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)
