In a post through their social network profiles, VATSIM has officially announced the opening of slot bookings for this year’s Cross the Pond Westbound event. Being the biggest event on the network, the anticipation from the community is really big.
The slot booking can be done through the event’s dedicated website. Participants will be selected randomly. The event promises to offer 200 controllers, 50 route options, and 12 hours of total air traffic control coverage.
If you wish to fly in the event without having a slot booked, it is not recommended as you will probably experience big delays.
If you want to learn more about the departure and arrival airports, it is highly recommended to read through our previous article on the topic here. If you’re new to VATSIM, we made a VATSIM Guide that can answer some of your questions about flying on the network.
