  1. The airspace along the Long Island Sound is a bustling corridor full of small sea-side airports, and scenic getaways from the big city. Boston and New York ARTCCs are teaming up to staff the airports between Islip-MacArthur and Providence (ISP, PVD), including all the Class D airports (BDR, HVN, HTO, GON, OQU, and FRG).
  2. Boston, New York, and Washington ARTCC's are teaming up for the 3rd annual Northeastern Corridor event on February 5th. Join us from 7-12pm ET (and maybe a bit after) for a heavy rush of traffic along one of the most congested corridors in the world. We'll be fully staffing Washington-Dulles, LaGuardia, Raleigh-Durham, Boston-Logan, Baltimore, Westchester Co., Bradley, Nantucket, and Providence airports.  Come visit some of the best airports the East Coast has to offer!
  3. Montreal FIR and Boston ARTCC are teaming up for a Cross-Border Crossfire event during the latest installment of Montreal's Monthly event series. Take advantage of the continuous ATC Coverage between Montreal (CYUL) and Bradley (KBDL) airports and transit the border in your favorite aircraft. Event starts at 7pm ET (2359Z) and will end at 11pm ET (0400Z) on May 11th.
  4. 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 this GA Fly-In event, local air traffic control is staffed at smaller 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. The event features Nantucket (KACK), Martha's Vineyard (KMVY), Hyannis (KHYA), and Cape Cod CGAS (KFMH) airports. It’s also a great time to try out one of our WINGS flights. Remember, many of the flights have published Alternate Airports, allowing you to earn your BVA pilot ratings at event airports!
  5. Join BVA for a springtime bash with our Bunny Hop! What better way to celebrate the season than some easy-hopping around the New England area? We'll be staffing Boston, Bradley, and Portland for the evening, and we hope you can come join us! How many airports can you visit while we're online?

  6. BVA's Minor Facility Showcase gives pilots the opportunity to experience one of our minor airports. Local and overlying air traffic controllers will be providing service for those looking to explore the area, practice instrument approaches, arrive from afar, or just remain in the pattern. With a single focus-airport, this is the perfect opportunity to experience being sequenced at a busier airport with both IFR and VFR arrivals. This week's event features the controlled airport of Manchester, in Manchester, New Hampshire. "Strategically situated in the heart of New England, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is located less than fifty miles north of Boston, Massachusetts and less than an hour’s drive from the region’s most popular ski areas, scenic seacoast beaches and peaceful lakefront resorts. MHT is the premier aviation gateway for the region." - flymanchester.com It’s also a great time to try out one of our WINGS flights.

  7. In the Regional Circuit, we staff up multiple 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 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. This Regional Circuit features Boston (KBOS) and Bangor (KBGR) airports.
  8. This week's BVA event features a special twist on our normal GA Fly-In series. On February 28th we're celebrating two great Living History foundations in the New England area: The Collings Foundation and the New England Air Museum. The New England Air Museum is an aerospace museum located at Bradley Intl. (KBDL), and The Collings Foundation is a non-profit located in a small town just outside Worcester. We encourage pilots to fly their favorite vintage or historical aircraft into KORH or KBDL from any of the surrounding staffed airports.
