FNOverly Cooked Turkey
« on: September 25, 2017, 01:16:28 PM »
Ever messed up that Thanksgiving turkey? Why not have a practice run a week early and break out your favorite aircraft while it's in the oven. Join ZKC for a fun night of operations at St. Louis (KSTL). A pilot briefing is available here.

FNOverly Cooked Turkey is tomorrow night. A few reminders to consider prior to flying this event:

Please look over the pilot briefing provided above.
Have updated scenery that includes Runway 11/29. This can just be an AFCAD. Having this runway will allow us to double our arrival rates into the airport. Please indicate if you have updated scenery in your remarks, and if you would like, on initial contact indicate that you have 11. (Arrivals from the south only)
PDC's will be issued to all CPDLC capable aircraft. If you do not receive a PDC, or are not CPDLC capable, please call delivery for your voice clearance. (You will most likely need an amended route if you're CPDLC capable and you didn't get a PDC)
It is VERY important that on initial contact with the first approach controller and ground controller that you have the current ATIS info.
ZKC looks forward to seeing you tomorrow night!

I love the name too!  Quick question, though, can you confirm that this FNO is only scheduled from 6:45pm - 10:45pm EST?  Based on historical stats, that would be leaving roughly 26% of the pilots in the dark with no ATC based on such an early end time.  Thanks for checking into it.

Yes the time is correct. However, we usually stay on quite longer than the actual end time to accommodate the additional arrivals.
