Have you ever...
...dreamed of ATC all day long?
...wished to have controllers guiding you on early morning approaches while the sun is rising?
...wanted to fly a four leg rotation with guaranteed service on your departure and arrival?
...hoped to get a whole day of ATC as real as it gets?
We make it happen! Zurich Airport will be open on September 28th during the real operating hours!
Be the first one to touch down as IFR-traffic on runway 34 at 0605 local time. Long haul inbounds arriving within the first hour will enjoy iStream tactical steering to guarantee an optimum approach sequence. If early, join the holding until we are allowed to let you approach the airport.
As VFR traffic, explore the beautiful mountaineous Swiss landscape just minutes south of Zurich. Fly to Samedan for a delicious nut cake at the highest airliner airport in Europe and enjoy the breathtaking view of the alps. When returning, be prepared to get close to the big birds! Zurich still handles both, VFR and IFR traffic, unlike other European majors.
Zurich is a unique airport with a lot of operational restrictions due to noise abatement and its challenging layout. We know it by heart and love this airport with all its rough edges.
Be part of the experience and let Zurich come to life for a whole day on September 28th from 0400 to 2130z!

On Saturday, August 31st, 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 17:30 and 20:00 UTC at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol! Charts are available over .
