Zurich – Amsterdam CityPair



Start: Sun, 24th September 23 1730 UTC
End: Sun, 24th September 23 2000 UTC


High traffic, picturesque views, iconic airports, challenging procedures, busy airspaces… These are all the aspects that truly signify a unique event. Well, when vACC Switzerland and the Dutch vACC were thinking of collaborating once more, we came up with one question; why not combine all of these qualities into a landmark occasion to remember?

The answer to this question is our latest event; join us for a “Zurich – Amsterdam CityPair” on the 24th of September from 17:30z and 20:00z that is sure to showcase some of the best Europe has to offer! Enjoy the transition from soft sloping tulip fields to daunting towering Edelweiss-lined mountains on this route that illustrates the rich variety of our landscapes. A fan of dairy delicacies? Sample some of the renowned cheeses at either end of your route for a delectable inflight service. But don’t get too spellbound by the breathtaking views or signature snacks; traffic is bound to be high so be sure to keep your ears peeled and charts at hand for this intense and popular event that is sure to keep even tenured pilots on edge.

We are ready to provide you with expert ATC service into, out of and above some of the densest and busiest airspaces on the network – are you up for the challenge?

Geneva – One by One



Start: Fri, 29th September 23 1800 UTC
End: Fri, 29th September 23 2000 UTC


Looking for the perfect mix of high traffic and a challenging airport? Last Friday night of the month? Put your kids to bed or place them in the right seat and start your engines, as vACC Switzerland hosts a new edition of one of its most popular events at Geneva International Airport (LSGG). Let us prove to you that size is less important than skill; with a single concrete runway, our controllers face the challenge of getting the timing just right in order to clear you to land just seconds after departing traffic’s gear has left the ground. Needless to say, expect late landing clearances.

Waiting at the holding point? Get ready to line up behind landing traffic or perform a rolling takeoff, as there is bound to be traffic on short final waiting for that late call from Tower. 

We are fully staffed and ready to get you in and out safely, one by one. We are up to the challenge, are you? If so, look out for the chain of landing lights on the ILS in Geneva, every last Friday of the month from 18:00z to 20:00z.

Zurich Night



Start: Tue, 3rd October 23 1800 UTC
End: Tue, 3rd October 23 2000 UTC


Welcome to the Zurich Night, the weekly onlineday of Switzerlands major airport! Every Tuesday from 1800z to 2000z, expect full staffing, professional and friendly ATC service and plenty of traffic.

Enjoy one of total 4 IFR approaches or get yourself a spot as a small VFR aircraft between the big birds. VFR flights are still performed regularly despite the airport's size. This makes flying VFR to/from Zurich extremely interesting, but it's also a huge challenge which requires careful preparation. A lot of small airfields in the vicinity offer numerous possibilities for short VFR hops.

Zurich is a unique airport with a lot of operational restrictions due to noise abatement and its challenging layout. We know it by heart and love this airport with all its rough edges. And we are sure you gonna love it as well!

Almost every Tuesday we will also staff Geneva (LSGG) and Basel (LFSB) for you. Check out the bookings on vacc.ch.

Join our frequencies every Tuesday evening and enjoy!
