  • STARs and SIDs will be in use for congested airspaces(DC/NY), expect deviation from your flight plan.
  • Not following ATC instruction can result in a ghosting.

Hope to see you all there! :)

Ooh BDL! I fly there very often to see my grandparents so hopefully I’ll stop by

Looks great

I assume this will be on Expert Server?

Yes. This will be on Expert

Okay cool, thanks 😊

See you all there! This should be a great fun event! :)

I’ll be at LGA, thanks guys!

that’s cool

Oh you bet I’m gonna fly that river visual into DCA


I’d also like to remind pilots to avoid local flying (for example no DCA-IAD, EWR-JFK). This can interfere with those arriving and departing the DC/NY airspace, making radar controllers work harder than they need to to provide good separation between aircraft.

Stop by and have some fun tomorrow!

Thanks for controlling DC!


Translation. It has so many GA gates.


Thanks! Looking forward to this, and there’s a good chance that I along with a few other pilots of ANVA will be flying in to KJFK! This is going to be really fun!

No, it’s called the river visual.
