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.

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!

Dear Pilots,

We proudly invite you to the "Moscow Visit Tel-Aviv" event.

This event is the Summer closing event of VATIL.

The event will take place on September 1st between 12:00-19:00 UTC, departures from Moscow (UUDD/UUEE) are planned from 12:00 to 15:00 UTC and arrivals to Tel Aviv (LLBG) between 16:00 and 19:00 UTC.

You can expect full ATC service at Moscow and Tel Aviv and ATC coverage during the flight.
The flight distance is about 1600 nm and the estimated flight time is 4 Hours

Come and join both busy airports with great ATC service!

We hope to see you in the air.


Recommended route:

UUDD - LLBG
DK DCT FV R11 TS R808 KANON B145 MIMRA G247 SM G900 ODIRA UW99 CRM UT243 GEM UA285 MUT UB545 VESAR UB15 ALSUS UR18 VELOX W13 SOLIN

Scenery and Charts: UUDD / UUEE

LLBG: Charts / P3D&FSX Scenery / XP Scenery

The main features of the Russian airspace are QFE and meters below transition level.
QFE is the barometric altimeter setting that causes an altimeter to read zero on the threshold of the active runway.
QNH causes the altimeter to read airfield elevation when on the ground. Elevations of Moscow airports are about 600 feet.
That is why if you use QNH instead of QFE, your altitude will be different up to 600 feet.
In Jeppesen charts, you can find “Alt/Height Conversion Table” for every Russian airport.
There are tables for Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo that take part in the event.
Image
The first column is what altitude you must maintain by QNH, second and third are heights by QFE in feet and meters resp.
ATC will give you third number – height in meters.
So, if ATC said “by QFE 1001 descend to height 600 meters” you can:
• set on your altimeter QFE 1001 hPa and set 2000 feet on MCP
OR
• request from controller QNH (or take it from METAR) and set 2600 feet on MCP
The difference is more than half of vertical separation standard.


We wish you a successful and enjoyable event!

"Ethiopia Here We Come!"

Hello Scandinavian pilots and air traffic controllers! 

On this week's Friday, the 21th of September, we will celebrate getting the Addis Adaba scenery to work with all FSX based simulators, all the way from FSX to P3D v4! 
Fixing the scenery took us about 16 hours. 


The Addis Adaba Airport is the largest airport in Ethiopia and it has a very hard approach as it is at 7300 feet and there might be clouds all the way to ground. Also it's raining season in Ethiopia now so there will be heavy rain if we have bad luck. Ethiopia has also the largest African airline, Ethiopian Airlines and they fly many flights every day from all over the world, including Stockholm Arlanda.


Ethiopian Airlines long-haul fleet:

- Airbus A350-900XWB
- Boeing 787-9
- Boeing 787-8
- Boeing 777-300ER
- Boeing 777-200LR
- Boeing 767-300ER

 

We're happy if you want to fly with us and celebrate this big thing for us because the scenery for Addis Adaba is one of the best freeware sceneries for African airports.


So join us at 1900Z this week's Friday at Stockholm Arlanda in VATSIM.

Depart time: 1950Z

ROUTE: BABAP P156 RASEL DCT DINRO DCT MATEL N616 RIXEN UG1 TETSA UL620 UNSAV UN616 FATIH UG1 IST UT35 AYT UA16 DERYA UM855 TOMBI UA16 DASNI UM855 PEDER UA16 MAROS UM855 KOSEG UA16 EVORA UM855 RASDA A16 CVO W8 KHG W601 DESDO P557 NUBAR UT124 LABLA

 

Download scenery:

FSX, FSX:SE and P3D V1-V3: HAAB FSX

P3D v4 only: HAAB P3DV4

 

Pictures of the Airport: Pictures of the airport can be found from the following link (THIS IS NOT THE DOWNLOAD LINK)

 

Please read the ReadMe first and if you're having problems with the scenery you can contact Jan via Discord (JanAir15#3740) and he will help you.

Thank you @Jan Galloix for fixing this scenery! I really appreciate it!

and thank you Magnus Maas for creating this scenery!
