We are glad to invite you to the first in this season "Real-Ops" fly-in. Traditionally, the oldest Moscow airport opens Real-Ops series. It is Vnukovo!
Сonstruction works began in 1937, and it was opened on June, 2nd, 1941. Airport 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 27th of September, 2020 from 13:00 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. Today we usually use RNAV STARs in Moscow airports. Be ready to execute them; if your aircraft does not have the RNAV capability for any reason, don't forget to report it to the ATC! Also, we remind you that Russia (except Saint-Petersburg FIR) still utilizes QFE and meters below the transition level. The conversion tables of heights and altitudes for QFE and QNH you can find here. Pay attention that controller will give you QFE and heights in meters and you should convert them according to the tables before setting them on your control panel.
During flight operations please stick to speed and altitude restrictions on departure and arrival routes; also we ask you to familiarise yourself with the restricted areas in the vicinity of the airport.
You are free to change aircraft types for the same class, e.g. Airbus A319/320/321 within the family or for Boeing 737CL/NG families.
See you in the skies of Moscow TMA!
