Out of interest, how many people actively search on Twitch for controllers who stream? I know you get bigger channels streaming London etc, I understand its more interesting but would you watch for example a Manchester Tower stream?
All feedback welcome!
Thanks in Advance

Anybody fancy joining me on a little jaunt to Heraklion (LGIR) on the sunny island of Crete? The Greeks are laying on some ATC this afternoon and it would be a shame to miss out on it. I was planning on departing EGGP around 12:30 UK time as ATC is booked, so making the return 'do-able' as it wouldn't be that late getting back to scouse land. I'll post a route in a bit if anybody shows an interest 🙂
It makes the approach a lot more fun when a little Greek Island has lots of planes heading towards it.

I sometimes fly dual cockpit on vatsim but I use X plane which uses a client in which I do not think it is possible to connect as an obs. Therefore, what are the best practices for dual cockpit in this way (someone suggested to me that a charactercould be out on the end of a callsign so that euroscope would filter out the other pilot, but I haven't found anything about this). Thanks.

There will be a 'Drop in Session' for any Pilots flying for Cross the Pond wishing to ask questions about their flight. If you can't think of any, then read our North Atlantic Oceanic Pilot Guide and see if you come up with any!
We will be available between 18:00 - 19:00z on our TeamSpeak Server.
See you there!

I just came across a question which for sure had been asked many times before.
I'am departing on an SID with Altitude Restrictions on the Chart and i got a "Climb FL070". Does that mean that i can climb to FL070 with or without the SID Restrictions?
That's what i found on the internet :
Is that still valid and does that also apply to Vatsim?
"Climb FL070" means i have to follow the restrictions. "Climb now FL070" means the Restrictions are cancelled.
