Holiday Returns at Cincinatti


DATE: 3 January 2015 ~ TIME: 4pm~8pm EST

Cincinatti Holiday Returns Policy - Now that Christmas is over and you have a pile of "Pesky Unwanted" Flightplans that resemble that horribly ugly Christmas Sweater and Aunt Lucille knit you seven years ago you find yourself in need of a place to return them. We can help. Any flightplans that you received this year that you don't want can be returned to our returns center on the 3rd of January, 2015 between 21:00z and 01:00z [4pm~8pm EST]. We'll be staffed up to the 9s to make sure your returns process is easy and painless so that you can get back underway with just the right flightplans that you always wanted. For further Return Policy terms and conditions, please see one of our friendly controllers. Thank you!

Staff News

For all who may not yet be aware, please welcome me in congratulating Mike Watkins on his appointment as the vZID DATM. Mike was chosen not only for his devotion to vZID but his overall love of and commitment to the hobby, his willingness to help other controllers and pilots, and his desire for vZID to continue to be an active part of the VATUSA Division. I have no doubt that I have made the best choice for vZID and I'm glad he accepted the position.

Also, congratulate  Lloyd Boyette on his appointment as Events Coordinator. Lloyd has a long history with VATSIM and is CEO of his own VA, Vector Airlines. Lloyd is always willing to offer a helping hand. I expect we will soon be seeing some event activity giving us all the opportunity to get together and enjoy some fun, entertaining time controlling.
