Announcing, Friday Night Flights FNO 07FEB19

 

In world where, you are the captain… where frames are your enemy, weather dictates your flightpath and the flight levels are not the quiet oasis you once knew them to be.

Two, ARTCC’s stand together… united in their quest for the ultimate symphony of planes and controllers alike.

In their quest they will discover what it means to re-route an aircraft to its destination, and how ground delays will become their ultimate enemy.

Please join us, for the first time this decade, Oakland ARTCC and Los Angeles ARTCC combine their forces to tackle delays, intercept localizers and launch you off the 1s before an A380 lands on the 28s.

This momentous occasion is not one to miss, so be sure to book your calendars and have your preflight done.

Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen, its time again to start your engines for another TRIPLE ARTCC FNO event.
That’s right, we are joining forces once again to show VATSIM what the west coast is made of.
ZLC, ZSE, and ZOA together invite you for a night of full staffing (top to bottom) and with options galore when it comes to destinations.

We have chosen to fully staff some of the biggest (and busiest) airports in our respective regions.
Choose between SLC, SFO, and SEA. We suggest flying between these fields, although we welcome all levels of traffic from all directions and if you decide to fly VFR come and test our controllers.
Our last event with ZLA was excellent and allowed us to refine our procedures, and we are building on that to try and make everything run even smoother. 

Date: 14th September 
Time: 5PM-9PM PDT 2359-0400z

Featured Airports 
KSLC – Salt Lake City Airport
KSEA – Seattle Tacoma Airport
