  10. The Boston, New York, and Washington ARTCCs are once again teaming up to bring you an FNO like no other! We'll be lighting up the northeastern United States, renowned for heavy traffic both on the ground and in the air, and bringing service to three of the nationโ€™s busiest airports: Boston (KBOS), Newark (KEWR) and Washington-National (KDCA). We invite all aircraft to come and join us for this chance to fly with ATC service in the congested airspace of the Northeastern Corridor!
  11. Everyone, Please join me in congratulating Chris Raabe (RB) on finally completing his controller training at BVA! Chris joined BVA in November of 2015, almost three years to the day of completing his Boston Center OTS during Cross the Pond Eastbound 2018! Working this event is no small feat; traffic levels are at their highest, and every controller is put to the test. Chris now serves as an ATC Mentor and is active controlling and flying on the network. Congratulations again Chris, keep up the good work! The fun is only beginning...
  12. Clif, Congratulations on your appointment! Throughout my career at ZBW, you've been an outstanding individual, helping lead this community forth and provide the encouragement, nurture, and leadership that continues to make BVA the place it is today. I have every confidence that you will continue to thrive in this new position, and am excited to see what you can bring to the table as ATM, and what we can continue to bring to the table as an administration under your leadership. Congrats again!
  13. Hey Center, any chance of a diversion to Providence? Trying to not crash into someone else tonight...:p On a serious note, congrats HS! Itโ€™s been a pleasure to work with you so far; keep up the good work!
  14. UPDATE! Boston has been selected as one of the featured departure airports for the 2018 Cross The Pond Eastbound event! VATSIM's biggest and most challenging event takes place on Saturday, October 27 from ~6:15am-5pm ET. More information at: http://ctp.vatsim.net/. This is a serious event and pilots who are planning to book or fly transatlantic should be flying an add-on jetliner with FMS/routing capability as well as familiarity with oceanic procedures. Pilots flying the event book departure slots for Cross The Pond. Slots are limited, and they typically book very quickly. An announcement will be posted on this thread when bookings will open. The same as last time, bookings made will be estimated slot times (+/- 15 minutes) and estimated flight levels (+/- 1000ft). Actual slot time and flight level will be confirmed (via email and via login on the CTP website) along with your full route on the day of the event. Updates regarding the event will be posted in this thread as well as available on the CTP website. We hope you enjoy the event! Departure slots will be available between 1100z and 1500z from the following airports:- John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK/KJFK) Boston Logan International Airport (BOS/KBOS) Denver International Airport (DEN/KDEN)* Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ/CYYZ) Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD/KIAD) * Departures slots from Denver will run from 1000z to 1300z due to the increased distance. Arrival airports:- Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS/EHAM) Frankfurt Airport (FRA/EDDF) Manchester Airport (MAN/EGCC) Zurich Airport (ZRH/LSZH)
