Your title time is incorrect. 1500 is 9am MDT, 10am CST, 11am EST, and it’s an hour later in the thread.

Looks like a fun event, the one thing I would say about having an approach controller is don’t. You won’t have a radar qualified controller, and this approach is challenging to control. We are much better off doing this approach ourself while in contact with tower.

Sorry, I was really planning to attend the one today, but 9 in the morning next week isn’t ideal. Sorry.

Yes you are I will sign u up

Approach is not to vector it to Landing but to give you vectors to airport in this case VNLK.

Also time change 2 hours back now

I’m not sure if I can attend, but sign me up! I’ll be in the Cessna 208. 👍
