Repetitive Event: every Tuesday

Next Event: 24th October 2017

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.

Repetitive Event: every second thursday of the month

Next Event: 9th November 2017

1706-LSGG-EDDS.jpg

The Swabian Jura is too low? Why not flying to the Swiss Alps! From sparingly Swabians to the rich Genevan - in less than an hour. Or in the reverse direction from the scenic Lake Geneva to one of the biggest urban centers in Germany.
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!

Runway%20to%20Heaven%20-%20Banner.png

The Czech VATSIM community commemorates the sad October 2010, when our founding member Pavel Svoboda suddenly passed away. On 12 October 2010, we lost the most passionate VACC-CZ staff member, tireless mentor, patient event coordinator, unforgettable virtual aviation promoter, and mostly our great real-life friend.

VACC-CZ organizes annual meeting at Karlovy Vary from where we will provide ATC services for LKPR and LKKV. This is a non-booking event so any type of traffic is welcome at LKPR. You can simply participate by writing "Pavel Svoboda memorial flight" to remarks in your flightplan. For those who want to express memory of Pavel, you can proceed to Karlovy Vary (LKKV), make low-pass or touch-and-go procedure on active runway (because of low capacity of apron in Karlovy Vary), and continue to Praha Ruzyne (LKPR) or to your destination.

File IFR flight plan to LKPR with last point of route or if departing from LKPR first point: STAY01/0010 and Remarks: STAYINFO01/ TG (for touch-and-go) or LP (for low-pass) AT LKKV RMK/Memory of Pavel Svoboda.

Runway to Heaven 2017 will take place on Saturday 21st October 2017 from 14 till 22 UTC. But because our real-life meeting starts already on Friday, we will be online also on Friday 20th October in the evening while doing ATC team coordination training.

You can find the event website with links to required charts and sceneries at https://rtheaven.vacc-cz.org

We are looking forward to your flight.

[29 October 2017, 0500-2330z] Real Operating Hours - Geneva Edition 2017

1710-ROH-LSGG-ban-1,0.jpg

Have you ever…
… dreamed of ATC all day long?
… wished to have controllers guiding you on early morning approaches while the sun is rising?
… wanted to fly a four leg rotation with guaranteed service on your departure and arrival?
… hoped to get a whole day of ATC as real as it gets?
We make it happen again! After the successful launch in 2016, it's now time again to offer you Real Operating Hours. We will staff Geneva (LSGG) on 29th October 2017 from 0500-2330z.

Complete your walk around in the dawn to be ready for a number of inter-europe rotations. Welcome your passengers on board and complete the boarding on time in order to not fall behind schedule on the very first leg. Enjoy the unusual long ILS approach for runway 23 over the Lake Geneva or vectors over mountainous terrain for runway 05, depending on the wind situation. As fog/mist is not unusual in the early morning hours at this time of the year, you might expect low visibility at ground levels. Even holdings might be assigned.

After the first wave of IFR traffic has quieten down, it's time for the small VFR aircraft to start their Sunday trip. The Valais and Vaud Alps are waiting for you just at the other end of Lake Geneva. And if you can't stop admiring the beautiful mountainous Swiss landscape, make a stop for example at Gruyère, Lausanne, Sion or Saanen-Gstaad for a coffee or lunch. Also helicopter trips are recommendable in this region. On the way back, take a look at Castle Chillon near Montreux and follow the vineyards back towards Geneva.

Enjoy a continous staffing on different positions and experience the Real Operating atmosphere. We look forward to you to liven the airport up on 29th October 2017 from 0500-2330z!

Dear fellow pilots,

VACC-CZ and VATSIM Germany are happy to offer a LKPR–EDDH City Shuttle. The event will take place on Sunday 19th November 2017 from 17 till 21z.

Fly a direction of your choice between Prague and Hamburg and enjoy friendly and competent ATCs. Controllers of both cities will be happy to handle all traffic, be it VFR or IFR and are looking forward to bring you on your way to your destination.

Enjoy an exciting approach at Ruzyne Airport. Maybe you are lucky and weather conditions will allow a beautiful view across Prague. Or try an approach over Hamburg’s waterways. Due to the short flight there is also time for flying from and to both airports, including a turnaround for a proper flight preparation.


For your convenience, here are two routes for your flights. Of course you are free to choose any other routing. Both routes are valid for upper airspace. 

LKPR – EDDH: VENOX Y621 ESLOR UM748 RARUP

EDDH – LKPR: RAMAR Z998 OSKAN UM748 HDO M725 GOLOP


All relevant charts for LKPR can be found here: https://www.vacc-cz.org/en/airports/lkpr
You can also find a very good SOP file and freeware sceneries for MSFS and X-Plane on the link above. Or you can enjoy beautiful Mega Airport Prague scenery from Aerosoft.
Please note: After departure you’re supposed to change over from Ruzyne Tower to Praha Radar on your own, without further notice. The initial climb is 5000ft.

All relevant charts for EDDH can be found here: http://www.vacc-sag.org/airport/EDDH
Please note: After departure you’re supposed to change over from Hamburg Tower to Bremen Radar on your own, without further notice. The initial climb is 5000ft. VFR Charts require a login. VFR Pilots not able to login are advised to use www.skyvector.com.

EDDF-LPPT.jpg

 

Dear Pilots,

under the motto "Explore New Destinations," RG Frankfurt, in cooperation with Portugal, is offering a Frankfurt (EDDF) - Lisbon (LPPT) One-Way Shuttle!

As the capital of the southern European country Portugal, it represents a cultured and artistic city. That is why tourists from around the world come here, even though business trips are becoming ever more popular.

The busiest airport, Humberto Delgado Lisbon, is made up of two runways, one of which, the 03/21 running 3705 meters long, is usually used both for landing and takeoffs.

Frankfurt represents Germany´s busiest airport by easily managing high volumes of traffic over four runways. Departures to the South usually depart from runway 18. There are two routes: passing France and the Biskaya sea or via Switzerland, the Pyrenees and central Spain.

To that effect, a flight from Frankfurt to Lisbon could be a fun experience, which is why RG Frankfurt kindly invites you to the EDDF-LPPT One-Way Shuttle on Saturday, the 25th of November, 2017. Departures will take place in Frankfurt between 1500 – 1700z, the flight time will be approximately 3 hours. We asked for ATC along the whole route and you will get fetched up at Lisbon by the Portugese team.

Prepare yourselves for a few minutes delay at holdingpoints, very close separation and swift landings and partake in this event, as it is called "Explore New Destinations!"

RG Frankfurt and vACC Portugal will wait for you!
