VATSIM: Copenhagen RealTime April 2008
Copenhagen RealTime April 2008
We are delighted to welcome you to yet another RealTime event at Copenhagen. The event will take place on April 27th 16z-21z

What makes this event special?
On this evening we try to simulate a normal Sunday evening at Copenhagen. This means pilots flying the exact flights that you find in real life, and (hopefully) arriving on time.
In order to keep track of the traffic-flow you as the pilot must book your flight prior to the event from our event-page.
You can book more than one flight, so why not book the return flight while you are at it.
When booking you will get an arrival or departure time (a slot time) so you need to make it on time. Otherwise you will be put back in the queue :-)
If you would like to fly a non-scheduled flight please contact us beforehand so we can find an available slot time for you.
All flight-information is based on up-to-date real-world material from Copenhagen.
Traffic the Danish way!
Have you ever visited Copenhagen Airport on one of your flights? If so, you will be familiar with the tight layout of the airport allowing a very efficient flow of traffic in and out. If you haven't, it's about time! No long taxi routes - you will get your passengers to or from the gate fast and efficiently. For you as a pilot it means that you better be well-prepared when you push, as the taxi time can be very short, even under heavy traffic loads.
We have more than 10 controllers online to guide you to and from Copenhagen. ATC the Danish way is efficient and focused on getting you safe and fast to your destination. As a main hub in Scandinavia certain hours experience many arrivals and others many departures. However we normally execute this traffic without any holdings!
Last years statistics
If you want to know what you can expect, and what we hope to exceed, we have had an average of just around 200 flights at most of the latest events (We host this event 2 times a year). In the busy periods we kept a steady flow of 20-25 arrivals per hour (one every 2:30-3:00 minutes) This throughput was achieved without the need to use the inbound holds available! We hope YOU will help us exceed these levels this year.
