    We had an excellent evening in Helsinki with a massive amount of traffic and Janne passed with flying colours, thanks to everyone who flew in!

    It's time to head to Helsinki again this Thursday the 4th of January at 18-21z (20-23lt) when it's time for Janne Louhi to try and get his S3 rating on Helsinki Radar. Every movement is crucial for a successful checkout, so we need your help; bring your favourite aircraft to Finland and fly in or out of Helsinki and make Janne sweat for his rating. There will be excellent coverage on Tampere Radar for enroute services all across Finland, and Helsinki aerodrome positions will be staffed as well, so this is the perfect chance to enjoy some quality ATC while helping out the candidate. Welcome to Helsinki!

  6. Time for yet another checkout in Finland! On Thursday the 14th of December at 18-21z (20-23 local), it's time for Daniel Edwards to take the hot seat on Helsinki Tower for a chance to prove the examiner he's got what it takes to become a fully qualified Tower controller. As always, we need your help to achieve this; all movements, be it IFR or VFR, are welcome and necessary for a successful checkout. The checkout is simultaneous with the weekly Helsinki in Sight event, so this is a final opportunity to do some Helsinki-Rovaniemi practice runs for Fly and See Santa next Saturday. Or why not take your favourite GA aircraft for a spin around Helsinki while enjoying the Finnish winter scenery? Everything's possible. Welcome to Helsinki!

    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ATCOs that I've used it with since the adoption rate of CPDLC seems to be extremely low, probably due to the slightly outdated and – perhaps for some – difficult client in the pilot's end.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!
