Runway to Holland
On Sunday, July 23rd, the Dutch VACC invites everyone to join Runway to Holland, a single runway operations event held at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Enjoy the view on final approach of departing aircraft getting ready for take off, and expect short lines at the holding point as you watch aircraft landing. This is not a view that's commonly seen at Schiphol Airport!

The airport will be fully staffed from 17:30 till 20:00 UTC. All kinds of traffic are welcome. Come and experience our extensive airport like never before!

The Expedition: Dubai to Amsterdam
The Emirates VACC and Dutch VACC are excited to announce Dubai to Amsterdam: The Expedition Series on Saturday, the 5th of August.

Two magnificent FlyTampa-airport sceneries complete the experience.

Pilots shall depart Dubai (OMDB) between 11:00 and 14:00 UTC so that they will be arriving at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol between 17:30 and 21:30 UTC. A pilot booking system is in place: pilots with a booked slot have priority upon departure, but anyone is welcome to show up and participate!

AIRAC 1707 amendment
AIRAC 1707, effective from the 22nd of June, has imposed some changes to the Standard Instrument Departures (SIDs) out of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (EHAM). LEKKO SIDs have been replaced by KUDAD SIDs. LUNIX SIDs have been replaced by RENDI SIDs.

Flights departing to the south that previously used LEKKO as the first waypoint in their flight plans, shall now use WOODY as their exit point instead. Also the LAMSO 1A STAR into Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has changed into the LAMSO 2A STAR. Pilots are encouraged to update their AIRAC navigation databases to AIRAC 1707 or newer.
