We are glad to invite you to the next "Real-Ops" fly-in. At this time, Moscow Vnukovo airport will be stuffed!
With its more than 80 years history, Vnukovo used to be a military airfield, an airport for royal VIPs, and in the middle of XX century it became the major airport of Moscow, passing this role only in the late 80s. Nowadays Vnukovo is a modern passenger airport with a capacity of 25 mil passengers annually, being a hub for russian UTair and Rossiya airlines, for the first russian low-cost airline Pobeda and the base of "Rossiya" Special Flight Squadron, which performes transportation of the Russian Government.
On the 30th of September from 14:00 up to 18:00 UTC we invite you to fly in and out of the most difficult airport of Moscow Area Center under full ATC coverage. We draw you attention that there are no flights of private aircraft in our booking, however we will be happy to see them in our skies!
Get your charts ready and pour a spare tonn of fuel in your tank - the queus may reach dozens due to traffic congestion during single-runway ops. At present we usually use RNAV STARs in Moscow airports. Be ready to execute them. If your aircraft for any reason does not provide RNAV, do not forget to report it to the ATC! Also, do not forget that in Russia (except Saint-Petersburg FIR), QFE and meters below the transition level are still used. The conversion table of heights and altitudes by QFE and QNH you can find here. Pay attention that controller will give you QFE and height in meters and you should convert them according to the table before set it on MCP.
During flight operations please stick to speed restrictions on departure and arrival routes, as well as the necessity of avoiding restricted areas as published in charts.
Booking is avaliable here. It's allowable to change aircraft types for the same class, e.g. Airbus A319/320/321 within the family or for Boeing 737 family.
See you in the skies of Moscow TMA!
