Heavy Sand storm hitting OTHH, Minimal Visibility, we should see some tough landings.
Literally just took off from JFK heading towards OTHH :)
@Haspro same here in Abu Dhabi (OMAA)! I can hear the wind from my bedroom, haha!
And apparently, it’s not going to be better in a few hours: http://m.gulfnews.com/news/uae/weather/strong-58km-h-winds-light-rainfall-to-hit-uae-1.2173373 :o
wow! its not that windy here but visibility is minimal
Can someone be ATC at KLAS please? 🤔
Just because you asked… No
Ok. Wanna go! Jk. I don’t think that’s what IFATC wants you to be lol
@AsorbMC I departed KLAS about 1hr 17min ago and there was IFATC. IFATC probably won’t be at KLAS again today. Look for other airports to fly out of manned by IFATC. I’m sure there are some scenic options! ;)
IFATC controllers partake in controlling voluntarily. They have lives to pursue outside of IF as well. And it wouldn’t make sense to ask a controller to open up an airport in my opinion
It’s all worked out. No big deal. 😀
I’m controlling YBHM now. A beautiful airport. No accepting anything larger than 737-800 or A320. Q400 recommended.
YBHM - YBBN (Q400 QantasLink)
Scenic flight around.

EDIT: CLOSING IN AN HOUR! Come and fly a short hop mate!
EDIT2: closed <3
I know EDDF was controlled last week, but is there any chance it will be revived this Sunday? I was gonna fly there on Saturday but I was on a violation cooldown (my first one in a LOOOONG time). I’ll probably be rolling in around 10-11Z tomorrow regardless.
I imagine it will be open at some point tomorrow
Anyone know if KPIT will be open on sunday?
Not asking just curious if anyone had previous plans, no one needs to go there just becuais of that though
No one knows. It’s the choice of the individual controllers to decide that.
Since it’s gonna be transatlantic controlling tomorrow, I’d doubt it. Possibly ask next time they do just northeast US controlling.
There are a few trans atlantic flights, WOW to reychivic, Condor to frankfurt, Quatar cargo to Luxembourg, Delta to paris…
