Region: New York
Notam: Hello all! Welcome to another vocal ATC event brought to you by the Infinite Flight Air Traffic Service. We are a virtual organisation that provides professional and realistic vocal air traffic control services. We operate using Discord. You can find our discord server invite link on our website. Take a look at our thread for more information.
The event we have lined up is a little more creative than usual, and we really hope you enjoy it.
Unfortunately, Infinite Flight is not quite yet at the stage where it has follow-me cars, so in this event, we will be making the most of what it does have. We will have 5 people in Cessna 172s located at KJFK airport, who will act as follow-me cars for arriving aircraft, to take them to the gate. This will mean that you will not need to follow ground charts for KJFK.
Unlike previous events, you will not be able to fly freely between a selection of airports; there will be a specific route. The route will be from KSWF to KJFK. There will be no specific flight plan for you to copy, however the clearance delivery controller will issue you a SID (Standard Instrument Departure), which will be on a chart that you will need access to. If you need any help with getting the chart, you can ask the controller to send you a link to it. Also unlike previous events, there will be gate assignments, both for the departure and arrival airports:

MORE GATES CAN BE ADDED IF NEEDED
To request a gate, please ask below and include your aircraft type and callsign. PLEASE NOTE THE A380 IS NOT ALLOWED.
20-60 minutes before you fly, you will need to post your flight plan in the #fss channel on our discord server, following this example: AAL5729//IFR//KSWF-KJFK//FL180//1810Z. This shows your callsign, you are flying IFR, your departure and arrival airports, your requested cruise altitude, and your intended departure time.
HOW THE FOLLOW-ME CARS WILL WORK: You will exit the runway and contact the ground frequency. They will then tell you a follow-me car is on request. All you need to do then is hold position until a Cessna 172 with the callsign “FOLLOW-#” arrives. Then, you will simply follow it to your gate.
It is requested that once you are at your gate, you stay parked there, so there are some nice screenshot opportunities with a lot of other aircraft.
If you any of this is unclear or confusing, feel free to drop me a PM, either on Discord or the IFC.
If you need any general help regarding voice ATC communications, you can also PM me, or an instructor or any other staff member.
Once again, you can find a link to our discord server on our website.
We really hope to see as many people there enjoying themselves as possible!
