VATSIM Scandinavia welcomes you to fly and see the original Santa Claus and his home just before the Christmas Holiday.
The Northern Lights and Santa Claus are calling pilots for a journey to the Scandinavian Lapland. Fly and See Santa is the biggest annual Christmas event in the VATSIM skies and is held at three airports in the northernmost part of Europe. Snowy landscapes and slippery runways are beckoning during this magical event at Luleå, Rovaniemi and Tromsø. All three are famed for their beautiful nature, fresh air and winter mystery. During December, these airports are immensly popular destinations for almost 500 charter flights from all over Europe.
December 16 - 2016
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.
