Everyone weekend, our ATC team opens an airport on the training server to provide quality service for pattern work for one hour and bring the community together while helping people get the landings they need. Make sure to check #live:events every week for these unique events!

People who apply for sponsorships will get their event announced on our Slack, get P&P ATC at the starting and ending airport (only on TS1 events), and get to put our logo in the event description. Keep an eye out for sponsored events in #announcements on our Slack.

I remember that my first P&P event was a year ago on July 14th! We flew from OAK to EWR to celebrate 50,000 IFC users.
However, I joined Slack later. I am very happy that I am a member of this amazing VO! During this time I met many wonderful people! 🙏❤️
