VATSIM UK is happy to invite you back to our staff up of Gatwick!
Home to some of Europe's largest airlines, including British Airways, easyJet, Ryanair, TUI, Virgin, and Norwegian - there's something for everyone. Whether you'll be doing a 30 minute hop to Jersey or an 8 hour flight from the Caribbean, you can expect nothing but the best from our air traffic controllers. Expect plenty of land-after clearances and be hard on the brakes, as Gatwick's only runway is pushed to capacity. The event will take place from 1700-2000z every Wednesday, apart from the last Wednesday of each month, and it always proves to be a hit with pilots and ATC alike! We hope to see plenty of you joining us on the localiser.
Controllers please note that these will be rostered events, the roster for the 1st of July can be found here.

Just wanted to write a big thank you to the event organisers and controllers yesterday.
The quality of control from all the London sectors and aerodrome controlelrs was really superb. Really proud to be part of this divison.
Although I had the good ol' TOGA P3d Crash as I experienced windshear on final approach which ended the flight prematurely, I had a fantastic time on the arrival (KLM10QM).
Thank you again to the excellent controllers.
