Come join the Dutch VACC and VATCAN to celebrate Tulips to Toronto, a trans-Atlantic long-haul party! On Saturday January 25th, between 11:00 and 14:00 UTC, we will have Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (EHAM) staffed to the gills to accommodate your departure to Toronto Pearson (CYYZ), where VATCAN will provide a full crew to sequence you on final. All along the route we will staff the en-route facilities to supply you with everything you’d expect from a long-haul flight. So bring your favourite long haul aircraft, your business jet, or whatever you want, and join us for 7+ hours of packed airspace and professional air traffic control.
Bookings will open at 19:00z on the 4th of January! A total of 90 slots will be available over the course of the departure window. During previous editions all slots sold out quickly, with a total of nearly 150 flights crossing the Atlantic, so be sure to secure your slot early at our booking website.
This event serves as a fantastic time to brush up on your Atlantic crossing skills and prepare for the bi-annual Cross the Pond. We hope you’ll join us on the 25th for this event, and look forward to seeing many of you there!
