It's time for another classic!
This event shouldn't need much introduction, I've been told it's ran for years (certainly as long as I've been around) but for those of you who haven't heard of the Channel Islands Christmas Shopper I'll give a brief synopsis:
We'll be staffing up the Channel Islands airports, namely Jersey EGJJ, Guernsey EGJB, and Alderney EGJA from 1900z to 2130z this Friday. You can expect full ATC at each of these aerodromes during the event. For those of you wondering why it's called a "Christmas Shopper", I'm afraid I have no clue, however I do know that this event is always great fun for all, whether flying or controlling. At the very least, it should get you in the Christmas spirit!
Controllers please note that this will be a rostered event, with an expression of interest appearing soon.

On Saturday 14 December from 17-23z VATSIM-Scandinavia invites you for this year's edition of Fly and See Santa. Fly into either Rovaniemi (EFRO), Tromsø (ENTC) and Kiruna (ESNQ).
Since this event attracts a fair amount of pilots we highly recommend you to bring a lot of holding fuel. Don't forget your favorite bevarage and candy onboard since it will most likely be a long night for you.
Due to the excess traffic on some airways you might get rerouted to optimise the traffic flow. Make sure you are familiar to reprogram your aircraft accordingly.
Visit our Santa Web for pilot briefing, routes, charts and scenery suggestion to make your visit to the north as enjoyable as possible.
VATSIM-Scandinavia hope you will enjoy this year's Fly and See Santa.
