The IFVARB Anniversary Summit 2018
This is the official thread for the IFVARB’s anniversary summit. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the event and for those who have registered. We are expecting a summit-record 211 VA participants at the summit! We would like to invite everyone with the first wave to spawn in at 19:50z (10 minutes prior to event start) to gather everyone.
In addition, we’re pleased to announce @Team_DynamX will be conducting a flypast of VHHH 5 minutes prior to the first takeoff to kick off the event!
Without further ado, details of the event are attached below.
Time: November 17, 2018 8:00 PM
Some notes to accompany the ground plans:
If there is a discrepancy between the departure plan and gate assignments, the departure plan should be considered correct.
To ease controller workload, please yield to traffic approaching from the right at an intersection to prevent collisions.
To ease congestion and maximize throughput, please reduce runway dwell times by taking off in an expeditious manner.
For aircraft departing on the North Runway parked in stands with a “W”, “N”, or “D” prefix, please use Taxiway A when approaching 7L to allow for aircraft parked in “M”, “X”, and “L” stands to line up on Taxiway B. Please keep A1 and A2 clear to enable access for aircraft on both A and B.
For aircraft departing on the South Runway, please prioritize J to keep H clear for aircraft coming out of M stands. Use J2 to access the runway if you’re on J and J1 if you’re on H.
Please keep all taxiway intersections clear to prevent traffic build-up.
Please obey the push times to the best of your ability and clear the apron as quickly as possible to maximize throughout.
In-Air Procedures (Departures)
Please follow all controller directions to ensure the summit goes smoothly.
Once again, as we’re bursting at the seams, please do not push until 22 :45z to give priority to aircraft with assigned stands. Please follow the SIDs as outlined in the “In-Air Procedures” section. 12 stands are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Open stands for the summit are below:
Code C Stands:
Code B Stands
GA Business 12-14
Important - If your VA is highlighted in YELLOW in the departure plan, please spawn after 20:35Z to ensure that your stand is clear. Once again, if there is a discrepancy between the gate assignments and departure plan, the departure plan should be considered correct.
Gate assignments and departure plan are attached below once again:
Please let us know if there are any questions about the procedures, we’re here to resolve any issues you may have. VA owners, please begin to assign pilots if you have not done so already.
@Danman (myself) will be available on the day of the event from 1500z onwards for any urgent “day-of” inquiries from VA representatives. We hope to see everyone on Nov. 17!
