  6. Oh I do like to fly beside the seaside... We're moving down to the South East as we bring our next VATSIM UK event to Southend! With seven miles of beach to enjoy and the longest pleasure pier in the world, bring yourself and your passengers to the Thames Estuary as we return for the first time in nearly two and a half years. So get those shorts, buckets and spades (and knotted handkerchief hats for the older generation!) packed and join us for Summer By The Sea! **Controllers please note this will be a rostered event. A link to the Expression of Interest topic will appear here when posted**
  7. As part of our RAF100 celebrations, join Knight Air on a flight from RAF Scampton to Dortmund via the dams of Moehne, Eder, and Sorpe in the Douglas DC3. The route flown will be similar to that flown by 617 Squadron in the spring of 1943 during the infamous "Dambuster Raids". Please note that this is a civilian flight and, therefore, military operations will not be permitted as per the standard T&C's of VATSim. Those wishing to conduct a low level overflight of the dams for photographic purposes must obtain permission from the duty controller. A full pack including the DC3, dams scenery (and RAF Scampton for those without the payware UK2000 addon), full PDF flight plan, and FSX/P3D .pln file is available from the tours page (under the operations tab) at our website: knightair.co.uk You do not need to be a registered member of Knight Air to access this page. Knight Air welcomes younger users within its membership and actively encourages participation. However, you must be over 13 years old to take part in online activities with Vatsim. Knight Air will accept membership applications from age 12 for members of the RAF Air Training Corps (or similar). Communication with the Officer in Charge of the Squadron/Flight will be required.

    event - overload [4th-5th August 2018 10:00Z - 20:00Z] VATSIM UK Live! 2018

    Another fantastic year, great to see new faces! Thanks to all of the organisers for pulling it together again, sterling job! Until next year.
  10. It's time to explore the Dutch regional airports! On Saturday, August 11th we're organising Dutch Regional Fly-In, an event that puts Rotterdam The Hague, Groningen Eelde, Eindhoven and Maastricht-Aachen Airport in the spotlights!The Dutch regional airports are often under exposed, despite offering a vast number of scheduled- and charter flights to the farthest corners of Europe. Or step in your favourite single engine for a VFR cross country flight over the Netherlands. Whatever you decide, we'll be open from 17:30 till 20:00 UTC. Looking forward to seeing you on August 11th!
