VATSIM has opened the polls for choosing the airports that will be featured during their bi-annual CTP event. Only VATSIM members are allowed to vote. They are asked to pick one departure and one arrival airport among twelve choices for each. The event will be eastbound this time.
VATSIM CTP events are the busiest events of the VATSIM community. They happen twice a year, one being westbound, the other one being eastbound. Hundred of pilots cross the Atlantic Ocean during this events, under full ATC coverage, including transoceanic operations. The voting helps the VATSIM staff pick departure and arrival airports, with traditionally around 4 to 5 airports each side of the Atlantic Ocean fully staffed with ATC. For this particular event, the VATSIM team hopes to release their new voice codec, which has been in development for more than a year already.
