Organized by New York ARTCC & Dutch VACC

New York ARTCC and the Dutch VACC are thrilled to bring you the JFK-AMS Crossfire. On Saturday August 22nd, between 12:30 and 15:00 UTC, we will have New York John F. Kennedy (KJFK) staffed to the gills to accommodate your departure to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (EHAM), where we will provide a full crew to sequence you on final. All along the route we will staff the en-route facilities to supply you with everything you’d expect from a long-haul flight.

Bookings will go live at 18:00z on August 1st at our booking system. A total of 60 slots will be up for grabs over the course of the departure window, providing you with all the necessary information you will need on the day of your flight. Be sure to get your slot as soon as possible, since they will go quickly!

This event serves as a fantastic time to brush up on your Atlantic crossing skills and prepare for the bi-annual Cross the Pond. We hope you’ll join us on the 22nd for this event, and look forward to seeing many of you there! Whether you’ll be joining us with an established simulator or the by then just released Microsoft Flight Simulator, we’ll make sure it’s going to be a one of a kind event!
