  1. Transponder difference Sweden Finland

    Hello Janne! What I know, you are expected to squawk mode C also in Sweden, when initiating your pushback and further movements. At least in airports with ground radar (ESSA and ESGG). What I have heard in real life, there is the differens between Finnish and Swedish ATC, that Finnish ATC acknowledges readback rather often! Magnus

  4. Cross the Pond Eastbound 2017 application

    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

  9. Donations report from Director

    @Mathias Johnsen or @Peter Persson, is this an good solution? Maybe on top of "Upcoming events"? Magnus
  10. Donations report from Director

    Donations VATSIM Scandinavia services are not without costs. During the years we have relied on members to contribute by donation of money or members that are able to contribute with services, either services to enhance or maintain our services or with their expertise in areas of our services, or both. Without those donations we would not be able to exist, with that fact I like to express my gratitude towards those members as Director for this community. Beside services that are donated without cost, VATSIM Scandinavia have yearly actual cost currently for our forum services of 50 US Dollar and about 25 US Dollar every second year for our web adress´s. Attached are an edited report from my "VATSIM Scandinavia PayPal account" used to receive donations. The report is edited to, follow our donations rules, where VATSIM Scandinavia will never disclose members donations. On our website frontpage you are able as member see the general state of donations gathered per year. Magnus Director VATSIM Scandinavia donations 2015 2017.xlsx
  11. Teamspeak server is terrible every 10 mins

    That is not good. Before time becomes "ages" , do report to web team at web@vatsim-scandinavia.org and of course as you done now, so everyone knows that report regarding our services has been done. I have no knowledge of this problem, so web team will investigate it further. Magnus

  13. Major event in Copenhagen?

    In the latter parts of 2015 there was an discussion about this that ended in spring 2016. There was no support to create an official assistant position for each FIR to be "local event coordinator", as each FIR Director have different ways to work and own priorities. Neither I supported an official assistant position for each FIR. This issue on board table was brought to discussion by Copenhagen FIR Director, he was never denied to create his own "local event assistant" what I can read in our discussion and that assistant position has not been brought forward to me officially. As according to constitution, each staff position can have assistant if needed. Board did create an coordination calendar that was promoted to be used. During the discussion, there was an very positive thought that member/member group could/should cooperate with event department to create events, where the theme "more the merrier" was much supported. Event department should not be the owner of each event, but they do have an role to see that event´s do collide with other major event in our vACC. I hade the intention to create an SOP Event document together with event department, to give guidelines regarding how different events should be processed, but that are one of few of my tasks that I leave to next Director to handle if he think it´s an necessary document. So, official local event assistant for each FIR was not supported, but each staff can create own assistant. Each event that we can create is an absolute positive. Magnus
  14. Major event in Copenhagen?

    I support this, more the merrier! In my opinion, event department should not be the one to dictate how many events we have, if there are an group of members that can arrange an event then go for it! Event department are doing an good work distributing event "democratically" around our vACC, but if there is an member/group of members that like to arrange an event, that should generally be an big "YES". But event department expertise should be utilised regarding how to setup the event and an clear structure regarding time and responsibilities has to be in place, before launching the event! There can´t be an situation where event department are sitting with many tasks still to do in an event, where the member/member group are not doing what was agreed upon! That are my general thoughts regarding events and finally I advertise http://forum.vatsim-scandinavia.org/calendar/2-staff-event-cpt-planning-calendar/ to see that no event are colliding with other events/major checkouts!
