Vatsim Cross the Pond Airports Revealed

ctpw

Here at FSElite, we are big fans of the VATSIM network and also the huge events they throw. Cross the Pond is perhaps their biggest bi-yearly event, seeing thousands of connections and pilots all try and cross the Atlantic ocean.

As the name suggests, airports with side of the Atlantic will be involved. For those unfamiliar, it’s usually a departure from a UK airport, or several European ones, landing into an east-coast USA main hub. This year is no different and you can expect to see plenty of flights from Manchester, Amsterdam, Munich and Stockholm. As for arrivals, you can expect the usual New York JFK and Boston to be full of traffic. Slightly different from usual this time, you’ll also be able to visit Orlando McCoy and Toronto.

The date for bookings will come shortly and as usual, it will be announced on the forums.

As per usual expect booking slot windows of 15 minutes with flight levels at +/- 1000ft. Your exact times will be confirmed on the day of the event.

Head over to the VATSIM forums to see further details.
