[07FEB19 0100Z-0500z] Friday Night Flights FNO (ZOA/ZLA)
« on: January 16, 2020, 10:35:24 pm »


In world where, you are the captain… where frames are your enemy, weather dictates your flightpath and the flight levels are not the quiet oasis you once knew them to be.
Two, ARTCC’s stand together… united in their quest for the ultimate symphony of planes and controllers alike.
In their quest they will discover what it means to re-route an aircraft to its destination, and how ground delays will become their ultimate enemy.
Please join us, for the first time this decade, Oakland ARTCC and Los Angeles ARTCC combine their forces to tackle delays, intercept localizers and launch you off the 1s before an A380 lands on the 28s.
This momentous occasion is not one to miss, so be sure to book your calendars and have your preflight done.
 

The Nitty Gritty
Date: Friday, 7th FEB 2020
Time: Starting from 5pm PST (0100z) – Ending around 9pm PST (0500z)
Stars (Airfields) : SFO/LAX
Supporting Actors : SMF/BUR

Well, we are here - didnt that come fast? Hope everyone enjoys themselves. Be patient and enjoy the ride!

Our FNO's are usually busy, so always pays to plan a little extra fuel. Hour and half is a good number.

Just wanted to say thanks for a great FNO.  I even didn't mind the 32 minute wait to get into my gate or the 1:22 wait to get out of KLAX (much :) ).  Was a fun time, everyone did a great job.  Thanks for another great Friday night on VATSIM!

Oh the poor Alaska that got off at Lima took far too long to bring him in. Glad you had fun, all the controllers had a good time.
