The event on April 2nd is the Westbound event, meaning the event will start in the UK and Europe and simmers will fly west towards the US and Canada. 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. During the event, over 1000 pilots will be taking part, whilst 200 controllers will help them safely cross the pond.

Whilst the above airports will be serving as the primary event airports, where slots will be limited, other airports on both sides of the Atlantic may be online and be served by ATC. However, there may be delays or restrictions if you fly from non-event traffic.

The system in order to book slots will open shortly ahead of the event in April.

Which airport paring will you be hoping for this year?
