I noticed that Finland tried to have a VFR-event at Malmi, that didn't quite go so well.

Might I suggest a combined swedish/finnish mini-event with focus on VFR and other non-jets at EFMA. This island has a interesting history in regards to the both countries so we could maybe build on that.

Might even make it a "mini-shuttle" to/from ESSB or EFTU?

True, it's hard to know the weather earlier then a couple of days before.

Since Åland is known (for many swedes) as a place you visit during the summer, it could be a last farewell to the summer of 2015 :)

Oslo overload or something when the snow and/or bad weather sets in :D

Yeah!

Some kind of storm event would be fun. I know. Little bit crazy but it still would be fun.

Oslo overload with Low Visibility Procedures with 12 nm spacing on final and 2 min start-up intervals.... 9_9

Sounds like fun :D

Something in Norwegian fjords would be beautiful, especially in winter... Somewhere like Sandane!! Maybe a turboprop night, all the manual things and the Q400s come out to play?!

Oh, and I'm sure an ESGG Overload event would be awesome, just like VATSIM-UK's airport madness events they offer! ;)

Well, actually I'm in the planning stage for event for Norway in Dec, I think Tromso/Bodo sounds like fun ;)

Is that a part of the annual Fly and See Santa event?

 

I would suggest to have an event in the south at either Vigra, Kjevik or Sola. I remember we hosted Stavanger in Motion a couple of years ago which was a huge success. I know that some guys are working on Oslo Realtime at the moment. As we speak about Oslo, when was last time we did an Oslo Overload? :)

As Tromsø is a part of Fly and See Santa (isn't it?), I would suggest a Møre fly-in. Ålesund alone would be nice, of course, but there are no delivery or ground frequency there. Depending on the availability of controllers, we could include ENKB and ENML. If we don't have enough controllers we should host an event at ENAL only. That's my opinion though :)

As always, i vote for Tromsø and Bodø, since Molde have like 3(+) parking spots

As I said (Maybe I didn't make myself too clear): If we do a Molde event, I suggest we include Ålesund. We would focus on Ålesund at first, but if we have a lot of controllers available we could expand :)

But since we would get traffic to Molde, there's another problem. Molde is a an AFIS airport, and we always get people who don't know a sh*t about "Runway occupied". But Aalesund sounds cool ;)

That problem reflects real life, I've heard several Mediterranean charter pilots hesitantly reply "errrroger cleared to land" when told "runway free". As long as you're able to make the pilot understand wether he'll be landing on top of someone else or not, it should be fine. And I'll have you know we got at least 5 spots with adequate wingtip clearance for 737s/A320s! We're an important international aerodrome, damnit! xD

I did find this version of advertising text from 2009 when most probably @Hakan Schulz and I arranged this event!

Would I like to participate in this event again, absolutely :) !

Welcome to GÖTEBORG OVERLOAD 2009!  

VACCSCA warmly invites You to join a special Overload Event at
the second largest airport in Sweden. Göteborg-Landvetter (ESGG)
will be fully staffed including ground, tower, final, approach east and
west as well as center to provide the best possible service!

There is one runway at Landvetter and especially during this time of
the year the conditions could be really challenging with strong winds,
heavy snow and possibly limited visibility, since the airport is located
at the west coast of Sweden. Come and enjoy practicing Your skills
as pilot!

Despite the potential though weather conditions expect to meet a warm
and busy atmosphere with friendly professional controllers and a lot of
fellow pilots joining in at Göteborg-Landvetter (ESGG) at the evening
22th of February!

Why not fly a real life domestic, international or cargo flight for
Scandinavian, Lufthansa or KLM? Take a flight from one of the more
common destinations like Copenhagen, Arlanda or Gardemoen or a more
special City Airline flight to/from for example Tallin, Birmingham or Luleå?

For pilot information regarding Göteborg-Landvetter, please,
have a look at:

http://www.vaccsca.org/event

Crucial information for pilots!   

NEW SID/STARS IN OPERATION SINCE 15TH OF JANUARY

You can expect heavy traffic load in the vicinity of Göteborg and there
might be enroute as well as TMA holdings.

Please, prepare well and:
* study the charts under the pilot information link
* fly an aircraft you are familiar with
* program the published holdings in the FMC, if you don't need them
during the approach they could easily be deleted


There might be many pilots on the frequency. Please, listen carefully
to ATC instructions and make an effort to readback promtly and carry
out the action swiftly and correctly. This will make sure all pilots
gets smooth flights to and from Göteborg.

Mark the 22nd of February 17.00z - 22.00z in your calender and
fly Göteborg Overload the 2009 edition! Welcome!

Magnus

?? I would definitely enjoy that event! Btw, UK do a similar event iirc at Birmingham, about same size as Landvetter if not slightly larger, over two days, so on one day it'd be Realtime flights and the next day any flight.... But that would need a lot of dedicated staff. 

Regardless, I would definitely be interested... Never flown at Landvetter with full ATC and never seen _F_APP in use :-)
