On Saturday, November the 25th, VATeir and VATSIM UK will be packing the airspace above Ireland and the UK to capacity as aircraft make their way between Gatwick and Dublin, from 1830z until 2130z. Both airports are renowned for their very intense single runway operations, with Gatwick being the busiest single runway airport in the world, and Dublin close behind. There will be plenty of late landing clearances and expeditious takeoff clearances to go around (pun unintended)! The length of the event gives pilots plenty of time to fly over and back between the two airports, with full ATC along the way for what will be a fantastic event.

It may still be November however Christmas IS coming!
With that in mind, VATSIM UK is proud to present its annual festive Channel Islands Christmas Shopper event, on the 2nd December between 1900-2130.
We will be staffing all of the Channel Islands airfields (EGJJ, EGJB & EGJA) with full area ATC.
Why not take the opportunity to do those inter-island flights like Aurigny do real world, fly in from London or mainland Europe or even from further afield!. The choice is yours as passengers swarm the Islands to take advantage of lower tax rates on all their Christmas shopping in one of the more populous of HM Crown Dependencies!
We suggest using routes from the Standard Route Document (SRD) for flights from the UK into any of the Channel Islands. If pilots do not have the latest scenery, please state so in your remarks as there are significant differences between the many versions and controllers will do their utmost to accommodate those differences.
