To provide the best possible ATC coverage for this event, we kindly request that IFATC members consider staffing both Riga International Airport (EVRA) and Barcelona International Airport (LEBL). This will enhance realism, coordination, and overall enjoyment for everyone involved.

However, in the event of a shortage of available controllers, we kindly ask for your understanding and flexibility. In such cases, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Familiarize yourself with the specific procedures for Riga International Airport (EVRA) and Barcelona International Airport (LEBL). Ensure you are well-versed in the taxiways, runways, and any unique airport operations.

  • In the absence of active ATC, pilots will rely on the Unicom frequency for communication. It is crucial to use Unicom correctly, providing clear and concise information about your intentions, such as taxiing, departing, or landing.

  • Before pushing back from the gate, it is vital to check the METAR for both departure and destination airports. Stay up-to-date with weather conditions, including wind speed and direction, visibility, and any significant changes that may affect aircraft operations.

By adhering to these guidelines, we can ensure a realistic and enjoyable experience for all participants, even in the absence of active ATC. Your professionalism and commitment to maintaining the highest standards of aviation within Infinite Flight are greatly appreciated.



Updated 12/4/23

When ATC services are available, it is mandatory to follow all instructions given by the controllers. Maintain professionalism, adhere to proper procedures, and cooperate fully to ensure efficient traffic flow.

It is crucial to understand that airBaltic Virtual or any of our staff members are not responsible for any violations that may occur during the event. Each pilot is individually responsible for adhering to the Infinite Flight rules and guidelines at all times.

We kindly request that all participants behave in a professional manner throughout the event. Show respect to fellow pilots and controllers, refrain from disruptive behavior or trolling, and maintain a positive and welcoming environment for everyone.

We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to these NOTAMs and helping us create a memorable and successful Wings Over Europe event. Remember, your actions contribute to the overall experience of each participant. These NOTAMs are subject to change and should be checked leading up to the start of the event.
