  1. Today
  2. Luke, what kind of beer are we talking?As I'm now interested haha?
  3. Do controllers controlling for this event also get put into the prize giveaway? Surely it’s only fair? I also accept payment in the form of beer. (Warm flat stuff, not that continental tripe)
  4. Yesterday
  5. Wow Mike Dean there's a blast from the past!
  6. Of course, control at all the other airfields in the SW and French Islands are available all weekend for anyone else who wants to play. I *think* this our 10th year of this event although it has its real roots in @Mike Dean's parents hotel not long after the war.
  7. This is still the case unfortunately, however most pilots on VATSIM don't "log on" to the code anyway (at least not in my experience).

    Travelling that day, sorry
  10. When VSMR first came out, if pilots tried to login to the ATC channel it didn't work. All you had to do was send a PDC request from Hoppies and it went through, unless VSMRs code has now been changed to allow the log on.
  11. It depends what the controller has set their code to. We should probably start a bit of a convention, so as not to confuse pilots or each other! If I’m offering it on Bandbox, I’ll enter the following into my ATIS: ” Hoppie PDC/CPDLC Avilable Logon “EGTT”
  12. Last week
  13. Thanks for the prompt reply. Would I/pilots enter EGPX/EGTT as that's the FIR, or SCO/LON as that's what I'm logged on as?
  14. Used this to set it up for Bandbox earlier this morning - thanks for the guide!
  15. Yep - the aircraft enters the "logon code" so to speak so instead of EGPH they would just enter EGPX into their FMC. George
  16. Many thanks for the step-by-step guide @George Peppard. The thread title definitely refers to me: 1st time beginner and just fancied seeing what all the hype was about. Whilst I was unsuccessful with it this evening, I think I know where I went wrong so will try again next time. Quick Q, will this also work for area controllers, ie, if an identifier of EGPX instead of EGPH was inserted, would PDC be available for all fields within the PX FIR? Cheers, Stu
  17. All, On Saturday 20th April, projectFLY will be holding a giveaway competition. To enter, their members must fly from either Manchester, Liverpool or Bristol to either Ibiza, Majorca or Menorca. They must depart at or after 12:00z and arrive at or before 21:00z. Any supporting ATC would be great, they are expecting a large interest in this from their members. More info can be found here. Thanks Loui

    @Jack Limb
  20. We're pleased to announce that we've teamed up with VACCHUN to bring you "Feeling Hungary", join us on the 4th May to fly between London and Budapest. We are providing 5 hours of ATC for those that would like to operate a full rotation. There will be full ATC at both airports, and most likely supporting control from Belux VACC and Vatsim Germany. All traffic is welcome and it should be nice to see Heathrow and Europe with coverage on a Saturday morning. Heathrow is usually busy on Saturday mornings so this is a good opportunity to staff it and pair up with a European destination! Routes will be posted closer to the event time. https://chartfox.org/egll **Controllers please note this is a rostered event - CTS bookings made will not be valid** The expression of interest will follow in the week

    Congratulations everyone!
  23. @Gary Oliver @Andrew Wilson One of the reasons I wrote this in the first place was so that I could request PDC myself! 😉 Hopefully it gets adopted by more and more controllers going forward.
  24. The RG Frankfurt and VACC Switzerland proudly invite you to beautiful city shuttle between Frankfurt and Zurich. This City Shuttle starts at 1600z and ends at 2100z on 20th April 2019. You can expect a nice short flight with professional ATC service and while approaching Zurich a nice view of Swiss mountains. We are looking forward to seeing you on online! When? 20th April 2019 – from 1600z until 2100z Where? Zurich LSZH – Frankfurt EDDF Charts EDDF Charts LSZH
  25. Brilliant work George, now FSL have made Hoppie a lot more popular I’m excited to see many more controllers to interact with via ACARS.
  26. South West UK based VA Severnair, in collaboration with VATSIM UK, are once again proud to present "South West Overload". Over the weekend of 17th - 19th May, ATC services at Bristol, Cardiff, Jersey and Newquay will be coming live from a conference room in Weston-Super-Mare providing a seamless service to all flying to, from and over the South West of the UK. For this event, as with previous years, all controlling at these four airfields will only be conducted from the event itself by the Overload Event team only. We look forward to seeing you on our scopes!
  27. If you still wanted to connect, I have it on relatively good authority that "non-primary" stations would use Z + last 2 letters of their ICAO + first letter of position. For example, EGKK_TWR may use ZKKT if EGKK was already taken. There's not really much point though...
