Sweet! Congrats, everyone! Let's show 'em what ZBW is made of. Do we want to have MR create an event thread on the event planning page so we can start planning way in advance?

United departs from terminal B now (and Continental is defunct)


More importantly: All RNAV DPs are now valid on effectively every runway (except for runways that you definitely won't be assigned.

Any special requests for alias languages? I'm thinking some basics in French, Swedish, Portuguese, and Spanish with a respond in english please at the end.

I've been doing CTPs for 7 years.  English works just fine.  And in the interest of simulating actual ATC, you won't hear USA ATC issue any commands in anything but English (I know, I know, they don't use text or aliases either, but that doesn't mean you have to turn all of this into an anti-simulation... ;) ).

Okay... So, "No I can't hear you, or I need you to post as text" "Je ne vous comprenez pas, s'il vous pla?, repetez par texte"  is necessary. Well that saves me time, my Portuguese is atrocious.


EDIT: I gotcha with the unrealistic thing, I've had some... interesting occurrences where a pilot didn't speak english well enough to understand "post as text".
