VATSIM Cross the Pond Eastbound 2021 Happening October 30th

The bi-annual VATSIM Cross the Pond (CTP) even will be heading Eastbound on Saturday, October 30th. The eastbound event will see pilots depart from a selection of airports within North America and head over to the UK and Europe across the Atlantic. The exact timings have yet to be confirmed at this point in time.

The release date was confirmed on Twitter. However, whilst the event date is now set, there’s no information yet on what airports will be available to vote for the event airports this year. We’re told to keep our eyes peeled, and we’ll let you know once we learn anything new.

For those who don’t know what Cross the Pond is, the bi-annual event sees thousands of pilots fly alongside a team of controllers to fly across the Atlantic in a realistic manner. The goal is to replicate at best the specific Oceanic procedures with full ATC from departure to arrival. The lack of radar coverage for traffic deconfliction above the Atlantic Ocean means that the aircraft must obtain a specific clearance, follow a given route and report their position regularly.

You can prepare for the event now by checking out our Pilots Guide. The guide is based on last year’s Eastbound event, but many of the principles will apply. We’ll of course provide pilots with a new guide in time for the event. Which airports are you looking forward to flying to this year?
