for controllers and pilots.

In terms of timing, I'm thinking a Saturday in July or August would be ideal, and maybe 1400Z-0200Z on the chosen day?

Events / Cross the Pacific WB 2014 - Why was it never promoted?
« on: November 01, 2014, 10:35:45 PM »
Apparently Cross the Pacific WB 2014 is tonight, and many pilots first heard of it within the past hour on Vattastic.  Pouring over the flight sim community boards, I found no mention of this event aside from the page on the VATUSA event calendar.  Why was this event not advertised anywhere else?

Join us as over 40 NYARTCC controllers from all around the world congregate in Newark, New Jersey. Controlling LIVE from one room, we will light up NYARTCC and work together in person to guide you safely in and out of our magnificent variety of airports. It will be a great experience for the controllers, and for the pilots, who will be handled just like it was real world operations. Our controllers will be ready, so be sure to join the fun.
