TA Training Academy Early Morning Group Flights - The A - Z of cities tour has now finished. Congratulations to all who managed to take part. Novemeber will see the start of the new tour which takes us to the USA and Canada. The events department has now put the final touches to the first few legs of the tour which is ready to go.

AVSIM scenery library - The avsim scenery library has been taken offline while there tech support team continues to sort out the problems casued after their servers were hacked back in May this year.
The following is an update from the avsim home page:
Yes, the library is offline. You may have noticed that we announced that it was back, but that was a temporary thing. Here's the deal... Yesterday we had to reboot our file library server. When it came back up, it conveniently forgot to bring the NAS disk system back with it. We have been struggling a little bit to get the NAS back, and we expect to have it online tomorrow. We are sorry for the interruption in service, of course, but the community needs to understand that we are still working out the bugs that carry over from the destruction of AVSIM in May. We will get there, but ask for your patience in the meantime.

So how does this affect us? Well this means until the library is brought back online it is possible that the Online Operations Department may not be able to locate any scenery for some of the events. We will try our best to provide you with links where possible, but we do ask that you bear with us. We will report back when the we have some more news for you so keep your eye on the forums.

End of British Summer Time - With the End of British Summer Time comes a small change to events. All event times will now be as follows:

IVAO/VATSIM: 1900 Zulu and Local UK time

Training Academy Early Morning Group Flights: 0700 Zulu and Local UK time
