Hello everybody. I've come here today to inquire about the interest for doing a VFR General Aviation fly in in Iceland. And I'd like to hear opinions from everyone, both ATC and Pilots I think it would be great fun to host a fly-in somewhere in Iceland. Not necessarily in the bigger airports, such as BIKF and BIRK (although BIRK would be fine) but I think airports like BIAR, BIIS, BISF, BIEG and BIVM would be more suitable. Personally I would be highly interested in doing it in BIIS, as it has such challenging approaches to offer. I'm quite new here on Vatsim, only joined in the end of March but I've already attended two events hosted by Vatsim Scandinavia which I enjoyed immensely. I attended both the BIKF fly in and the ESSA Realtime and they were great fun. Just yesterday I went to a real world fly in in BISF. I flew in with my uncle on his plane and I started thinking what fun it would be to do this on Vatsim, especially if the attendance was good It is my impression that doing events such as this is rare and almost unheard of, as I regularly check for events on Vatsim and in my short time here I've never seen an event such as this. I might be wrong though so I apologise in advance. Doing big international commercial aviation events is great fun of course and I fully understand that the vast majority of pilots on Vatsim fly big jets to international destinations. I can't however help thinking that some variety wouldn't hurt and that doing events such as this might even spark more interest in general aviation. I love flying the big jets as much as everyone but I'm also highly interested in general aviation. I think in terms of controllers, Tower would probably be enough for the airport itself but the more the merrier of course. Reykjavík Centre is a must have as most people would be flying to and from different Icelandic airports. Obviously, I'm not a controller or a member of importance on this forum so I have little to offer. I do however, if required, offer my help to plan the event and of course to rally pilots from the Icelandic community to it. I'm highly interested to hear what you guys think about this ____________________________________________________ With thanks. Sigfús Jónsson TF-SEX BISR
