The evenings are getting darker and darker, and Christmas is fast approaching, however before we start jetting off North to see Santa we wanted to bring you one last holiday by the sea. We're excited to announce our second event of November: the Liverpool - Palma de Mallorca City Pair! Whilst summer temperatures in Mallorca can peak at over 31 degrees, you certainly can't expect to be seeing temperatures anywhere near this halfway through November! You'll probably need that engine anti-ice as you transport your holidaymakers and stag/hen parties to and from the Balearic Island's Capital. Expect (typical) cloudy, rainy conditions at Liverpool, and challenging gusty winds at Palma. Naturally the highlight of the event will be the professional ATC provided by the Brits and the Spaniards - what could possibly go wrong?
This event is the perfect time to try out the new Liverpool scenery for P3D, or perhaps test out the new PMDG 737? Either way, we expect to see plenty of you joining us on the 17th of November, between 1700z-2000z!
Controllers please note this will be a rostered event, the expression of interest is here.

“Een vliegende vogel heeft altijd meer dan een zittende!”
A flying bird always has more than a sitting one
With this Dutch phrase we invite all fellow VATSIM pilots to the Amsterdam-Munich City Pair. On an area of 4500 ha every year more than 115 million passengers and more than 2 million tons of cargo are brought into the air and safely back to the ground by round about 100.000 people working on these two airports. These big numbers are operated on 1.413.105 sq.m. of runways.
Together with you we want to bring these numbers alive and make the fascination behind them noticeable.
All relevant stations will be manned from 1800z – 2130z between Amsterdam and Munich.
So, get your birds back on track!
All facts at a glance:
When? 16NOV19 – 1800 until 2130 UTC
Where? Amsterdam EHAM – Munich EDDM
