    Just have to come here and congratulate you all on the event. I've been unable to join the event since I joined VATSIM so this was the first event for and I can just say WOW. What a night. Re-routings, airspace closed, holds I think I had 5 planes circling beneath me at one point. Really really well done. A couple of close calls with break break climb now. Sadly I also heard a lot of people whine over the holds on the radio, for me all of them were expected as a single runway airport can only handle so much traffic. Once again, thank you so so much for organizing something of this scale in the Nordics and getting such an amount of controllers to spend their free time to handle the traffic. Pat yourselves on the back, this was amazing. Merry Christmas and I'll talk to you in the skies again!

    @Kristian Kling has been appointed by unanimous decision by VATSIM Scandinavia board. Kristian was the only applicant for the position. During an transition Arvid Hansson and Kristian will share duties and will internally decide tasks, this to have as smooth transition as possible. Also there need to be some time for Kristian to ge credentials to platforms needed to perform his duties. With this announcement I also thank @Arvid Hansson for his work during his time in office.

    The NEFRA project is taking another step forward allowing flights to take cross border directs between the different blocks when flights are cruising above FL285. Therefore in future flights can plan direct from Finland-Russia Border Straight to Denmark-UK border as long as the flight path stays inside the NEFRA area and the flight is flying above FL285. Flights below FL285 has to follow the rules of different blocks still and file a waypoint between the block borders. This is going to be implemented on 25.5.2017 and I recon should be used also on VATSIM. On controller side most noticeable change will be longer directs and "ghost" COPX points because there is no more waypoint filed for example between Sweden and Finland on flights using the FRA. Local rules do still apply with departure and exit points etc. So for example from Helsinki, you have to follow the departure procedure to the FRA entry point before you can take a direct. Most problems as a controller will probably raise when checking the validity of flight plan. It's good the have general idea for example of the main Scandinavian airport FRA entry and exit points. Especially for your own country but preferably for other big airports as well, so you can give better service helping pilots with flight planning. Maybe we could also make up some kind of controller FRA guide which would have all the procedures needed for quick access to check if the waypoints and procedures the pilot has filed are valid. Other than that FRA should not be that big of a problem to control because the traffic levels on Vatsim are rather low. During events it might be good to remind pilots to use the ATS system though as it eases the controller workload. Here are now some links with great information any controller can have a look if they are interested. I really recommend you to have at least a quick look on these Free route Airspace in general (by eurocontrol) http://www.eurocontrol.int/articles/free-route-airspace AIP Finland AIP AIC A 6 / 2017 https://www.ais.fi/ais/aica/A/A2017/EF_CIRC_A_2017_006_en.pdf (Free route airspace operations between NEFAB FRA and DK-SE FRA from 25 MAY 2017, document can be also found from your local AIC A section in either English, local language or both.)

    Hi all, As the title might have led you to believe, I am writing to let you all know that after some careful consideration I have sent Magnus my letter of resignation and intend to step down from the Training Director position. Lately I've found it increasingly difficult to find the motivation needed to give the role the time and attention it deserves. There are a few reasons behind this, the main one being that I've found the combination of VACCSCA's shape and size, and VATEUD and all that it brings incredibly unrewarding to work with. I don't feel it's necessary to go into more detail in this message, but I think it's right that at least some light be shone upon the real reason behind my departure. For the organisation to function well, It's fundamentally important that the person in the TD seat does not see the situation from the point of view I do. I therefore strongly believe it's best for VATSIM Scandinavia that some fresh blood is brought into the Training Director's office. I want to emphasise that the views and opinions behind this decision are completely my personal thoughts. VATSIM Scandinavia has a good relationship with VATEUD and I've never had any issues working with their guys, it simply isn't right for me. Finally, I want to say that it's been great working with you in Scandinavia again. Despite the fact that my stint as TD ended up being shorter and less productive than I wanted it to be I have had a great time being here and I feel that I'm handing the department over in a good state. That is, however, far from solely my achievement. I'd like to thank the TAs I've worked with for the time they've spent working for the department, they truly are fundamental pieces of the organisation and there's no doubt the Training Department wouldn't function without them. Magnus will start the application process for my successor in the upcoming days, I shall continue with the TD duties until one has been appointed. Take care, I'll see you all around.

