    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!

    Helsinki is calling this Thursday the 7th of September at 17-20z (20-23lt) when Arttu Heinonen takes the hot seat on Helsinki Tower to prove the examiner he's got what it takes to earn his S2 rating and become a fully qualified Tower controller. We need your help – come and fly in and out of Helsinki to give Arttu some traffic to work with. IFR or VFR, anything that flies is very much welcome. You can expect excellent ATC coverage in Helsinki but also everywhere in Finland with Tampere Radar providing enroute services to those departing, arriving or transiting Finnish airspace. Welcome to Helsinki!

    It's checkout time in Finland! On Thursday the 3rd of August at 17-20z (20-23 local) it's time for James Burgess to take the stage on Helsinki Tower to prove the examiner he's capable of handling a Tower position on his own and earn his S2 ATC rating. We need your help to achieve this - all traffic, IFR or VFR, is welcome to fly in and out of Helsinki and give James some challenge during his checkout. Why not take your favourite GA aircraft for a spin, or perhaps fly something heavier to Europe or beyond; everything's possible with great ATC coverage both in Helsinki and enroute. Welcome to Finland!

  15. [29 & 30 JULY 2017] VATSIM CONNEXION 2017

    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 .
