11JUL20 / 1800Z - Soaring Norfolk @ KORF

Crescas – you will grow

In the Hampton Roads region of coastal Virginia are the two largest cities of the state: Norfolk and Virginia Beach. They, along with the Virginian cities of Hampton, Newport News, Suffolk, and Portsmouth as well as the North Carolinian Elizabeth City and Outer Banks, are served by Norfolk International Airport.

orf glam2

The 70th-largest airport in the United States currently serves 23 destinations throughout the country, with GA aircraft increasing that count. It is surrounded by the military, with Norfolk Naval - the largest naval station in the world - close by. Norfolk also serves as one of two NATO strategic headquarters. Connecting it by road are the only bridge-tunnels in the US.

Five commercial airlines serve the airport: Frontier, Allegiant, American, Delta, and United. Fedex and UPS serve cargo. Plus, there are plenty of GA gates. You have the option to fly all those types of aircraft. I recommend that you fly in and back out after a brief layover at Norfolk, but you can just fly in or out if you prefer. If you’d like be part of a choreographed group converging on the airport, choose a Fly-In gate; whereas if you’d like to leave the airport along with many other pilots, take a Fly-Out gate.

Flying in and out with a layover in between is welcome and encouraged. Choose a gate and fly both routes for it. This is applicable for all four categories. Many gates change destinations, and all GA gates can.

  • Please follow the rules of the Expert Server, with correct use of Unicom or IFATC services if applicable.
  • Read the group PM before the event, and keep it open during for important communications.
  • Be ready to go at your assigned time to keep the event running smoothly.
  • Follow appropriate navigational procedures around Norfolk, with a STAR and approach provided for the Fly-In and a SID provided for the Fly-Out.
  • Fly-In pilots must be prepared to leave before the event is scheduled so that arrivals occur at that time.
  • Layover is scheduled for about thirty minutes to allow all arrivals to get in and pilots flying both legs to reset navigation and get ready to go.
  • Arrivals are scheduled for 1745Z while departures are scheduled for 1815Z for the reason above.

To get a gate, simply request the gate number and whether you’d like to fly-in, fly-out, or both. If you’d like a GA flyout gate, please also request a destination.