    IRL there are slot times and minimum staffing levels, so you would never see a situation like this. We don't have the ability to stop aircraft coming into our airspace, unless there is full ATC coverage for the whole route, then you could theoretically ask the previous sector to hold traffic all the way down to the departure TWR. From my point of view the two major challenges were: 1. We had the bare minimum amount of controllers to pull this off at all. We had to choose between staffing up the TMA to ensure there was a final director available, or put extra resources on the ACC level to be able to manage the holding. You see the dilemma? No DIR = even more holding. 2. I tried very hard to make sure that the first aircraft entering the hold would also be the first aircraft to leave the hold. We do not really have a fair way of dealing with this across the different TMA entry points though. We only have the capacity to work out the sequence for each holding point, at least when it's this busy. I think I did a reasonable job with this, until several pilots started coming into my sector descending without clearance. This means that they are heading straight for the hold and instead of applying the "first in the hold is at the lowest level" principle, I just had to find available levels for these aircraft. Now I would really like to "punish" these offenders, but instead I have to descend them in the hold just to keep levels in the hold free, and send them off to APP. There's simply no spare capacity to handle it in a different way. I also have a general observation that the number of text pilots is increasing, and even worse the amount of pilots who don't know the basic protocols of VATSIM communication, which is: Choose one mode of communication! There are three to choose from for pilots: Text only, Voice receive, and full Voice. Don't mix! There is no "text receive, talk on voice" (this totally screws up the voice comms for the controller, as the pilot will suddenly start talking, without hearing other transmissions). There is no "I'll use voice when I feel like it and text when I feel like it" or "I'll use voice but immediately ask on text or ask the controller to use text if I don't understand". All these "mix modes" of communication can increase controller workload tremendously, as you don't know where to find the pilot, text or voice? Does he hear me or not? Is he not replying on voice because he didn't hear, or because he suddenly decided to reply via text, so I'm waiting for him to type a short story in the chat box? Finally, file your mode of communication in the flight plan! (/T/ or /R/ or /V/ in the remarks section, or select the correct mode in the pilot client) We see a big yellow "t" to indicate text pilots. If it turns out a /V/ pilot is using text, again it gets very confusing. We all know text comms is a fact of VATSIM life, but if you are not a nervous newbie, or have hearing problems, in my opinion it's simply rude to use text only online. Don't have a decent mic? Use voice receive! (I had one "receive" pilot who was so quick replying on text that he sent his readback before I had even stopped talking! ) Don't want to wake up the kids/wife/husband/parents/dog/cat/goldfish? Get a headset for 20 bucks! Have another excuse like, "I don't want to use voice because I'm Skyping at the same time." Get outta here! (And I mean that literally! Either pay attention or log off. Period.) So @Per Kristian Jensen, it's easy to criticize ATC for not being perfect, but if all the pilots could just follow basic guidelines such as NOT descending without clearance, using text or voice as appropriate, and actually monitoring the frequency to be ready to act on instructions when given by ATC, this event would have gone MUCH more smoothly. Those are my two cents!

    10 December from 17-23z it's time to visit Santa Claus again, as usual Vatsim-Scandinavia will staff Rovaniemi (EFRO), Luleå (ESPA) and Tromsø (ENTC) throughout the evening. Since this event attracts a fair amount of pilots we highly recommend to bring a lot of holding fuel. And it doesn't hurt to bring your favorite bevarage and candy onboard since it will most likely be a long night for you. Visit our Santa web for pilot briefing, charts and scenery suggestion to make your visit to the north as enjoyable as possible. Vatsim-Scandinavia hope you will enjoy this year's Fly and See Santa. Santa web Merry Christmas!

    Hi all, I would just like to inform that I have applied for Oslo-Gardermoen for Cross The Pond Eastbound 2017. This will be the only application for airfields within VATSIM-Scandinavia since we have better chance to get chosen if we focus on one airfield during the voting process.

    Thank you Magnus, and thank you members of the Board for your confidence. Lately I have put a lot of energy into the the training organisation in Sweden as a Training Assistant and as a Mentor. I find it highly rewarding to be a part of the training of new ATC members and therefore I am now delighted to get this opportunity to share my enthusiasm with all of Vatsim Scandinavia. I believe that the mentors are the engine of the training department and the quality of most services across the whole vACC resides with them. I will make it my mission during my term in office to make the mentor's work as streamlined and enjoyable as possible! As for this moment I remain Training Assistant Sweden, but I am happy to announce that my successor will be made official within the next few days. Finally I would like to thank @Arvid Hansson for his service as Training Director and I hope that his expertise and commitment will remain within Vatsim Scandinavia in the future. Kristian Kling

    Having 4 Finnish controllers on the top 10 list seems amazing from FIR director point of view. Thanks a lot to all Finnish controllers in 2016 for helping to get Finland more and more active. Still remember when I started and Finland was opensky and did not have that many controllers. Those times are now behind and we can look into brighter future! Also thanks to everyone else contributing their free time on controlling on Vatsim Scandinavia positions last year. Lets try to make 2017 even more active in each country!

