Congrats to the entire community! It's amazing how lucky we are at BVA to be a recurring member of this event. Thanks to all the folks who make this community so great, and we hope everyone is as excited as we are.

All pilots flying Cross the Pond: please review our Pilot Brief prior to departure. The brief is attached to this post.

 

As with Cross the Pond Eastbound, VATSIM has asked pilots who were not issued a booking/slot to avoid flying transatlantic. We welcome pilots to fly domestic routes into and out of Boston. We also expect coverage at our satellite airports like Bradley (KBDL) and Providence (KPVD). If you were not given a booking, please consider domestic routes to and from any airport that is staffed within Boston Center!

Slot bookings for Cross the Pond are now available from the CTP website. A slot is (basically) required in order to fly transatlantic during Cross the Pond.

Slot announcements were sent out yesterday, and pilots who received one will have been notified via email. If you did not receive a slot and are looking for one, or if you wish to drop/exchange your slot, please post here to help coordinate with other BVA members.

My first time trying to get a slot, and I did not get one. 😞 Looks like its very popular.

 

So I am looking for a slot - i can fly out of any airport in europe - prefer landing in KBOS or KJFK.
