29JUN21 / 0600Z to 1630Z - IFATC Long Haul Fly-In @ CYVR

Hello and welcome to a new series I’m starting with IFATC. Every week, I’m going to feature an airport that will be staffed with fully staffed ATC/ATC in between the times of the event. This week for the start of the series, we’re heading to Vancouver Canada. A great area of landscape and plenty of long hauls to choose from. The reason I picked a Tuesday is for every IFATC controller is eligible to control for this event series because on Tuesday’s, IFATC controllers are free to control any airport or frequency in the world. And you might be wondering, why are you starting the event time at 0600Z when the region changes? Well, I wanted to give everyone a chance to control and fly in for this event. And, if the airport gets busy at CYVR, I will have a secondary airport on the list. But, the main airport is going to be the one listed in the picture above.

Airport: CYVR and CYYC

Time: 2021-06-29T06:00:00Z to 2021-06-29T16:00:00Z

Oh! Wow! Great event! Delhi to Vancouver by Air India 77W is one of my favourite routes. I love flying this route! I would join this event but sadly I haven’t subscribed for IF pro. If I had IF Pro I would definitely join this event!

Yeah, I’ll allow it. Any Route can be flown for this event.

Ah I see what you mean. The event will be from 0600Z to 16:30Z so then in that time IFATC controllers can choose what time they want to control, and for how long ,but minimum 30Min.
