Nestled into the Rocky Mountains, SLC is a destination international airport with beautiful views both in
and out of the area. With interesting weather, high winds, and a good chance of snow in the wintertime, SLC provides all kinds of challenges for the pilots to get in and out of the airport.
Do I have to be a part of DLVA to join this event?
Nope! This event is open to any pilot eligible to fly on the expert server! We encourage pilots of the community to join us, as well as any VA’s that want to be a part of the event!
Do I have to make my own flight plan?
If you are choosing to join us from KSLC-KATL, then a pre-planned route will be provided. If you are flying to/from another airport, you will be expected to create your own flight plan.
Will there be SIDs/STARs at SLC and/or ATL?
At peak event hours, both fields may be expected to be heavily congested with traffic. Using SIDs and STARs for both SLC and ATL procedures are required. These procedures help keep the immediate airspace surrounding both airports organized and flowing. Failure to use SIDs and STARs will result in a violation/report.
Do I have to fly the designated event routes to be a part of the event?
Of course not! When flying out of SLC and/or into ATL, you pick your origin and destination of your choice! However, it is up to you to choose your departure time for your flight into SLC for the best arrival time in order to catch our main flight to ATL!
What should I be aware of when in the SLC and/or ATL airspace?
During this event, the airspace may be busy! Arrival and Departure procedures will be in use. Pilots are asked to practice professionalism and to follow directions exactly as they are given. Failure to cooperate with ATC instruction will result in a violation/report.
