[29 July 2018 1100-2100z] The Holland-America Line
« on: June 03, 2018, 11:32:04 pm »

Come join the Boston Virtual ARTCC and Dutch VACC for a long-haul, trans-Atlantic, inter-division jamboree! From 1100-1400z on Sunday, July 29th, we'll have Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (IATA: AMS, ICAO: EHAM) staffed to the gills to accommodate departures, and will have all en route facilities staffed for a flight to Boston Logan Airport (IATA: BOS, ICAO: KBOS), where the Boston Virtual ARTCC 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).

Lastly, we're excited to announce that this is just part 1 of 2. Later this year, we'll host the "go home" leg of this trip, the same facilities staffing Boston to Amsterdam. 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 the 29th for this event, and look forward to seeing many of you there!

On behalf of the Boston Virtual ARTCC and Dutch VACC, I'm extremely excited to announce that this event is now being sponsored by FlyTampa! The popular scenery developer will be giving away two copies of EACH Boston Logan and Amsterdam Schiphol Airports, so four sceneries in total! To win, all you need to do if book a flight using the event website, and fly with that route and callsign. Winners will be randomly selected and contacted by email a few days after the event. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 29th!
