Summer Break 2024

Dear members and guests,
The sweltering heat and shining sun can surely only mean one thing; summer has arrived. This first semester has been chock full of obstacles, learning opportunities and growth, buoyed and supported by the feedback and contributions from both inside and outside of the department. And after a packed first half of 2024, what can be better to celebrate the pleasant weather and long days than a break?
In the interest of allowing our members to unwind, recover from the many busy events and return to them in full form, we are proud to announce our annual vACC Summer Break which will take place from the 1st of July to the 18th of August inclusive. Our plans for the end of June remain unchanged.
We have slated a strong return to the radar scopes on the 20th of August which will see our iconic "Zurich Night" franchise come back to those who miss it most. More details relevant to planned events will follow in due course.
Please find below some key dates for the break:
  • 25th June, last "Zurich Night" event,
  • 28th June, last event before the break ("Geneva One-By-One"),
  • 20th August, first event after the break ("Zurich Night").
Whilst some will be enjoying a much deserved holiday in the interim, the Administration Department will have to order its Piña Colada to go as it will be busy working on a number of enticing projects and unique events, hopefully catered to our members' notes and best conceived for an interesting and captivating second-half of the year. As usual, we welcome any and all feedback relative to our events and invite all members with suggestions and ideas to write us at administration(a); we will be more than happy to brainstorm.
But until our return, we would like to extend sincere thanks to our dedicated and active community for their support, coverage and patronage of our events, be it in the cockpit or in front of the radar scope. We hope to see you all in strong spirits and solid shape for our August return and wish you a relaxing and enjoyable summer!

Alpine Crossing: 12th August 2021
Geneva - One by One: 27th August 2021

This only means that are no events organised. There will still be ATC coverage at Switzerland, check out the bookings on on the right side.