    First day of the convention is now done; here are some pictures as promised. Registration began at 9 o'clock in the morning. The convention location is Holborn Bars, an old Victorian building in Central London and it certainly is an amazing location for an event like this. The main room for the convention with people settling in for the day Welcome kits were handed out, with things like the two days' schedule, name tags and discount codes for the upcoming Aerosoft A330 and CRJ, as well as a JustFlight coupon. Ben Hunwicks giving a part of the welcome speech to the attendees The actual program began with Heathrow ATCO Michael Benson giving us an insight into the operation required to fit as many aircraft in and out of EGLL as has to be done every single day and the challenges related to it. In the picture he's explaining TBS, time based separation that is now used for arrivals to boost the overall arrivals rate. The swift pilot client team gave an update on the progress of the development. Also caused some "heated discussion" on things like the purpose of the project, development speed and features . The Simfest team giving a humour-filled presentation about their 747 simulator, the process of building it and World Flight. One of today's panel discussions, this one regarding creating innovative and novel VATSIM events. @Martin Tornberg as one of the panelists. The conference will continue tomorrow, so some more photos to be expected then .

    As of today, version 1.1.2 is the current public release for the Ground Radar plugin. Anyone using version 1.1 or newer should see an update message box when starting EuroScope. The main changes of version 1.1.1 from version 1.1 are: Unique settings for each opened radar screen Possibility to have airport-specific settings pre-defined Stand assignment only possible for assumed and untracked aircraft More options for the APP Window (view rotation, prediction lines, history dots, etc.) Raw primary radar data display Possibility to hide the ground mode track label to simulate a very basic system Version 1.1.2 has just some minor fixes to 1.1.1 As this is the first time the update check feature introduced in version 1.1 is used, here's a short description about it: The update can be either: Recommended: In this case there's no deadline and the user's current version can still be used without any restrictions. Mandatory with a deadline: In this case the message box will show the deadline if it hasn't passed yet. The current version can be used until then, but it's still recommended to update without delay. Mandatory: The current version can not be used and (nearly) all plugin features will be blocked until it is updated. The same happens if a "mandatory with deadline" update is not done before the deadline. Currently the update is just recommended so any previous version can still be used, but it will at some point become mandatory to have only one "official" version around. Easier for controller training and technical support. The current version should eventually make its way to the sector file packages, but until that happens, the updated files are available at the URL specified in the update message box. The update package contains the plugin's current manual set, the plugin itself and those plugin data files that can be used globally. The update procedure is rather simple: Download the update package Copy the included plugin (dll) and data files (txt) to your plugin directory, overwriting the existing files. DO NOT delete any files.

    Hi All, I'm happy to announce that Mathias Johnsen will be joining the Training Department as the Deputy Training Assistant Norway. This position is similar to what the TA ENGM role used to be, but Mathias will be helping Håvard manage training throughout Norway. Mathias is currently a web services administrator, and having held several staff positions (including Director) in the past he should be a familiar face to most of the community. Training in Norway is already running at an incredible pace and I have no doubts efficiency will increase even further with Mathias joining the team! The training-norway@ e-mail alias is shared between Håvard and Mathias and all enquiries regarding training in Norway shall continue to be sent to that address. Thanks for stepping up, Mathias!

    Starting at 4 November 09:00z, Arlanda together with Sweden Control will be online for 36 hours in this rare marathon event. This is an excellent opportunity for you to fly in and out of Stockholm-Arlanda regardless of what time zone you live in. Fly some local domestic hops with Norwegian or visit Arlanda with your favorite cargo aircraft, hauling cargo throughout the night. Or why not depart Arlanda in the morning on Saturday, visiting the Big Apple and head back arriving Sunday morning with ATC still being online! No matter what you decide to fly during this event, you will have excellent ATC coverage for 36 hours. We recommend you visiting the pilot briefing page and have your charts with you in the cockpit. The Swedish ATC team hope you will enjoy this event, see you online! Briefing and Sceneries | Charts

    NAX - NORSHUTTLE callsign is used when the flight is operated by Norwegian Air Norway. That is when the flight is based in Norway, Sweden or Denmark IBK - NORTRANS callsign is used when the flight is operated by Norwegian Air International. That is when the flight is based anywhere else than Norway, Sweden or Denmark By based I mean where the rotation starts and crew is based. For example NAX1302 and NAX1303 is a rotation from ENGM to EGKK and back to ENGM While IBK2801 is rotation from EGKK to ENGM and back to EGKK. Notice the difference that NAX flight starts from ENGM and IBK flight starts from EGKK. / Jouka

    Monday June 5th between 17.00-19.00Z @Alexander Fyhn is up for his S2 checkout at his home airport of Malmö Airport (ESMS) which by the locals goes by the name of "Sturup". Sturup is Swedens fourth largest airport, that has seen a drastically lowered passenger amount since the opening of Kastrup (EKCH) just 50km away. Still, it regulary sees traffic from SAS, Norwegian, BRA and Wizz Air and roughly 15 more, with around 2 million passengers per year. Come fly IFR or VFR, and expect surrounding ATC to be online to help out as well! Charts and pilot briefs as always available at the website: http://vatsim-scandinavia.org/pilots/airports/sweden/esms-malmo/ SPECIAL NOTE: Since Alexander has choosen ESMS for his checkout this is somewhat of an historic event. Most of the S2 checkouts takes place at ESGG due to it beeing the second largest airport. So I really encourage you all to come and fly. There are good freeware sceneries out there! Vatsim Scandinavia and Sweden FIR wishes everyone welcome! Examinator: Magnus Gustafsson

