12. ILS Flightsim Weekend Hergiswil

Every year, the Swiss Aviation Interest Group (ILS) organizes the Flightsim Weekend, which will take place on 19th and 20th November 2016 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!

DVOR HOC decommissioned, ALBIX SIDs withdrawn

AIRAC 1609 (WEF 18.08.2016) introduced some major changes.

The Doppler VOR part of HOC (Hochwald) has been decommissioned. HOC is now a DME only. As a result, all HOC SID from Basel (LFBS) and the HOC 2Z STAR from Zurich (LSZH) have been withdrawn.

All ALBIX SIDs except ALBIX1C departure (RWY 10) from Zurich (LSZH) have been withdrawn and are no longer available.

Pilots using older NAV data and asking for one of those procedures shall be informed that they are no longer valid.

The charts in question have been updated. For controllers, revised Quick Reference documents and SOP are available. Please brief yourself with them before your next session and make sure you use the latest sector file.

New Charts for LSZH/LSGG

Dear Pilots and Controllers

We just made a series of updated charts for Zurich (LSZH) and Geneva (LSGG) available on our homepage. They cover the recent real life updates and so include changes in magnetic variation as well SID updates for DEGES and ZUE departures from Zurich and DEPUL departures from Geneva. Small changes have been made on the layout to increase readability and clearness and help you to find the necessary information easier.

According real life, transitions for runway 28 and 34 in Zurich are now also part of the chart portfolio and implemented in the sector file. In return, procedures for departures via SONGI and GERSA have been removed from our charts section and are suspended until further notice. Pilots shall file alternate routes according the recommendation in the new document provided for this purpose. In addition, the charts for Zurich have undergone a change in order and structure and comply now with ICAO recommendations. This makes it easier to find the required chart. The logic is as follows:
- Arrivals: Arrival Area > STAR > APP > GND
- Departures: GND > SID > Departure Area
- Inside each Group: [1.] RNAV 1  >  [2.] RNAV 5  >  [3.] NON-RNAV (prefered use in the priority given)

For controllers, SID/STAR and LSAS Quick Reference documents are available with the recent updates, too. Please check the GNG homepage for the current sector file and report any issues or remarks in the forum. Be also informed that Euroscope V3.2a(r6) is available since 1 December. This version includes some fixes for functionalities which have been disabled/were broken accidentially with the initial V3.2 release.

If you have any questions, the Ops department is available via the forum or mail.

Enjoy the new documents!
