Lisboa Real Ops 2017 will be the 9th edition of what is the major ever event in Portuguese virtual airspace. It is were your piloting skills will meet ours controller's ones, with a beautiful scenery as background. Lisbon Airport is known for its approach over Tagus River with the "European Golden Gate Bridge", Ponte 25 de Abril linking both shores. On Saturday September 16th, you are invited to choose a flight. As usual, Portugal vACC's controllers will be on duty, covering all ATC positions in Lisboa FIR. From Delivery to Tower, Approach to Route Control, we are expecting to see your transponder return in our radar screen!

|1. What should I do before connecting to the network?
Make sure you are familiarized with the relevant procedures and phraseology so that you, and the others, can take the best out of this event!
|2. What should I do after connecting to the network?
After being connected, make sure that your aircraft isn't connected on top of a previously connected aircraft. If you are, please move to a free stand. Do all your preflight, listen to the ATIS and when you are ready, go for your clearance.
|3. What should I report on first contact with Delivery?
When you first contact Delivery (make sure you have listened to the ATIS first) report: your callsign, your stand (gate), the latest ATIS information (letter) and your requested (cruising) level. (Example: Air Portugal 123, stand 122, information CHARLIE, request ATC clearance to Porto, FL180).
|4. Any tips on first contact?
Listen for at least 10 seconds before transmitting when you first tune to a frequency. Do not use text to get a controller's attention - that will only delay operations. Do not interrupt a transmission. Expect delays. And remember to HAVE FUN!
|5. Should I have crash detection enabled?
No. Do not use crash detection as it is likely that due to high traffic levels Flight Simulator will detect a crash and reset your aircraft's position. If this happens we cannot guarantee that your slot will still be available.
|6. What happens if I am late?
If you happen to be late, connect as you would if you were on time and make a brief reference to that when you request your clearance.
|7. Is there a phraseology manual and audio guide?
Yes...and it is available to download here.
We strongly recommend you to read it through before flying if you are not comfortable with your phraseology.
|8. Do you welcome non-booked flights?
Yes...we welcome all flights, whether or not booked but obviously scheduled flights will have priority, however delays should be no longer than 20 minutes on stand and 45 minutes in the air.
|9. Should I take extra fuel?
Yes. While trying to minimize delays at maximum, we cannot guarantee you that your flight will not be subject to it, hey, it happens in real life too! However, do not expect it to be over 45 minutes.
