Events / [3/10/2024] In Memory of Ira Robinson: Light Up New York
« on: February 29, 2024, 03:39:39 PM »


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the recent passing of Ira Robinson. Ira was well-known in the entire VATSIM community, holding numerous roles within VATUSA and VATSIM. Among them, he served as VATUSA2, the VATUSA DCRM, ZNY ATM, VATNA Deputy Director, and also served the VATSIM Membership Department.

Ira loved VATSIM, VATUSA, the community, and his family. Ira was a wonderful man and role model and will be missed by many. To honor his memory and the meaningful connections he fostered with everyone, the New York ARTCC is honored to present Light Up New York.

Please join us throughout the entire New York airspace as we provide ATC for not just the city Ira loved but a community he loved, too.

In addition, we are honored to have members of the vUSAF join us. They will perform a Missing Man formation flight over Ira’s favorite airport, Newark Liberty International Airport. Please note that any inbound traffic will be held beginning around 3:45pm ET before the formation flight occurs around 4pm.

Date & Time: March 10th, 2024, 2:00pm → 6:00pm Eastern (1800z-2200z)

Events / [2/23/2024] Parkway Power FNO
« on: January 24, 2024, 11:38:17 AM »


Still on a high from the Northeast Corridor FNO? Been on a plane and a train, but really want to use an automobile to complete the trifecta? Boy, do we have a treat for you! Join us for the Parkway Power FNO, another collaboration between the Washington, New York, and Boston Virtual ARTCCs. This special event celebrates parkways - they’re not highways or roads, but nonetheless a pinnacle of American infrastructure.

Start your journey north on the Baltimore/Washington Parkway, one of the many parkways administered by the National Park Service in the DC metro region. Make a stop at Thurgood Marshall International Airport (BWI), a regional hub for Southwest Airlines and the go-to airport for many Maryland travelers. You’ll enjoy easy access to casinos and the nightlife of the Baltimore port.

Continue north and enter the Belt Parkway, leading to the confusing ring-road surrounding John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Make a wrong turn and miss your terminal? Looks like you’re flying Spirit! Home to one of the busiest airports on the VATSIM network, precision is key here as you navigate the narrowly complex airspace with the help of our controllers.

Finally, you can head even further north and join the Blue Hills Parkway on your way to Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS). One of the gateways to the world, finish your night, or set out for a trip across the Atlantic.

Similar to the Northeast Corridor, we strongly recommend spreading out your flights to avoid congestion at any one airport. Expect delays and diversions as we team up to bring you another terrific event!

Event Fields: KBWI, KJFK, KBOS
Date & Time: February 23rd, 2024, 7:00pm → 11:00pm Eastern (2359z - 0400z)

Events / [5/12/2024] It's Pronounced "Lawn-Guy-Land"
« on: January 17, 2024, 08:03:13 AM »


Two years ago, we educated the community about pronouncing Westchester correctly (it’s pronounced “wes-ches-tah”). As Memorial Day weekend approaches, the New York ARTCC believes it is our civil duty once again to declare the proper pronunciation of a popular summer destination: Long Island Lawn-Guy-Land. Don’t think about saying it any other way or our controllers will taxi you to a blast pad and blast you into nonexistence.

ANYWAY, fly into or out of our mainstay Long Island Lawn-Guy-Land airports, Islip (ISP), or Republic (FRG) for a fun Sunday afternoon! Enjoy some scenic views of this very long island and annoy residents by flying too low.

Event Fields: KISP, KFRG
Date & Time: May 12, 2024, 5:00pm → 8:00pm Eastern (2100z - 0000z)

Events / [7/2/2024] NTHNS Hot Dog Eating Contest
« on: January 17, 2024, 07:25:55 AM »


The week of July 4th in New York City includes many different activities. You can enjoy the classic parades and fireworks, or, hear me out, jam your mouth (or watch others jam theirs) full of hotdogs at the annual Nathans Hot Dog Eating Contest!

For 52 glorious years, tourists and locals have flocked to Coney Island to enjoy or even participate in this tradition. While this network hasn’t been around nearly as long, this July 4th week, instead of jamming your mouths with hot dogs, you can jam up the runways at LaGuardia (LGA), home of the NTHNS 5 departure!

Event Field: KLGA
Date & Time: July 2nd, 2024, 7:00pm → 10:00pm Eastern (2300z - 0200z)
