ZNY Live Event Summer 2019 Information
« on: May 06, 2019, 03:09:18 pm »
For all non-ZNY members, here is information regarding attendance to ZNY's Live Event. All ATC personnel are welcome to attend (pilots may as well, if they wish to see the behind-the-scenes of how we run the ATC operations in New York). Please read carefully and respond only if you can confirm your attendance or have a question (this is the exact same information supplied to ZNY members):

The Summer 2019 Live Event will be held on Saturday, 1 June 2019 starting at 11:00am (subject to change). The location is Chateau of Spain at 11 Franklin St, Newark, NJ 07102.

The plan is to do real-ops to simulate real-world flights.

The cost is $55 and covers the event cost and lunch (note: optional dinner is at own expense), payable here. If you have trouble paying the amount or have other issues, please email me events@nyartcc.org! Payment is due as soon as possible.

A more detailed posting is to come but for now, if you can already confirm you will be there, please respond with your initials (OI), where you are coming from, and if you will need help with transportation/housing accommodations. I'll start:

HP, Baltimore/Washington area, I have 2 seats available in my car

This summer's live event is different from last year's because we will be controlling for a much shorter period (6 hours) than last (12+ hours over 2 days). Nevertheless, we will be incorporating many of the same features as last year as well as a few new ones.

Here is a schedule of events day-of:
1500Z - 1550Z (11:00am - 11:50am) Controller arrival. Note: please make it a priority to arrive at the venue during this period.
1550Z - 1614Z (11:50am - 12:14pm) ZNY briefing.
1615Z (12:15pm) NY Metro Hotline activation.
1615Z - 1629Z (12:15pm - 12:29pm) Regional telcon (audio link) (webinar link).
1630Z - 1830Z (12:30pm - 2:30pm) Shift 1 controlling.
1815Z (2:15pm) Operations planning telcon. (if needed)
1830Z - 2030Z (2:30pm - 4:30pm) Shift 2 controlling.
2015Z (4:15pm) Operations planning telcon. (if needed)
2030Z - 2230Z (4:30pm - 6:30pm) Shift 3 controlling.
2230Z - 2300Z (6:30pm - 7:00pm) Controller breakdown.
2300z (7:00pm) Optional dinner.

What to bring:
Controlling equipment
ID Badge and/or position card from last year if you have it (note: I will not be making new ones for this event; expect updated ones the next live event)
Projectorx
Bluetooth speakerx

xOnly one person needs to bring a projector and speaker. Please respond with your OI if you plan on bringing one.

Planned setup
Newark, Kennedy, LaGuardia, and Philly will be separated into their respective areas. Liberty and ZNY will be consolidated. TMU will be situated in the middle if possible. If there is not enough space to accommodate this setup, then Kennedy and LaGuardia will combine.

Venue Info
The restaurant is the Chateau of Spain at 11 Franklin St, Newark, NJ 07102 with cross streets of Broad St and Federal Sq. There is some street parking but your safest bet would be to SpotHero (or whatever other application you use for parking) it or find a nearby lot on your own. Much of the available lots are near the Prudential Center (2 blocks) and Penn Station (about 8 blocks).

Flying In
It's been mentioned in the other forum post but Class D/untowered fields are available in and around NYC, the Island (coordinate with a LI attendee), Philly (coordinate with a DC Metro or Philly area attendee), and the DC Metro (I have 2 seats available) including N07 (Lincoln Park), LDJ (Linden), FRG ($$$) (Farmingdale/Republic), TEB (Teterboro), LOM (Wings Field), 39N (Princeton), N87 (Trenton-Robbinsville) and many more. Consult your normal services for up-to-date fees, etc.

Any questions and comments, please respond here or email me at events@nyartcc.org. Please respond to the other post if you are attending and have not responded on that forum already.
