VATSIM Cross the Pond Eastbound Airport Voting Now Happening

On the 28th of October 2023, thousands of virtual pilots will be crossing the Atlantic Ocean for VATSIM’s bi-annual Cross the Pond event.

For those unaware, Cross the Pond is the world’s biggest online flight simulation event run by VATSIM, an online air traffic network. Pilots are invited to cross the Atlantic Ocean with full air traffic control coverage throughout the journey via one of the North Atlantic Tracks (NAT-Tracks). The event runs twice a year, with a westbound leg in April preceding an eastbound leg in October.

As per tradition, pilots and controllers have the ability to vote on the airports that will be a part of the event. Those who want to vote will be able to put their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice, with each vote being allocating point amounts. Those votes are then tallied up before the final airport selection is made. Event airports are those that are fully staffed for the duration of the event.
