[Landed!] Aegean Virtual Presents: Discover Greece #3 - Ioannina! @ LGAV - 162000ZDEC18

Aegean Virtual Presents…

Welcome to the third Aegean Virtual “Discover Greece” Event!

In the past two installments, we travelled from Thessaloniki to Santorini, and from Chania to Corfu.

Next Sunday, we will take-off with our Dash-8 from the Greek capital of Athens, heading to Ioannina, a town near the Albanian border in the Epirus region of Northern Greece. Surrounded by mountains and situated at a large lake, the approach into this airport is nothing short of beautiful. The airport was just recently edited and released in the latest scenery push, and we would like to celebrate this by paying it a visit!

Aircraft: Dash-8 Q400 (Livery: Generic)

@Benjwri @PlaneCal @joslleymiguel_holand I have tried to balance it so that you all each have one frequency at the event!
And yes, a reminder will be sent to all attendants several hours prior to the event.

@George_Antoniadis You’ve got North Apron B62.

See you all there!


Hi, really sorry but I’ve just been pulled into a family Christmas meal at this time, so I won’t be able to do ATC.

Stand By Gates

If you still want to sign up, you are still able to do so! You can be added to our Standby List. This means that if one of the 8 participants do not show up - which can happen and often does - you can take their gate!

Sign up for the Stand By List today!

I think this airport can fit more than 8 with some creative parking! Dash Q for scale


Gate Update!

2 More Gates are available!

We have extended our limit for Ioannina’s ramp to 10 aircraft so that two more pilots may participate. Get these two while you still can!

Hy. Sign me up pls, SVA1986. Thnks
