Light Up America 2018 [2018-06-08] 18:00:00 - 23:00:00

VATUSA is kicking off our participation at FlightSimExpo 2018 with a bang!

The always popular Light Up America event returns as a Live FNO from 2300z - 0400z on June 8th.

We are going to staff as many positions as we can live from the show floor in Las Vegas and want everyone who can't make it to Vegas to join us virtually for one insane night of controlling and flying. Our goal, get all 22 Centers online as well as as many TRACONs and Towers as we can. 

All who are going to FlightSimExpo are welcome to attend live and should register here ->

This will be a FNO for the history books! See you in Vegas!
