I could not stay for the entire Summit, however what I saw was nothing short of incredible. I saw our VA Community come together to fly into Frankfurt all in one group. Thank you to all of the participants – without you, we literally could not have pulled this off. You truly showed us what a community can do when we work together.
Huge thanks to @joshfly8, who did an incredible job getting and managing the ATC for the event and creating many of the procedures. @Danman also deserves a massive amount of praise for all of his work on the gate assignments and ground procedures, along with @Aquila who spent many hours analyzing the real world charts to give us accurate information. All the IFATC controllers: @Chris_Hoover, @Joseph_Krol, @mwe2187, @Diederick, @AdamCallow, @Brent_A, @Finley_Baverstock and @Trio and @Jose_Oscana (the real MVPs, who stayed and controlled for the entire summit without taking a break) for their fantastic service provided to all of the pilots today, accommodating those who were not aware of the procedures. Lastly, once again, I’d like to thank the community, who came out in the masses to support us all. It is a rewarding feeling – to know that everyone came to Frankfurt, taking hours out of their day, for something you have done. It is a feeling I get, and I’m sure everyone else gets when they do plan such large events, and without this amazing, helpful, supportive community, that never would’ve been possible.
Thank you and keep soaring,
