Online Challenge Day

Pyrénées overload

Here are the details for the Online Challenge Day, on May 24th, 2022:

 The challenge

Pyrénées is a nice place, is it not?

For this evening, come and give our ATCs a hard time! Has it ever occurred to you that the arrival procedures are the same in Tarbes and Pau?

We invite you to fly to Tarbes (LFBT) or to Pau (LFBP), and to overcrowd Pyrénées TMAs. Be careful, the mountains are close... try not to hit them with your wings!


Don't forget that you can get any required chart from the SIA website, either in the AIP section for IFR flights or Flight Preparation section for VAC


IVAO France compiles most of regional and airport sceneries within a list, regularly updated and available from the IVAO France website, under the Pilot section.


The IVAO booking system is still out of service. Do not hesitate to contact FIR staff if you are interested in controlling during this challenge!
