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!

11. ILS Flightsim Weekend Hergiswil

Every year, the Swiss Aviation Interest Group (ILS) organizes the Flightsim Weekend, which will take place on 14th and 15th November 2015 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 events on the radar screens. Additionally, we will 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 to the virtual flight simulation using VATSIM.

We look forward to seeing you!

New sectorfile / Charts Update / SOP Update

Dear all

Yesterday some bigger changes have been implemented. The Swiss Radar sectors (_CTR) experienced changes regarding sectorisation as well some stations have received new frequencies. WEF was 11.12.2014. 

As a result, the new sectorfile and updated documents have been released.

The files are:

- New sectorfile
- LSAS SOP
- LSZH Charts
- LSGG Charts
- LSZH SOP
- LSGG SOP
- LSAS Sector Allocation
- LSAS Quick Ref
- SID/STAR Quick Ref
- Trackmiles LSZH/LSGG

I would like to thank the OPS team, especially Jonas Kuster, Nicolas Ammann and Michael Kühne. You all have done a great job over the last months. Thank you for the great work on this huge update.

As well a big thank to GNG (Global Nav Generator) which created a great sectorfile. GNG will be our partner for future sectorfile updates. 

Regarding the sector file: Please do a complete clean installation as described in chapter 2 of the Installation GuideNote that we have not yet rolled out the update package (as nobody can make an update yet). Therefore the updates as described in chapters 3 and 4 are currently not available. Please wait until an update has been announced.

For questions or feedback please contact operation@vacc.ch

Have fun with the new files! 

Best regards
