    I've used the DCL functionality on the strip a few times now and it works like a charm. I've only given 100% standard clearances with it so don't know if AHDG deps/modified runway works. But yeah, it's mainly other Finnish ATCOs that I've used it with since the adoption rate of CPDLC seems to be extremely low, probably due to the slightly outdated and – perhaps for some – difficult client in the pilot's end. Whenever I'm in charge of clearances I do advertise the availability of DCL in my infoline, hopefully that'll attract some new pilots to start using the system when they see that it's being used at least somewhere.

    The checkout streak is real in Finland – it's time for the third checkout week in a row! This Thursday the 21st of September at 17-20z (20-23lt) Christian Kovanen takes the hot seat on Helsinki Tower to prove his controlling skills to the examiner and earn his long-awaited S2 rating. As usual, we need your help to achieve this; all traffic, be it IFR or VFR, is very much welcome and needed for a successful checkout evening in Finland. You can expect excellent ATC coverage both in Helsinki and in all of Finland with Tampere Radar providing enroute services for those flying domestic or futher afield. Come fly and enjoy busy frequencies and a multitude of TCAS targets before the weekend, all the while helping out our candidate. Welcome to Helsinki!

    Thursday means checkout day; it's time for another CPT in Finland! On Thursday the 14th of September at 17-20z (20-23lt) it's Matias Kivikoura's turn to try and get his S2 rating on Helsinki Tower. To achieve that we need traffic; you're welcome to fly in and out of Helsinki with any of your aircraft, no matter IFR or VFR, and put Matias to his limits. We'll also have excellent ATC coverage, naturally in Helsinki but also in all of Finland, so it's the perfect time to enjoy some quality ATC and busy frequencies before the weekend. Welcome to Helsinki!
