    VATSIM - Cross the Pond Eastbound 2018

    On Saturday 27th October 2018, VATSIM is excited to bring you the latest edition of Cross The Pond!

    Cross The Pond has been a bi-annual tradition on VATSIM for well over 10 years. The eastbound edition sees pilots depart a selection of airports in North America and fly transatlantic to European destinations. Full ATC, including Oceanic, is provided throughout. All our recent connection records have been broken during Cross The Pond, making it VATSIM's busiest regular event.

    Departure slots will be available between 1100z and 1500z from the following airports:

    • John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK/KJFK)
    • Logan International Airport (BOS/KBOS)
    • Denver International Airport (DEN/KDEN)*
    • Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ/CYYZ)
    • Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD/KIAD)

    * Departures slots from Denver will run from 1000z to 1300z due to the increased distance.

    We will be landing aircraft across the evening in Europe at the following airports:

    • Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS/EHAM)
    • Frankfurt Airport (FRA/EDDF)
    • Manchester Airport (MAN/EGCC)
    • Zurich Airport (ZRH/LSZH)

    We're excited to welcome a new airfield to this event, giving pilots opportunities to partake in this event in a new and hopefully enjoyable way. Over 500 slots will be made available, with bookings opening on Saturday 20th October at 1700z at the new Cross The Pond web site. While you're waiting, the site contains plenty of information, including FAQs, if you are new to this event, or if you need to brush up on your Oceanic procedures! You can also see the forum post here.

    We are looking forward to another enjoyable event and thank the partner airports, ACCs/ARTCCs and divisions for their hard work.

    See you in the skies!
