  2. In the Regional Circuit, we staff up two of our airports to provide pilots with an opportunity to receive 'gate-to-gate' ATC service for the duration of the event. Pilots are encouraged to fly between the two airports and make the return flight if time allows; however, traffic from other airports is welcome as well. The Regional Circuit always creates an immersive atmosphere with busy frequencies and congested airways between the host airports.Boston Virtual ARTCC is teaming up with ZNY to bring you this special 4-hour edition of the Regional Circuit, featuring Philadelphia (KPHL) and Boston (KBOS).Local Time: October 17, 2019 1900-2300ETZulu Time: October 17, 2019 2300-0300z

  10. Set the parking brake on the airliner and knock the cobwebs off your favorite general aviation aircraft! The General Aviation Fly-In visits locales across the country that are famous for their scenery and general aviation influence. While anything from a single engine Cessna to a regional jet is welcome in this event, ‘low and slow’ offers the best opportunity to experience the scenery. During the event, local air traffic control is staffed at smaller Class C and D airports, with overlying radar controllers to provide VFR Flight Following and IFR services. Fly VFR closed traffic, practice instrument approaches, or fly VFR or IFR between the featured airports: the choice is yours.This GA Fly-in features Cape Cod airports such as Nantucket (KACK), Hyannis (KHYA), and Martha's Vineyard (KMVY)!Local Time: August 29, 2019 2000-2300ETZulu Time: August 30, 2019 0000-0300z Controller signups here.

Connecticut!Boston Virtual ARTCC invites you to this Saturday night gala, hosted at Bradley International Airport (KBDL). Bradley will be fully staffed on Saturday, September 7 starting at 2300z, with controllers ready to make airplanes dance a Spicy McHaggis Jig around the Y90 TRACON. We will be online for 4 hours or more - plenty of time to fly in, get a Rose Tattoo, say “Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya”, and then be Going Out in Style. See you there!
  12. Save the date! FlightSimExpo 2020 will be held on June 12-14 at Tropicana Las Vegas.

  13. Congratulations are in store for PS for becoming our newest fully-certified Class B Ground controller! After being put through the PaceS, [better] Cam got the better of those pesky sweatbox skyboats and commanded their paths (along the ground) with bravery and fortitude. Great job again, and don't let those EWR flights get above 16,000!
  14. Just found this thread after 2 months. Thanks everyone.

  17. The VATSIM network team is aware of an issue affecting access to weather information within VATSIM. Currently, this also prevents controllers from connecting a textual or voice ATIS using vATIS. Until vATIS and regular METAR functionality returns, please be aware of the implications for pilots you are controlling around the unavailability of weather information, and provide appropriate runway/planning information in a timely fashion. https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=79161#p534489
  18. You're welcome! Before you go ahead and download all of them, have a look at Gateway. It's possible some of these have been already included in XP11 by their authors and you'd be doubling up your scenery. At some point in the future I'll have to go through the list and see which ones are already added.
  19. This is amazing! Thank you. All I had for the area was freeware KBOS, and ORBX KACK and 2B2/6B6. Now I just need to go visit all these nice additions! Well done! -Nick
  20. Thank you to the many members who have taken the time to email, Discord, or provide feedback to us via voice in TeamSpeak. We are excited to finally have a website platform that we have control over. Over the next 1-2 weeks, we will be implementing several bug fixes and minor changes to improve functionality based on your feedback. Stay tuned on this thread and here on our forums where we'll provide more information.
  21. Looking great!!! FlyBVA looks STUNNING.
  22. I'm honestly just completely amazed at how professional, organized and supportive BVARTCC is. The new website looks fantastic and the resources - particularly the team - are tremendous. As someone who's very new to the sim environment, I can't put into words how grateful I am for this community. I hope to give back as much as possible over time. Thanks for all you do!
  23. "THANK YOU SO MUCH" to all and everyone that participated in the growth of BVARTCC. I join special thanks to Szymon and the creators of "the new way" that allows us to continue enjoying Flight Simulation and Air Traffic Control, together !!!
