Passover OVERCONTROL 2015

Posted on March 8th, 2015 at 14:00.

VATIL’s Anuual Control Room Event is back!

As a long tradition, we in VATIL gather once and sometimes even twice a year in a designated facility where we build up a Control Room, just like in real life!

The control room generally includes a coupld of designated rooms full of ATC positions: First, the Control Tower itself, which holds all positions from GND up until TWR, including a large FSX view cinema style screen for the Tower’s view. The other rooms include LLBG APP and TMA positions, along with the position where Tel Aviv Control will be sitting. Usually every control room has a designated cockpit room equipped with all the nessesary hardware (Dual yokes, pedals, Throttles, Radio and Switch panels, MCP, FMC and much more) – Everything in one facility!

The best thing is, this Control Room will be operating for 3 constant days in Passover Vacation between April 5th thru April 7th from the morning till late evening!

During the event Constant ATC coverage will be offered during operation hours. Furthermore, enriching activities such as 1 on 1 ATC trainings, lectures for the public and more will be offered to those who are planning attend the facility where the event will take place.

Except that.. What does it mean for you pilots? Prepare your flying gear and come over and fly with us! You can also come over and visit us in the Control room itself and experience for yourselves the VATIL experience.

Happy Flying!
