Events / Northeastern Corridor 2019 [08FEB 2359-0500z]
« on: November 13, 2018, 08:29:02 am »


The New York, Boston, and Washington ARTCCs are once again teaming up to bring you an FNO like no other! We'll be lighting up the Northeastern United States, renowned for it's busy airline commuter and business service, and bringing service to three of the major metropolitan airports of the area: Boston (KBOS), Newark (KEWR) and Washington-National (KDCA). We welcome all pilots and aircraft to come and join us for this chance to fly with ATC service in one of the most busy and congested air spaces in the country!

Events / BVA GA Fly-In - "New York State": KALB, KSCH [29JAN 8 -11pm ET]
« on: October 03, 2018, 07:34:01 am »


Take a day off from your busy routine and drive out to your local hangar to knock the cobwebs off your favorite General Aviation (GA) aircraft...anything from a single piston engine Cessna to a twin-jet Citation.

Then, join the rest of the BVA Community for the GA Fly-In, which will visit different parts of the country famous for their scenery and general aviation presence.  Look for several local (Tower) controllers at many Class C and D airports staffed under one Approach or Center controller. Pilots are encouraged to fly IFR or VFR between the featured airports, or fly into the event from afar!

For more information and event downloads, visit the GA Fly-In page.

In the Regional Circuit, controllers fully staff two regional airports, providing complete 'gate-to-gate' coverage over this special four-hour event. The focus airports are typically 80-200nm apart, and a high volume of pilots operating in this compressed airspace means the Regional Circuit provides optimal conditions for congested frequencies and busy airways.

Join the controllers and frequent pilots of the Boston Virtual ARTCC for an evening in Connecticut. The focus is on the Y90 Bradley TRACON area, including KORH, KHFD, KCEF, and, of course, KBDL.

We hope to see you there!

Events / [15 December 2018 1300-2300z] The Holland-America Line
« on: June 30, 2018, 12:03:51 pm »

Come join the Boston Virtual ARTCC and Dutch VACC for a long-haul, trans-Atlantic, inter-division jamboree! From 1200-1500z on Saturday, December 15th, we'll have Boston Logan Airport (IATA: BOS, ICAO: KBOS) staffed to the gills to accommodate departures, and will have all en route facilities staffed for a flight to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (IATA: AMS, ICAO: EHAM), where the Dutch vACC will provide a full staff to sequence arrivals and get them onto the ground. Bring your favorite long haul aircraft, your business jet, or whatever you want, and join us for 7+ hours of packed airspace and professional air traffic control.

As well, we'll have a detailed pilot briefing released within a couple weeks that will offer details on general procedures that will be useful along the route, as well as specific information on the booking system we'll be using for this event (more information to be released about this later).

This event is part 2 of 2. We previously hosted The Holland-America Line in which pilots flew from Amsterdam to Boston. These events serve as a fantastic time to brush up on both international and American procedures, and prepare for the bi-annual Cross the Pond. We hope you'll join us on December 15th for this event, and look forward to seeing many of you there!
