In 1955, Atlanta Mayor William Hartsfield declared Atlanta to be the "City Too Busy to Hate" instead focusing on economic growth and civic order.

In 1971, the Airport was named after William B. Hartsfield and has become the busiest airport in the world.

Events / [3/10/2024] In Memory of Ira Robinson: Light Up New York
« Last post by Daniel Sirota 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)

From an aircraft manufacturing plant during World War II to the busiest passenger airport in the world, the land that O'Hare International Airport currently sits on has been used for aviation activity for almost 100 years. Originally Douglas Field, then Orchard Field, the City of Chicago gave O'Hare its current name in 1949 to honor Edward O'Hare, the U.S. Navy's first flying ace.

A shining symbol of the jet age, O'Hare sported innovative features like the first jet bridge, underground fueling, and rail access from downtown. The airport is always changing, evolving to meet the shifting needs of aviation in the modern age. Come fly with us and celebrate 80 years of O'Hare International Airport.

Event Field: Chicago O'Hare International Airport [KORD], Chicago Midway International Airport [KMDW]
