VATVENTURE: 07/27/20 2100-0000Z
« on: July 02, 2020, 10:12:11 pm »

While airventure may be cancelled this year, VATVENTURE will happen! Featuring KOSH. All pilots are requested to please read the NOTAM. We are currently working on getting a working P3d/FSX scenery link for those that do not have an AirVenture scenery for OSH. Check back soon for this link!

Assuming those times (1900-2200) are local (i.e. US Central Daylight)?
Cheers,

Okay, sorry, I'm still confused.  We're doing this at 3pm EDT on a Tuesday?

And the date in the "linked event" doesn't match, by the way.
Cheers,

Event times updated. Event is set for Monday July 27th, 2100-0000Z. Sorry for the confusion, and date mistake. Times adjusted to be later in the day, but still to allow for daylight. Hope to see you all there!

Any special procedures or NOTAMs?  Or being treated as a "normal" Class D towered field during the event?

Both days of the event will operate under special flight procedures close to the real world NOTAM and AirVenture procedures, but with a few exceptions for "vatsimisms." A NOTAM should be out later today, or this weekend at the latest, I will post it here, please read it when you can!

Wow, you guys did a FANTASTIC job recreating the atmosphere there.  This was my first time flying it on VATSIM and it was a blast.  And hey -- there's a published taxi route for coming off of 36R; who knew?!  LOL.  It's okay; I'll know for next time, haha.  I definitely won't miss it again!

EDIT: see the video here, if you like: https://youtu.be/zk7iKczQ5lU

Can this scenery

MEGASCENERYEARTH - WISCONSIN V3 FSX P3D

be used with the OSH scenery you are providing?

Would add or detract from the experience?

Thank you for the excellent event.

just want to say that this event was very cool.  I'd love to see it expanded to maybe be the weekend before Airventure, and more during the day on Saturday and Sunday.  Also, It'd be nice if VATSIM promoted the heck out of it like CTP.  The event was very fun, but could have been exceptional if more pilots knew about it, and flew in.  I think I only followed one aircraft in trail, both days combined.  I'll be looking for this event next year for sure.

I originally speculated that it was done on weekday afternoons as a means of controlling demand, with more people at home during these strange times, to prevent the event from getting out of hand.  But I later got wind that it was scheduled around PilotEdge's version of the event, as a courtesy.  Not sure which is true, or both or either.  But I agree that it was a blast and I'll be looking for news of this event every July from here on!
