We are delighted to announce the latest rendition of VATSIM UK’s longest running event.
On Saturday 31st July and Sunday 1st August, Birmingham Airport (EGBB) will host its 15th annual Mid Summer Madness Event. Birmingham Airport will be fully staffed from 1000-1900Z (1100-2000 BST) on both days.
There are no flight bookings, so just turn up and fly to and/or from EGBB in whatever you like, when ever you like and as many times as you like! Please help us celebrate the 15th anniversary of this fantastic event by flying in and out of Birmingham – the skies are guaranteed to be busy around Birmingham!
Most of your controllers and a few of your fellow pilots are also planning to hopefully be sat in the same room. We really hope you can help us make this the best Mid Summer Madness event yet!
This year we’ve again teamed up with some amazing flight simulation software companies. Thanks to the generosity of these fantastic companies, we’re able to offer the following prizes to pilots who fly in or out of Birmingham during the event weekend:
- A2A Simulations – a product of your choice from their store, for FIVE winners.
- Just Flight – a product of your choice from their store for one winner.
- Macco Simulations – 3 copies of their Birmingham scenery and 2 of their Manchester.
- Orbx – a product of your choice from their store (not partner products) for one winner.
- UK2000 Scenery – a product of your choice from their store for one winner.
These prizes will be available to win for pilots for the below:
- One for the pilot who flies the furthest distance whilst connected online to be with us, either departing or arriving EGBB during event hours.
- One for the pilot who flies the most flights in or out of EGBB whilst connected online, with full stop landings during event hours.
- Remaining prizes at random for pilots who fly a full flight online into or out of EGBB during event hours.
We are also hoping to partner the event with some of the UK’s favourite virtual airlines. More information on this to come soon.
Thanks again to our sponsors who have made this possible. Winners will be contacted via the VATSIM-UK forums after the event to claim their prize.
We hope to see you there!
