About The Event

Once again it’s time for Cross The Pond. If you haven’t seen this before, it’s an event held twice a year on the VATSIM Network for PC sims like XP12 and MSFS2020. This is my Infinite Flight edition of the event. It’s westbound this time, flying from (mostly) Europe to the Americas. Below you can see a list of all the feature airports on both sides of the Atlantic. These are the same airports which were chosen for the VATSIM event.
