Fly and See Santa (EGPH to EFRO in the A320)

Should we do this event as a VA? Its pretty interesting with congested airspace and holding patterns galore.

I don't see why not. When is the event held?

Not been announced yet. Usually mid December. They will announce it at Vatsim Scandinavia.

Someone from Vatsim Scandinavia just told me its on the 14th of December, which is a Saturday. Would you like me to help organise something?

Sure, we'll put a chartered flight in to the system and republish VATSIM Scandinavia promotional materials here. If you can work out a good route and some links to charts, that's always helpful  :)

The routes are published by vatscan before the event so they will be set in stone.

I did the event last year so know what to expect, would you like me to put together a programme/order of play for the event?

We will have to promote this event internally too, as an "Intercity VA at Fly and See Santa" so we get a good turnout.

If you could that would be great. It will appear in the charters list in ACARS and also here in the forums and Discord

Hi,

That would be fun but expect extreme delays. One time i was in middle Sweden and was put in a hold. Eventually i was running low on fuel and had to divert to UmeƄ (ESNU) which is about 220nm from Rovaniemi :)

I think they lately have also staffed up nearby (relatively :) ) airports to reduce the delays such as Kittila (EFKT) and Ivalo (EFIV).

I think the event is ussually in mid December. It would be great to join! :)

Br / Jan
