After several months of little hard work from me and the IFOC team, it’s finally here.
The Flight of the Nations
For the opening ceremony, we will be having a mass group flight from EHAM to EDDL in this year’s host region, Amsterdam. All competitors, IFOC staff, and general spectators are welcome. As we are expecting lots of people, we have made detailed plans which you must be following at all times.
Server: Advanced. We need good ATC, and people to follow instructions.
Aircraft limitation: Jet aircraft, B737/A321 size or below. This is because of gate restrictions. Livery choice is free.
Please arrive by 1955Z or earlier, we will start departures at 2000Z. @Adrien has sorted gate assignments by team, everyone must comply with this (see below). IFES will be leading the procession, and then we will be departing in this order:
- Team SE
- Team CH
- Team DE
- Team AU
- Team GB
- Team CA
- Team US
Only request taxi when the team before have all cleared the apron. Expect to be split up as a team, we have loads of departures to get out, and lots of runways to do it on.
Cruise: 14000ft @ 300kts.
Route: Follow IFES, expect direct for the active runways at EDDL.
Please do not circle or hold to wait for other team members. It is important to help approach on the way in that we keep a consistent flow. Tune approach as soon as it you are near enough to receive.
Follow approach and tower instructions. On landing:
Team captains and IFOC should fill from the north of the airport, face the runway (Cargo area)
Everyone else should fill from the south of the airport, terminal C, then B, then A and possibly into cargo. Do not park as a team, just fill in whatever order.
IFPM with be providing media coverage, and IFES will be doing a flyover and escort.
We hope to see as many of you there as we can ;)
