Tomorrow Vatsim UK will be hosting the SERTS Real Ops Nite. This an event that will be filled with online ATC [as it always is] and many online aircraft. If memory serves me correct a few months ago they had a similar ,slighlty smaller event and the virtual skies were alive with aircraft and ATC. Infact there were so many aircraft that on finals into Heathrow there were at least 12 aircraft in front of me and few behind me. Anyway let me put it this way, THIS IS AN EVENT NOT TO BE MISSED.

If my description didn't grab your attention, VATSIMs might. Here it is:

This Sunday, October 23, the first scheduled departure is 1700z and the last arrival is at 2230z, fly from/to The world busiest single runway airport:- London Gatwick, and two up and coming regional airports of Southampton and Bournemouth, pilots are dared to pick and choice their poison!

Full ATC will be providied by some of the best controllers in the United Kingdom, and pilots participation, dedication, co-operation and skill, can make this event "as real as it gets". There are flights avalible for major UK and European airlines, from British Airways, Easyjet, Ryanair, TAP, Adria, Estonian Air, Monarch, CSA, SAS, Maersk Air, Meridiana, Air France, Fly Be and many more, to and from destinations all over Europe and the Middle East. For Bookings visit:

I know this topic should be in Multiplayer section but alot of you don't go there and I want you guys/girls to get a taste of how fun online flying can be.

P.S please excuse some of the grammar and spelling.

I know the event doesn't have the nicest flights but hey you don't have to book. Just fly any airport aroung the UK tonight and you be apart of the event. For example, I'm not booking any flights. I'm simply going to go online at 1700 hrs GMT and file a flight plan from Gatwick to South Hampton. It's as easy as that.

I'm just trying to get some of you to fly online because the majority doesn't and I promise you, you don't know what you are missing.

Anyway I hope to see some of you online later. If I don't I might just film some of the action to show you later.

The thing is that I don't have the time to fly with my simulator right now. I will go to my pilot school in three weeks to start a physics course. After that I start with my training.
These days I'm busy studying the traffic laws to get my licence, so I can't use my simulator....

I wish you the best of luck at at your training school. I understand what you mean about not having the time to fly on the simulator. I haven't flown on it for at least three to four weeks now. So I'm a bit worried how I will handle a landing tonight. Anyway, once again, goodluck Agus.
