Rotterdam World Port
On Saturday, the 28th of January, the Dutch VACC will be hosting Rotterdam World Port, a real operations & fly-in event at Rotterdam The Hague Airport (EHRD). Pilots are encouraged to book a real world operated flight through our booking system. They will receive a briefing with a flightplan included. There is no specific arrival or departure time for booked flights - just feel free to pop up or drop by whenever you like!

Rotterdam The Hague is the 3rd largest airport in the Netherlands. It is extensively used by Transavia which offers scheduled and charter flights to a great number of European destinations. The airport is also regularly visited by VFR flights and bizzjets. We'll be open between 18:30 and 21:30 UTC. Feel free to drop by on a commercial, bizzjet or VFR-flight!
The Expedition: Amsterdam to Dubai
The Emirates VACC and Dutch VACC are very excited to announce Amsterdam to Dubai: The Expedition Series on Sunday, the 29th of January. During this unique opportunity, pilots will be able to fly between two of the most popular airports on VATSIM and enjoy full ATC staffing from gate to gate. Two magnificent FlyTampa-airport sceneries complete the experience.

Pilots shall depart Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (EHAM) between 11:00 and 13:00 UTC so that they will be arriving into Dubai between 17:00 and 21:00 UTC. A pilot booking system is in place: pilots with a booked slot have priority upon departure over non-slotted flights, but anyone is welcome to show up and participate!

SRA & Non-Precision Approach Night
On Sunday, February 12th, the Dutch VACC will be organising a remarkable event at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol: a Surveillance Radar & Non-Precision Approach Night! The purpose of this event is to give pilots an opportunity to fly and practise something else than ordinary ILS-approaches.

We'll offer you a choice between SRA approaches on our main landing runway during which you are "talked down" by a controller giving you precise altitude and heading instructions. As an alternative, we also offer non-precision approaches including VOR, NDB, visual and circling approaches to the secondary landing runway. Are you up for the challenge? Join us between 18:30 and 21:00 UTC at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol!
