As I said in the marketing update, I will be running more screenshot competitions. The theme of this competition is "A blast from the past" (Old/retro liveries to be specific). The winner of this competition will have their screenshot uploaded as the background for our Twitter. All entries must be emailed, sent to me on slack, or attached to a ticket by the 25th February. Good luck!
Thanks to Adam Turner for selecting the theme.

On Sunday, February 24th, the Dutch VACC will be organising a remarkable event at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol: a Surveillance Radar & Non-Precision Approach Night! The purpose of this event is to give pilots an opportunity to fly and practise something else than ordinary ILS-approaches.
We'll offer you a choice between SRA approaches on our main landing runway during which you are "talked down" by a controller giving you precise altitude and heading instructions. As an alternative, we also offer non-precision approaches including NDB, visual and circling approaches to the secondary landing runway. Are you up for the challenge? Join us between 18:30 and 21:00 UTC at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol!
Charts are available over here.
