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. Total there
are more than 400 flights to choose from! All flight-information is based on up-to-date
real-world material. 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 :-)
Copenhagen + 4 regional airports
This time we have added 4 additional regional airports to the booking system.
All are located about half an hour from Copenhagen giving you the option to fly short
and hectic flights. The four airports are Billund (EKBI), Århus (EKAH),
Aalborg (EKYT) and Bornholm (EKRN) and they are all included in the
bookignsystem. If you have a request for a special flight or an unscheuled flight
let us know! We are very open towards flight requests.
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.

Hope to see you in the Danish airspace on the 26th. :-)
