Slotmania events are designed to test the time management skills of both pilots and ATC.
Via VATPAC's dedicated Slotmania booking system, pilots are invited to book specific departure or arrival slots (or both!) between a selected city pair. It's up to the pilots to be ready for pushback at their booked time or just as in the real world, you might be waiting a while before ATC have another slot available for you.
Same goes for arrivals. If you're either early or late, expect ATC to place you in a hold until they can accommodate you.
What if I don't want to fly a scheduled slot?
Of course, We have only provided details for guidance, however, Once you have booked a slot, You are more than welcome to change your Aircraft type. Just remember, Your Callsign is locked to a slot.
What if I don't book a slot?
You may be up for some holding but we'll find somewhere to put you! We have designed this Slotmania with gaps where our controllers can allocate slots on a first come first serve basis. This allows you to fly What you Want, Where you Want.
Any questions and/or feedback can be directed to Deputy Director, Major Events.
