Events / [15 December 2018 1300-2300z] The Holland-America Line
« Last post by Krikor Hajian on August 17, 2018, 08:06:36 pm »

Come join the Boston Virtual ARTCC and Dutch VACC for a long-haul, trans-Atlantic, inter-division jamboree! From 1200-1500z on Saturday, December 15th, we'll have Boston Logan Airport (IATA: BOS, ICAO: KBOS) staffed to the gills to accommodate departures, and will have all en route facilities staffed for a flight to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (IATA: AMS, ICAO: EHAM), where the Dutch vACC will provide a full staff to sequence arrivals and get them onto the ground. Bring your favorite long haul aircraft, your business jet, or whatever you want, and join us for 7+ hours of packed airspace and professional air traffic control.

As well, we'll have a detailed pilot briefing released within a couple weeks that will offer details on general procedures that will be useful along the route, as well as specific information on the booking system we'll be using for this event (more information to be released about this later).

This event is part 2 of 2. We previously hosted The Holland-America Line in which pilots flew from Amsterdam to Boston. These events serve as a fantastic time to brush up on both international and American procedures, and prepare for the bi-annual Cross the Pond. We hope you'll join us on December 15th for this event, and look forward to seeing many of you there!

Happy Friday everyone!

I'm very excited to get started here to continue the tradition of excellence that this community has created for itself. As part of my continued familiarization with the community I would like to invite you all to a town hall meeting on Sunday, August 26th, 2018 at 1900 or 2300z in the BVA TeamSpeak.

In this meeting I intend to:

-Introduce myself to the community formally
-Give the community an idea of what my vision and philosophy is
-Answer any and all questions that you may have of myself and my staff
-Take suggestions from the community to incorporate moving forward

I know I have spoken with a few of you in the TeamSpeak already, but I am aware especially on the controller side there was a bit of drama and controversy surrounding the application process and my subsequent appointment to the position. I would like to indicate to the community that no question is off limits (within reason) and I am willing to be transparent with the community to the furthest extent of my knowledge.

In addition to this point I would also like to indicate that I intend to have an "open door" policy. Please feel free to come to me any time with any questions or concerns. My e-mail is [email protected], or feel free to reach out to me on any other platform.

I look forward to seeing you all on the 26th!

Join the controllers and frequent pilots of the Boston Virtual ARTCC for an evening in Connecticut. The focus is on the Y90 Bradley TRACON area, including KORH, KHFD, KCEF, and, of course, KBDL. We'll be staffing up the facility from 1900-2300 ET [2300-0300Z]. All types of traffic are welcome across the area and the entire ARTCC, be it your local flying club doing some VFR, your VA operating scheduled flights, or just a fun little jaunt in your Cessna from point A to point B, we'll be turning up the heat for our controllers and shooting for a busy Saturday night. We hope to see you there!
