16 December from 17-23z it's time to visit Santa Claus again, as usual Vatsim-Scandinavia will staff Rovaniemi (EFRO), Luleå (ESPA) and Tromsø (ENTC) throughout the evening.

Since this event attracts a fair amount of pilots we highly recommend you to bring a lot of holding fuel. 

Make sure you DO NOT take advantage of the Free Route Airspace, DO NOT file any DCT routings. Due to the excess traffic on some airways you might get rerouted to optimise the traffic flow. Make sure you are familiar to reprogram your aircraft accordingly.

Don't forget your favorite bevarage and candy onboard since it will most likely be a long night for you.

Visit our Santa Web for pilot briefing, charts and scenery suggestion to make your visit to the north as enjoyable as possible.

Vatsim-Scandinavia hope you will enjoy this year's Fly and See Santa.

Merry Christmas!

We are finally in December and behind the first window of the advent calendar we can already see how Santa is training Rudolph and friends again for the special night. Who knows, maybe we can get a glimpse of Santa's reindeer doing flights in the night sky over Rovaniemi during Fly And See Santa. And of course our pilots don't need to worry for reindeer strikes. Santa told me that the RCAS (Reindeer Collision Avoidance System) makes sure no reindeer will get on the path of a commercial plane even in as busy airspace as Rovaniemi during this magical event. How else do you think Santa is able to navigate across the globe in the middle of busiest travel season of the year?

If you haven't already, it's time to book this event on your calendars!
