Can’t wait for ATC in the Caribbean. I’m an expert when it comes to flying in regions like the Caribbean. Thank you so much Tyler! I really like this idea. Now, I can be near professional ATC during the course of the week. I’m so going to be flying on Monday morning.

Happy Holidays!

Can’t wait for IFATC in Aus!

Tyler, a little heads up about the Aer Lingus bases. They moved from EGAA to EGAC about 6 years ago.

But thanks for having a Belfast airport.

Do you think they’ll still be at OMDB around 215-230Z? I know you say you’ll be ending at 000Z, but I’m planning an overnighter to Perth for tonight.
I know Tyler Shelton is on break, but I’m not directly asking him.

There is a high chance we will not be controlling OMDB after 0200Z, as we always adhere to this schedule. Airports opening after 0000Z would be in the US area, but airports opening before 0000Z can stay open until the controller decides to close. So unless the OMDB controller decides to stay open for 2 more hours, it’s likely there will not be coverage at OMDB.

There are few exceptions occasionally, where an airport outside of coverage area would be opened, however one/a few users requesting ATC coverage outside of coverage area is not one of these exceptions.

You can always check and see if OMDB is still open before you spawn. We’re apologize for the inconvenience, and have a safe flight!

I’m going to see if we can get the KCVG hub staffed and do DHL flights…

I recalculated airtime and decided to leave closer to 300Z instead, so I’m guessing there’ll be a 98% chance of no ATC. Bummer. Good luck signaling those virtual pilots whenever you’ll be IFATCing.

SWA is huge at DEN, why is it not included?

Because I wanted some diversity. KDEN gets plenty of love in other airlines. :)
