[15 December 2018 1300-2300z] The Holland-America Line
« 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!
