Can I fly from/to BIRK with my 757-200? Is it too big?

Max size aircraft that BIRK can take is B757-200, just request runway 01/19. So yes you can :) But BIIS, BIEG, BIVM and BIAR will be a challenge to land at ;)

Thanks for letting us know Óðinn in advance, I have put you as a "maybe", but we have a couple of standby's to step in if needed :) Would be good to have you there if you can make it!

@Everyone, I will also be online on BIRD_CTR 05-07z on Sunday morning and 11-13z in the afternoon to drum up traffic in Iceland!

It's now officially Sunday in Iceland so we can say that this event is today!

You'll have ATC online at the following times:

0500-0700z (Morning Pre-event)
1100-1300z (Afternoon Pre-event)
1800-2100z (Main Event)

BIRD_CTR covers all Icelandic airports top down, including uncontrolled airfields (e.g. BIIS, BIEG, BIVM). In Iceland, you must request startup at AFIS airports, and provide updates on push, taxi, takeoff and landing on the area frequency. More info in the Guide to Iceland.

See you there!
