VATSIM UK welcomes you back to our frequent event, Gatwick Midweek Madness! Join us for an overload of Gatwick from 1800z to 2100z, expect late landing clearance!
Home to some of Europe's largest airlines, including British Airways, easyJet, Ryanair, TUI, Virgin, and Noweigan - there's something for everyone. Whether you'll be doing a 30 minute hop to Jersey or an 8 hour flight from the Caribbean, you can expect nothing but the best from our air traffic controllers. Expect plenty of land-after clearances and be hard on the brakes, as Gatwick's only runway is pushed to capacity. The event will take place from 1800-2100z every Wednesday apart from the last of each month where we visit a different UK airfield, and it always proves to be a hit with pilots and ATC alike! We hope to see plenty of you joining us on the localiser.
Our feature week is usually held on the last Wednesday of the month, however, this has been brought a week forward to allow Hogmanay fly-in to take place. The feature Midweek Madness will be held on Leeds (EGNM) on Wednesday 23rd December!
