A nor’easter is a strong wind that travels along the east coast of the United States. This storm gets its name from it unique wind pattern (both the wind and the travel pattern come from the North East), which is sure to provide viewers with a thrilling (and potentially wet) time.
Come watch this exciting hurricane like storm, before it goes away for the season. The VATSIM (or for the more formal amongst us: Virtual Air Traffic Simulation Network), is both proud and honored to be hosting this spectacular event. This is one storm you do not want to miss, and New York does not want to either!
New York is coming together with the Virtual Air Traffic Simulation Network to pile aircraft into the most complex airspace the world has ever seen. The initial fly-in will test how skillful a pilot actually is. You do not want to miss this show of courage, and skill as the pilots take to the air! This is an important event so make sure you are fully prepared.
It is going to be a long day and there is high speculation of traffic delays so remember these useful tips to make the most of your time: arrive early, car pool with a friend, or watch from a nearby window. Also be prepared for high paced transmissions, and more fun you have had in a long time! Come and bring the storm to New York's Newark, La Guardia, and Kennedy airports. Come watch the event, or even sign up as a pilot, if you dare.
Remember, the sky’s the limit! More information and pilot sign up can be found at www.nyartcc.org
