September last year... "Fly to Vágar and win!" was the first event ever to focus on the Faroe Islands... fast-forward to 2016, and we are at it again!

You are invited to fly from either Reykjavik Airport in Iceland (BIRK) or Stavanger Airport in Norway (ENZV) to Vágar Airport in the Faroe Islands (EKVG) for some exciting AFIS procedures. Experience the dramatic scenery and fresh air of the Faroe Islands, who knows, you might even see a puffin from the cockpit!

All information in the Guide to the Faroe Islands: http://vatsim-scandinavia.org/pilots/airports/iceland

See you on Sunday 6th March between 17-21z.

Don't forget to visit the remote Faroe Islands in the North Sea tomorrow night!

We will have extensive staffing at all participating airports for the majority of this event, including of course, the rare opportunity to fly into EKVG with Vágar Information providing an aerodrome flight information service. You'll also enjoy the local service offered at both Stavanger Sola Airport (ENZV) in south-western Norway and Reykjavik Airport (BIRK) in Iceland.

So make sure you have the Guide to the Faroe Islands on your kneeboard, and we'll catch you online on Sunday 6th March 17-21z!

Well, as usual, the event did not go completely to plan... but that doesn't matter because the most important thing is to have fun! :D 

We had some nice feedback from a "Ben Deakin" about the event, and here are some stats from last night:

Vagar - 25 movements
Sola - 16 movements
Reykjavik - 7 movements

Not part of event, but also contributed:
Keflavik - 3 movements
Flesland - 7 movements

Nice work everyone! Next event for Reykjavik FIR will be the VA-Meeting in support of vACC Switzerland! (staffing request already posted). Also, we have a double S2 checkout this Friday.
