event - overload [Feedback] Heathrow Overload 2017

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Just wanted to write a big thank you to the event organisers and controllers yesterday.

 

The quality of control from all the London sectors and aerodrome controlelrs was really superb. Really proud to be part of this divison.

 

Although I had the good ol' TOGA P3d Crash as I experienced windshear on final approach which ended the flight prematurely, I had a fantastic time on the arrival (KLM10QM).

 

Thank you again to the excellent controllers.

Adding on to what Alex said, thank you to all the controllers who made last night an amazing night. I have never flown in a Heathrow Overload event and I will probably never again fly IN to Heathrow during an Overload event, purely because of the massive holding times :P

Well done all.

I did not fly out of Heathrow that night but I was observing for a couple of hours and all of you who controlled yesterday did an amazing job!

Here here! Well done to everyone who controlled and flew. Everyone did a great job on ADC, and it was great to see so many "new" Heathrow controllers taking part.

I didn't venture towards Heathrow but had full ATC from Belfast all the way to Sot'on and major kudos to Dan Parkin on South who helped me out with a procedure I don't think either of us had done for years! Top work boys and girls! :thumbsup:

Probably abit late, didn't realise there was a feedback area for the event!

Very good fun, well done to you all, it looked very stressful!

1hr 30mins late due to holds, but holding is good, get to experience all the different types of traffic!

 

Great job guys!

With love,

TUA427

That first hold over sea is very similar lane discipline at roundabouts near to where I live! Once someone get around, he cut me up and realised his error and moved back to his lane and wave apology at me! :angry:

I can see London controllers are extremely busy with all these hold slacks!

      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!

      You are invited to fly VFR or IFR in France when Bernard  will be taking his CPT on Bordeaux Centre in order to gain his C1 qualification.

      You can fly from anywhere to anywhere, you can plan to depart or arrive, or simply fly over towards other destinations... what we are willing is to darken the skies between 19 and 21:00 Zulu to challenge him.

      Here are some shots from Heathrow Overload. Thank you to all the controllers for an amazing event, even if I had to hold for about 1 hr!
