Pilots – Your Guide to VATSIM Cross the Pond Westbound 2021

Guide To Cross The Pond Vatsim

VATSIM Cross The Pond is one of the most popular events on the online network. The 2021 Westbound edition will start on April 24th 2021 from 11:00z until 23:00z. VATSIM CTP takes place twice a year, one time Westbound (from Europe to North America) during Spring and the other Eastbound (North America to Europe) during Fall. 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.

These procedures are not so easy to grab at a first glance, but worry not : here’s the FSElite guide to help you make your way across the pond and enjoy the experience as much as possible.
