    Appointment of new Director of Helsinki FIR [ACCSCA6]

    Hello everyone, We've now completed the handover of the position with @Julius Mannermaa and this is my official announcement of taking over the Helsinki FIR DIR role as of today. I would like to thank Julius for his dedication to the common good of the FIR and I'm excited to take over and see what the future holds. Feel free to reach out to me if you have anything at all in mind, like questions, ideas, etc. I'm best available on the VATSIM Scandinavia Discord server in the Finnish chat or private message and here on the forums. My availability will be quite limited for the next two weeks or so but after that you should see me in the VATSIM skies and on the scopes more often. 😄 Best regards, Joonatan Porkkala Director of Helsinki FIR
  8. Henning Oden and Erik Hockert are having on-line training at Landvetter, Monday evening. Give us some traffic, both IFR and VFR traffic is welcome! ESGG_GND, ESGG_TWR and ESGG_APP will be manned.

    Visby (ESSV) Fly-In

    until
    On Sunday 7 July from 16-20z we would like to welcome you to fly into the beautiful town of Visby located on the equally stunning island of Gotland. Starting at 30 June and ending on Sunday 7 July there is an event in Visby called "Almedalsveckan", which is a huge event and gathering where business people, politicians, organizations and general public meet up to discuss and debate about interesting issues and topics. Even if you aren't interested in politics, there is a lot of things to do anyway. You can explore the island of Gotland and see what it has to offer, or you can just go to the city center of Visby enjoying the nice restaurants and bars during the evening. Or if you are more into aviation, why not rent a Cessna from any of the local flying clubs which is spread out in middle and southern Sweden. It's a really good excursion to cross the Baltic Sea to Gotland in a single enginge piston aircraft. If you fancy something faster that carries more passenger, why not help out with the "Air Bridge" that is set-up during the whole week between Stockholm-Arlanda and Visby. There is a huge increase of traffic movements to get all the visitors to and from the island for "Almedalsveckan". In order to seperate departures and arrivals to and from Visby airport, which normally doesn't handle that much traffic, we will follow the route procedure (AIP Supplement) that is in effect in real life. Please use the following routes when flying between ESSA and ESSV. ESSA-ESSV: BABAP T316 GOTAL ESSV-ESSA: TOMBU DCT XILAN Charts | AIP Supplement

  23. Hello everyone! We've created a survey to collect some feedback about the homepage (not forums) of VATSIM Scandinavia. Your feedback will be used when planning to facelift a new homepage sometime in the future. The survey is anonymous and takes about 2-4 minutes to complete, you may skip certain questions if you wish. I hope everyone has a few minutes to help us out here. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Mentors, staff and board members are just as welcome to fill it out. Fill out the survey here!
  24. The Web department of VATSIM Scandinavia has some big projects ahead. To ease the workload and to get fresh eyes on every project I have appointed @Daniel Lange and @Henrik Sonstebo as interim Web Services Assistants. Their role is a pure assistant role to our Web Services Director @Mikael Harju I'm glad to welcome both Henrik and Daniel to the Web team and their position might also be a permanent one, if everything works out!

    [AMENDMENT OF CONSTITUTION] Proposal to members

    Yeah, I do agree that I could have been more detailed as to why this change is proposed, since it's one of the bigger things. I'll keep that in mind for the next issue!
  26. Daniel Edvardsson

    [AMENDMENT OF CONSTITUTION] Proposal to members

    Thank you @Martin Loxbo for providing the background information and analysis to why there is a need to change the rule. I do not agree that my comments and questions are harsh, only that the information given by the Director was not sufficient at all. I am happy you have sorted it out and I think the proposal now seems fair. And thank you @Martin Stockzell for you clarifications as well.
  27. Martin Stockzell

    [AMENDMENT OF CONSTITUTION] Proposal to members

    EDITED: Well Martin Loxbo already gave more or less my exact answer. However, to answer your direct question. Yes, the administration is one reason (and since it was the only one provided I understand that it counts as the main one). But the main reasons are given by Martin above. But again, we already have rules, that streches higher then our constitution, which states that controller must be well familiar with the procedures. So the paragraph itself could actually be deemed unnecessary. But as Adrian and Claus mentioned before, it's always good to have SOME local regulations that specifies a bit more detail. And to answer your question regarding our current situation. VATSIM Scandinavia has a pretty large amount of really inactive ATC (years) which mostly concists of people with early CID:s that has left the hobby all together or just otherwise occupied. The number of inactive ATC with fairly recent training are quite few. And many of them falls under the category that Martin mentions above, which takes unnecessary resources from the Training Department who I would like to prioritize new students over people who already have the skills, but due to a rule that got them inactive due to vacation (or whatever the cause may be) has to be "refreshed"
