06FEB22 / 1400Z - Flash Flight: Geneva Lever @ LEMD

Today we’re heading to gorgeous Geneva which is situated in the soaring alpine mountain range! Buckle up and be ready to use the “Geneva lever”. What is the Geneva lever? To be short and sweet, it’s the flight spoilers. Due to the terrain, pilots commonly use the them to help reduce their speed or increase their descent rate. With it being such a common procedure, pilots gave the lever a nickname!

IFATC will provide service where able, so remember to always be in contact with them if they are open. This includes centre and departure frequencies.

I approve of the event name. If you never say Geneva Lever, you’re wrong!

Defo joining this one!

Oh bugger, I am on my way to Malaga rn. Well, I’ll spot you on the way 😉

Spawned in already :)

I’m on my way to Madrid from Los Angeles, so I’ll join when I have time!!

ATC should decrease the time between both take-offs, we wait too long to take off in any event, when the last one in line takes off already the first one is arriving at the destination, not funny at all.

Edit: I was 25 minutes in 1st in line waiting to take off, this will be the last event in which i will participate with so many people at the airport, the wait is too long for an airport like Madrid, 2 parallel runways to take off.

This is a FF so what do you expect ?
There is Flow Control in use ….
Yes … LEMD has two runways but LSGG only one … so if you wait 30 min to depart or wait 30 min to land … makes no difference


To be fair he does have a point, the departures were very slow and he made make each individual person line up and wait on the runway for 2-3mins before clearing them for takeoff so the wait was a little excessive between departures.
