Repetitive Event: every Tuesday

ZURI-NIGHT-fly-utc+2.jpg

Welcome to the Zurich Night, the weekly onlineday of Switzerlands major airport! Every Tuesday from 1730z to 2030z, expect full staffing, professional and friendly ATC service and plenty of traffic.

Enjoy one of total 4 IFR approaches or get yourself a spot as a small VFR aircraft between the big birds. VFR flights are still performed regularly despite the airport's size. This makes flying VFR to/from Zurich extremely interesting, but it's also a huge challenge which requires careful preparation. A lot of small airfields in the vicinity offer numerous possibilities for short VFR hops.

Zurich is a unique airport with a lot of operational restrictions due to noise abatement and its challenging layout. We know it by heart and love this airport with all its rough edges and we are sure you're gonna love it as well!

Join our frequencies every Tuesday evening and enjoy!

LSGG-1by1-UTC+1-FLY.png 


Last Friday night of the month? Put your kids to bed or place them in the right seat and start your engines, as vACC Switzerland launches the latest addition to its event catalogue at Geneva International Airport (LSGG).
With a single concrete runway, controllers face the challenge of getting the timing just right, in order to clear you to land just seconds after departing traffic’s gear has left the ground. Needless to say, expect late landing clearances.

Waiting at the holding point? Get ready to line up behind landing traffic or execute a rolling takeoff, for there is bound to be traffic on final awaiting that late landing clearance.

We are up for the challenge, fully staffed and ready to get you in and out safely, one by one. Look out for the chain of landing lights on the ILS in Geneva, every last Friday of the month from 1900z to 2100z.

Thats now possible every second Thursday of the month from 18-20z with full ATC. vACC Switzerland and RG Frankfurt are proudly presenting the monthly connection between Stuttgart (EDDS) and Geneva (LSGG).

Exciting approaches, changing landscapes en-route and well trained controllers will make this trip a memorable one. So take your airliner or business jet - general aviation or scheduled flight - every pilot is welcome!

OP_TB_TWR_CPT.png

We may not be quite sure about the weather forecast for this sunday evening, but we are quite sure, that things will get really sweaty for out colleague Ondrej Penicka, as he will be passing his controller practical test at Brno (LKTB).  So, let’s give this small city a massive load of traffic and help Ondrej prove that he fully deserves his Tower rating. 

On Sunday 12th November from 19z you can expect fully staffed LKPR & LKTB. We are looking forward to see you in the skies.

Virtual Airlines around the world!

vACC Switzerland is pleased to announce the one and only original VA-Meeting 2018. We invite you to our major airport Zurich (LSZH) on 3 March 2018, to participate in the biggest virtual flight event we provide, and which might be the biggest VA event on VATSIM. Mark this date in your calendar so you won't miss it!

Since 2007, this yearly event has become tradition and we are happy to offer you fully staffed airports again this year. However, not only Swiss controllers will be online. Our neighbours will support us to manage the massive traffic as well. Additionally, we will present you with partner airports you can fly to and from. You can expect full ATC coverage over the heart of Europe.

If you would like to experience a congested airspace over Zurich, make sure your VA participates in this huge event. We will find an appropriate gate or stand for each of you at Switzerland’s busiest airport. Please notice that all traffic in and out of Zurich will need a slot during the event (except VFR).

The VACC of the Czech Republic invites you for High Density Flyin - Runway to Hell 2018. The event will occur on 25th March 2018 from 16 to 21z at Prague Ruzyně Airport - LKPR. The capacity of the real Prague Ruzyně Airport is standing on its edge. The daily flow reaches 600 movements per day, with over 60 movements per rush hour, less than a minute between two landings or take offs. Special procedures have been implemented to manage such big traffic on a single runway. They are called High Intensity Single Runway Op.

And therefore we invite you to explore how the real pilots feel themselves:

  • [li]when they hear late landing clearance,
    [/li][li]when they must vacate as soon as it gets,[/li]
    [li]when they are number six on approach,
    [/li][li]when they are cleared for immediate take off,[/li]
    [li]when they have no chance to make a mistake![/li]



We offer full ATC services with 8 ATC positions, charts of destination, LKPR Free Scenery for MSFS and X-Plane, the extreme fun atmosphere with us. We will make our best for you to feel like in the middle of the rush traffic day at real Prague Ruzyně airport!

Dear pilots!

 

On 6th of March 2018 Magda Kanicka - PL-VACC's virtual air traffic controller has passed away. Althought she had been inactive for a couple of years, we still remember and recall her. Message of her death was absolutely staggering. Below our obituary post on the PL-VACC Facebook site we have obtained condolences throughout the whole world, especially from the VATSIM community.

 

PL-VACC's vATCs  are willing to commemorate Magda. We warmly invite you to Warsaw (EPWA) at 8th of April between 16 and 20 UTC. We encourage you to perform honourable low-pass waving your wings for the very last time to our colleague!

 

See you! We're hoping for a tremendouns attendance!
