Cross the pond 2019 – ?? CYYZ-EHAM ??

Join us in the bi-annually cross the pond event from Vatsim.

This time I had Chris as a FO with me and we took the 737 from Toronto to Amsterdam. During the 8hours and 9minutes block time we burned 16.1t of fuel. 

Enjoy a mixture of time lapse and real time videos from cockpit preparation until the night landing with different camera angles including Position reports on the NAT Track.

Vatsim – Cross the Pond Westbound 2018

On the last weekend the bi-annually cross the pond event on the Vatsim network was held.

I flew with an BBJ configuration from London Heathrow to Toronto.

The flighttime was 7 hours and 55 minutes. The block time 9 hours and 3 minutes. The most delay was conducted in London from pushback to taxi and than until takeoff.

But it was an amazing event. During the flight into Toronto also some holding had to be done due to the bad weather in Toronto and therefore extended separation on approach.

In the album here, you can see some pictures I have taken during the flight.

And a 2:30min timelapse video is available as well.

Vatsim Cross the pond event 2017

On Saturday 14th October the Cross the pond event was held again. This time, as usual in the autumn Eastbound.

I was participating with a flight from Toronto to Copenhagen as OS364.

The block time was 8 hours an 30 minutes. We lost about 45 minutes on ground due to heavy traffic.

Here you can some pictures from our flight.

A timelapse vide will come later this week.
