New Charts for LSGG and LSZA

Since 13. September 2018, the runway in Geneva (LSGG) is re-named 04/22 due to change of variation. Because a lot of virtual pilots nowadays use regular navigation database updates, this might lead to some disagreements until the sceneries have been updated. Our charts are already updated to show the new runway designators and changed headings.

Additionally, in preparation for the update of the Lugano scenery from FlyLogic, all charts for Lugano (LSZA) have been revised completely. Our documentation is now again in line with the status in real life.

Please visit our airport section to download the latest charts. We also provide zip packages per airport.

14. ILS Flightsim Weekend Hergiswil

Die Interessengemeinschaft Luftfahrt Schweiz (ILS) organisiert das jährliche Flightsim Weekend, welches am 10. und 11. November 2018 in Hergiswil (NW) stattfindet. Das direkt am Vierwaldstättersee gelegene Seehotel Pilatus bietet eine hervorragende Möglichkeit, um Fans und Kollegen aus der Schweizer und internationalen Flugsimulations-Szene zu treffen. Diverse Aussteller werden vor Ort sein und einen interessanten Einblick in die Welt der virtuellen Aviatik bieten. Der Eintritt ist frei!

Auch die vACC Schweiz nimmt an diesem Event teil und wird einen detaillierten Einblick in den Aufgabenbereich der virtuellen Fluglotsen (ATCO) geben. Wir erklären vor Ort wie der virtuelle Schweizer Luftraum überwacht wird und wie die Piloten sicher an ihr Ziel geleitet werden. Interessierte dürfen gerne auf den Frequenzen mithören, um so dem Geschehen auf den Radarschirmen besser folgen zu können. Zudem stehen wir gerne für jegliche Fragen rund um das Thema Online-Fliegen zur Verfügung. Während diesen beiden Tagen werden wir ATC Service an verschiedenen Schweizer Flughäfen anbieten.

Ausserdem können verschieden Vorträge besucht werden. Das genau Programm wird zeitig bekannt gegeben.

Wir freuen uns auf zahlreiche Besucher!

13. ILS Flightsim Weekend Hergiswil

Every year, the Swiss Aviation Interest Group (ILS) organizes the Flightsim Weekend, which will take place on 11th and 12th November 2017 in Hergiswil (Canton Nidwalden). The location at Seehotel Pilatus near the Lake of Lucerne offers a good opportunity to meet both fans and colleagues of the Swiss and international flight simulation scene. Various exhibitors will also be on site, offering an interesting view into the world of virtual aviation. Admission is free!

vACC Switzerland will also partake in this event and will offer in-depth insights into the task area of virtual air traffic controllers. We will explain how the virtual Swiss airspace is being monitored and how pilots are being guided to their destinations. Interested persons can listen in on the frequencies, which makes it easier to follow the traffic on the radar screens. We will also be available to answer any question about flying online. During the two days of the event, we also will provide ATC Services at various Swiss airports.

Additionally, there will be some presentations about optimizing of computer system for simulation purposes and also an introduction about flying and controlling online using VATSIM.

We look forward to seeing you!
