Look out VATSIM, Boston has unleashed a new Center Controller!

Recommended Posts

Please join me in congratulating Evan Reiter (RT) in earning his Full Performance Level Center certification tonight!


As many Sweatboxes that I've run and scenarios I've created over the years, tonight's network traffic, especially for a Tuesday night, was something pretty special!


RT had already been controlling for over 2.5 hours when it was my turn to sit behind him, yelling and whacking him with rolled up newspapers.  Minute by minute, the traffic level grew.  The challenges grew.  There was aluminum all over the place, but RT kept it all coordinated and separated, dealt aptly with the large number of missed approaches due to weather, and even kept one pilot's Mom in check.  All traffic moved safely; no aircraft traded paint (or worse).  CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations Evan! - Thanks for leading the way, I'm looking forward to see our ATC staff join together in the ZBW ARTCC.


By the way, congratulations also to every controller that are working on their vZBW certifications.


The Future looks great!

Well deserved Evan!


Evan was controlling Boston Center this evening and it was very busy while I was flying.  Evan had a lot of pilots to deal with and he did a great job. I'm impressed.
