Thunder in the Desert 2016

Post by George Bowman SWVA4 » Fri Feb 12, 2016 11:32 am

Greetings Virtual Airline Event Staff,

On Saturday, April 9th, join the Albuquerque Air Route Traffic Control
Center as we present Thunder In The Desert. We will be featuring our
major Air Force bases, including the Albuquerque International Airport
[Kirtland Air Force Base, KABQ], Luke Air Force Base [KLUF], Cannon Air
Force Base [KCVS], Davis-Monthan Air Force Base [KDMA], and Holloman Air
Force Base [White Sands, KHMN]. Bring your fighters, your bombers, your
helicopters, and your tankers. Come fly a screaming overhead maneuver,
depart on an unrestricted climb at full afterburner, fly a TACAN
approach, a HI-ILS, request activation of an MOA, participate in live
fire exercises in one of our many Restricted Areas, accept MARSA and
participate in aerial re-fueling on an active AR Track.

It is important to note that while anyone may fly military aircraft, per
VATSIM Policy [VAA & VSO PPM 05/2015 Section 1.7] only members of an
approved VSOA will be allowed to participate in special operations.
Pilots flying military or special operations aircraft while not a member
of an approved VSOA will be restricted to Civil Procedures. Civilian
general aviation and commercial carrier traffic always welcome!

The event will take place from 2100z-0100z [1400P, 1500M, 1600C, 1700E].
I am writing to invite your virtual airline to participate with as many
pilots as you can throw at us. Virtual airline traffic is requested for
fly into/out of KABQ.

If you have any questions or need further information, please email me

We look forward to seeing you there!
