First Wings Oceanic Operations Sunday, September 11th, 2022 1500-2200z
This is a special First Wings edition! With Cross The Pond around the corner, an Oceanic First Wings flight will be held, aimed at pilots with no oceanic flying experience.

Scandinavian and Canadian controllers are teaming up, staffing Keflavík (BIKF), Halifax (CYHZ), and the Atlantic in-between, on Sunday 11th September. Depart Iceland between 15 and 18 UTC, and hop over the Atlantic towards Canada.

**Please note this is a one-directional flight. Departures will only be from Keflavík, and will run only until 18 UTC. Please book a slot and be ready to depart at the slot time. Pilots without slots can, and will, be delayed.

Pilots participating in this edition are expected to have a base knowledge of flying with ATC, and to read the provided Oceanic procedures material.

Both before and during the event experienced and patient controllers and pilots will be on the VATSIM Discord to help answer any questions you have. You may join the discord through https://community.vatsim.net/.

For pilots new and inexperienced to the network, please consider flying the US - Canada flight on Saturday the 10th instead.

Moncton Monday Every Monday Night Starting at 22h00z
Moncton Monday is VATCAN’s longest running weekly event, providing full-coverage ATC every Monday night, beginning at 22h00z, encompassing over six terminal controlled airports, and dozens of smaller fields.

Each Monday, airports including Halifax (CYHZ), Moncton (CYQM), St. John’s (CYYT), and Gander (CYQX), will be staffed from top to bottom, in a fun and relaxed Monday night.

All kinds of traffic, whether VFR or IFR, airplane or helicopter, are welcome and pilots of all skill levels are invited.

Come and fly our friendly skies!

June 20, 2022 New FSS Positions

As we introduce the FSS position to CYDF, CYYG and CYSJ in the CZQM/CZQX FIR, The FIR Staff wants pilots to know the minimum expectation from pilots operating within the FSS Control Zone (CZ). There are some major differences when operating within the MF Class E CZ than a Class D/C Controlled zone so please ensure you know what is expected. It is also important to understand which aircraft has the right of way.

New FSS callsigns/positions:
CYDF_F_TWR - Deer Lake Radio
CYYG_F_TWR - Charlettown Radio
CYSJ_F_TWR - Saint John Radio

Full FSS SOP can be found here.

Happy Flying!
