There are so many airports with commercial service in the United States, but pilots often focus on the large hubs, such as Denver, Dallas, Atlanta, or Chicago. On February 18 from 2300z to 0300z (6pm - 10pm ET), we're going to feature some of the airports around the US that have plenty of commercial service, but are often neglected. VATUSA is proud to partner with SimWorks Studios for this edition of Hidden Gateways. SimWorks Studios will be giving away two aircraft to pilots who fly into or out of an event field during the event duration, and one aircraft to a controller participating at an event field (or the overhead center) for more than two hours. Giveaway terms are below.

Featured Fields:
  • Charleston (CHS)
  • Corpus Christi (CRP)
  • Fresno (FAT)
  • Spokane (GEG)
  • Green Bay (GRB)
  • Indianapolis (IND)
  • Macon (MCN)
  • Norfolk (ORF)
  • Chicago/Rockford (RFD)
  • Fort Myers (RSW)
  • Santa Barbara (SBA)
  • Springfield (SGF)

Giveaway Terms and Conditions
There will be two airplanes created by SimWorks Studios given away to pilots who participate in the event. Participating in the event is defined as making a full stop landing or a takeoff at one or more airports listed as featured in this posting. Flying into more than one airport will not increase the amount of entries into the lottery, nor will it give a pilot a better chance to win. To win, the pilot must use their real name to connect while flying in the event so that the user can be located. Discord will be used to contact the winning pilot, and to claim the reward the pilot must supply SimWorks Studios with their email address associated with their FS2020/Microsoft account.
There will be one airplane created by SimWorks Studios given away to a controller who participates in the event. Participating in the event is defined by controlling at an event field for at least two hours on DEL, GND, TWR, APP, DEP, or by controlling at the overlying enroute facility (CTR). The controller must connect to the network with their real name to win so that the user can be located. Discord will be used to contact the winning controller, and to claim the reward the controller must supply SimWorks Studios with their email address associated with their FS2020/Microsoft account.
