Can we manage an RTE together at the same time (i.e OSL, ARN, CPH, HEL)? Would be very interesting traffic patterns through the ACC sectors if we can pull it off. Enough pilots to make it interesting?

This is in the early planning stage and is dependent on the booking page functionality. If everything goes as planned this will happen this Autumn.

This kind of event series will most likely start off in August, more information coming within the next week or so.

How about a Monthly Scandinavian Capital Airport Shuttle event ?

For example

  • January: EFHK <-> ESSA
  • February: ESSA <-> EKCH
  • March: EKCH <-> ENGM
  • April: ENGM <-> BIKF
  • May: BIKF <-> EFHK

 

Sounds great - looking forward to events with major airports! :D

Had a talk with @Mikkel Lindgren a while back concerning a rather odd little event, which could be fun none the less.

An Oil triangle event, which is the northsea oil triangle between Stavanger, Aberdeen and Esbjerg. Would be a nice opportunity to get the smaller airfields in play, especially since all three supports some sort of add-on scenery.

Excellent idea, I have sent an e-mail to the UK guys to see if they're interested in it.

I just looked on VatSpy, and noticed, that EHAM-KBOS shuttle is gathering a lot of pilots. I thought, why haven't we arranged similar Atlantic crossing between one of our hubs, and another on the another side of the Atlantic, for example in Canada(this would make it easier to arrange enroute staffing, as the route would cross the Atlantic via our own airspace).

EHAM-KBOS is one of the good examples how good success the long-haul events ends up with. 

Maybe I and Martin should have a look and see if we can manage to make a simular event :)

This event is agreed with the UK to happen on 6 October from 17-20z. If this collide with CTP it's easy to move this forward a week or two. Advertising will be published as we get a bit closer.

The "mega" Real Time Event featuring EFHK, EKCH, ENGM and ESSA was intially planned for September or so. Due technicality this will initally be postponed to October, November or beginning of December. The goal is to make this event happen before the end of this year.

There will be a release event together with Orbx within the next few weeks at ESSV, ESNQ and ESSD. We are just finalizing the details with them.

With the release of Vidan Design Aalborg, would it be an idea to have a release event as well for Aalborg? 😁

I’m happy to say that the planning has already started! 🙂 Hopefully we will announce it within a couple of weeks

Just my five cents, but it would be fun as a non-normal event I think! 😅

Simulating radar outage, procedural enroute control in a special defined area, (Like in Kiruna, but on ACC level, and bigger)

Of course it would require some preparation, but probably worth it in the end.. ;)

I personally would LOVE to see some more real time events, especially going into 2019. I take inspiration from "the other network" (which I can't bring myself to name) who had their "Stockholm Real Flight Operations" event - with slot bookings/restrictions/real-time flights at all airports in Stockholm airspace (ESSA/SB/KN/OW) which was attractive to many Pilots and VAs alike.

With Exercise Trident Juncture taking place in Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish air space, would an event inviting VSOAs be of any interest to anybody? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exercise_Trident_Juncture_2018

 

 Genuine shame that there are no Scandinavian VSOAs operating.

Pretty simple yet very fun and probably also a very popular idea."Vatsim Scandinavia Online Day" So all 5 capitals fully staffed at once.