    This is indeed a great tool, well done! I was wondering about a small thing though. With so many position bookable, would it be an idea to first have a drop down menu to select FIR first, so you don't have to scroll through endless positions first? It is fine on a PC where you can just type the position, but from mobile devices it takes some time to find the position.

    VATSIM-Scandinavia and VATCAN would like to welcome all pilots to something different, an Arctic Shuttle from BIKF to CYYC. Take your favorite aircraft for an exciting flight across the beautiful and vast nature in the north on Saturday 6 May. Icelandic controllers will be online from 17z to facilitate departures out from Keflavik (BIKF). Then the pilots will enjoy enroute coverage from Iceland all the way to Calgary where the Canadian controllers will greet you upon arrival. To make your crossing from Iceland to Canada as enjoyable as possible we highly recommend to visit our prilot briefing which covers everything from Oceanic clearances to arrival procedures in Calgary. Briefing: BIKF, CYYC Route suggestion: BIKF-CYYC: SORIR DCT 66N030W 67N040W 68N050W 68N060W DCT CANEL NCAC YMM J517 CACHO Q882 DUDNI BIRKO3 BIKF-CYYC: RALOV DCT 65N030W 66N040W 67N050W DCT DARUB NCAD 090D DCT 60N100W DCT YKJ DCT YWV DCT PIKLA BIRKO3 Note: Due to adverse winds and weather the routes mentioned above is not necessarily the most fuel efficient.

    The checkouts continue in Helsinki when it's Lauri Liimatainen's turn to take the stage on Helsinki Tower on the 1st of December at 18-21z (20-23lt) and prove that he's got the skills to become a fully qualified tower controller. To do so he needs your help – any traffic, no matter IFR or VFR is welcome and much needed to help Lauri with his checkout. You can also expect excellent ATC coverage around Lauri thanks to the Helsinki in Sight event that occurs simultaneously with the checkout, so it's the perfect time for some flying – some sightseeing around Helsinki with your Cessna or perhaps something bigger, it's all possible.

    I hope you guys will accept my humble appologises. I have not been aware of any agreement on this matter, and I have not been able to find it written down anywhere. What I have done wrong here, is that I have stepped in to event departments area of responsibility. The least thing, I could have done, was to inform Martin immedeately after my application. Let's see how this turns out, and based on these circumstances, In a situation where only Copenhagen or none of the airports are chosen, I think ENGM should be number one priority for 2018 westbound.

    Looking back in the forum (where I do not have access anymore) there should be obvious that in cases of major events, our Event department should inform/bee informed from the first thought of the event. The coordination process regarding events was one of the long lasting task for me during my time as Director, where I was working on an SOP Event document but that was left on draft-level. Still, unless things have changed there should be an forum thread in staff forum regarding the major things, for example "Planning Calendar", where I see that there is no post regarding the planing of the CPT! This situation is not the ultimate one. Magnus

    On the 6th of August 14-20Z, VATSIM Scandinavia and Finnish controllers would like to invite and welcome pilots to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Finland by flying in Finland. In this event we will invite you to fly from four different airports: Helsinki-Vantaa (EFHK), Oulu (EFOU), Rovaniemi (EFRO) and Tampere-Pirkkala (EFTP). This gives you the possibility to experience Finland like never before as we staff these four airports. And of course, Tampere Radar will be staffed to give ATC services across Finnish airspace. Before flying, we recommend that you would take a look at the airport briefings on the website of VATSIM-Scandinavia. And of course, remember to take your charts on board as well. Thanks in advance for celebrating this special occasion by taking your bird up to the Finnish skies!

    One of our dear friend and fellow virtual aviator Thomas Polden have sadly passed away and is now forever at cruise up in the blue sky, mile high. He was an enthusiastic and friendly virtual pilot on the VATSIM network and will truly be missed. In order to remember and honor our fellow aviator and friend we would like to invite everyone for one last day of flying on Thomas’ favorite city pair and ending at his home airport at 5 Feb. The plan is to depart out of Heathrow (EGLL) and fly to Oslo-Gardermoen (ENGM) which was one of his favorite routes. And after that we are heading for one last leg back to his home airport Evenes (ENEV). Recommended departure time from EGLL is 14 to 15z and landing at ENEV later that evening around 20 to 21z. Scenery | Charts We hope to see you online on 5 Feb. Rest in peace Thomas Polden.
