  1. Please welcome Kyle as our newest S1 here at BVA. He MUstered up the gusto to MUve some serious tin while not MUtilating any clearances. He's going to be a great addition to any Cab staffing, and I hope to see him work a MUltitude of traffic near future.
  2. Please join me in congratulating Connor Tam in getting his Class C Ground/Delivery certification! Connor showed he's got what it takes to manage the bustling ground at Portland, and beyond! Well done TM, see you on the scopes.
  3. Ladies and Gentleman of BVA! Please allow me to present to you our newest S1 controller, Brodey Moran (CG). For the past few weeks I've had the pleasure of training with CG, and today we finished up his C/D DEL/GND with a session at the very gusty Portland Jetport. He handled all the dubiously irresponsible pilots, most of whom just couldn't quite read back their hold-short instructions the first time. Please join me in congratulating CG on his completion of the S1 curriculum. I'm sure we'll be seeing at Logan in no-time.
  4. Cheers to 21 Years! Save the date for the 21st Annual Boston Tea Party presented by Boston Virtual ARTCC! On Saturday, August 8th, our controllers will gather in Nashua, NH to bring you seven uninterrupted hours of ATC coverage across the entirety of the Boston ARTCC. That includes Boston (KBOS), Bradley (KBDL), Providence (KPVD), Syracuse (KSYR), Portland (KPWM), Albany (KALB), and The Cape. We'll kick the party off at 12:00 pm ET on August 8th and control the entire day until 7:00 pm. Be advised that due to the nature of the live event, we will promptly halt ATC services at 7:00 pm ET, so please plan your flights accordingly. Pilots are highly encouraged to read Boston Virtual ARTCC's Letter to Airmen before flying! During the event, pilots may also participate in our annual Tea Party Poker Run! Participating pilots can receive virtual poker cards after completing eligible flights. Pilots holding the best hands at the end of the event will have the opportunity to win great prizes from our Event Sponsors, which include HiFi, Orbx, RealityXP, Rex Simulations, and Thrustmaster! Rules and participation information will be posted prior to the event on a dedicated Tea Party event page here on the BVA website. Stay tuned!
  5. Important Reminders for Pilots Flying the HONK! FNO (April 17) We look forward to staffing Boston (KBOS) and Bradley (KBDL) for HONK!, beginning at 7pm ET on Friday, April 17. In partnership with VATCAN, Toronto (CYYZ) will also be fully staffed. As pilots who have flown in recent VATSIM events will know, traffic is very busy on the network these days! Recent FNO events have seen record levels of traffic that, in many cases, exceeds the real-world capacity of the airports. We want to ensure everyone who flies in our HONK! FNO has a great experience. To do that, we are asking for the cooperation of VATSIM pilots to help spread out the traffic. By following some of the recommendations below, you’ll help ensure everyone gets the benefit of busy frequencies but smooth air traffic control experiences. If you are planning to fly in and around our airspace on Friday, please consider the following: Boston Center (ZBW) has planned staffing for pilots to fly: Into KBOS Into KBDL Between CYYZ and KBOS, in relatively limited numbers We encourage pilots to plan flights from other places and various directions into each of CYYZ, KBOS, and KBDL. This is not a crossfire! You don’t need to exclusively fly between these airports and if everyone tries to fly between the airports, there will be significant delays and airborne holding—all of which we want to avoid. Please strongly consider flying into Hartford (KBDL) instead of Boston (KBOS)! This makes for more interesting traffic: you’ll be descended early to avoid other flows, but will still hear all the busy Boston arrival streams. We have a full staff of controllers at KBDL throughout the event and want them to be just as busy as the crews at CYYZ and KBOS. If you are planning a virtual airline or group flight, don’t fly between the featured airports. You’ll be taking up slots from other pilots. Instead, split your group into 3 and plan arrivals from various airports into each of CYYZ, KBOS, and KBDL from different directions. Take on the challenging of timing your flights to arrive about 5-10 minutes apart so you land together but haven’t flown the whole way with each other. It makes for a much more interesting experience and helps balance traffic – plus it allows the other facilities who are providing supporting staffing to see some departures. Please read our Letter to Airmen, which includes important reminders for flying on the network and links to scenery updates for our airports.
  6. The Non-Event Routes are found below for Boston Arrivals. Please review the VATSIM brief for CTP pilots. It includes information on oceanic procedures, the NAT Tracks the CTP team created, and guidance for non-event traffic. The routes below are a combination of the routing pairs found in the post so you won't have to peice them together yourselves.

  7. Routes will be posted here after the routes planning meeting tomorrow. Please check this thread if you plan on departing from Europe, please check back prior to departing for route information.
  8. CTP Westbound is coming up quickly, and we need your help to ensure Boston is chosen as an arrival field for the event. Please head to the Cross The Pond website to cast your vote before March 7th at 7:59 pm ET (2359Z). Go checkout the event posting we made earlier for a bit more background on the event, and go ahead and share our Facebook post.
  9. We need your help to vote KBOS as an arrival airport for Cross the Pond 2020 Westbound! Voting is open until March 7th. To vote: Go to vats.im/ctp. Click 'Login' at the top, and login using your VATSIM CID and password. Once logged in, click 'Vote' at the top of the page. Choose a departure field, select Boston as your arrival airport, and click "Submit Vote". Cross The Pond is VATSIM's largest event; thousands of pilots and controllers get together to fly and control it. The event will be held on April 4th, beginning at 1100z (7am ET). Virtually the entire east coast of the U.S. is typically staffed along with Western Europe and Oceanic ATC. But we need your help: we'll only be selected as an arrival field if we get the votes for it. Vote now and help ensure we are selected as one of the U.S. arrival airports for the event.
  10. Glad you enjoyed it. I flew into LEB in an A320, and it was certainly interesting to deal with the congested 1-in-1-out scenario and the airport size relative to my plane. Hope to see you at another one!
  11. Congrats KY! See you on the network!
  12. Good catch! I've talked with the VATUSA guys and they're fixing it.
