  12. It's a classic "make sure you check your time zones" OTS in Winnipeg, as Mike Ignagni is off to fight for his C1 rating! Come fly in on the evening of the 22nd (which just so happens to be the morning of the 23rd for our friends on the other side of the Atlantic) and help him earn that promotion!
  13. It's the big OTS for James Norris - he's going for his C1 rating! Come fly anywhere Winnipeg has to offer in our airspace - from major airports like Winnipeg and Saskatoon to the small fields you've never heard of until you accidentally entered the wrong letter on your airport code in SimBrief. Good luck, James!
  14. Congratulations, Josh! The team in Winnipeg, especially myself, looks forward to working with you to continue growing our relationship with Toronto.
  15. Why not both? Congratulations to Tim and Todd on their new ratings earned in today's OTS! A special thanks to everyone who flooded Winnipeg with traffic for this one.
  16. Man, I would've posted it FOR YOU! LOL, congrats!
  17. Dean's legacy of running Toronto is a long one and a very productive one. Wishing nothing but the best in whatever may be next, friend!
  18. Félicitations Alexandre! Welcome to the world of being a chief.
  19. It's time for another OTS in the 'Peg - this time, Tim Lowe is on a mission to earn his S2 rating. Fly at either of Winnipeg's airports (CYWG or CYAV) and help him work for that promotion!
  20. IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN! CYVR is sending CYWG some pilots eagerly looking for cold, snow and ice! (Why!?) Both airports and ZVR/ZEG/ZWG centers will be online to direct them into CYWG from 2100z-0100z on Saturday, 13 Feb 2021 (3-7pm Central). Preferred route if you're going to fly: ADSIX KESTA YDC J500 YXC MEDAK YYN J500 VLR AMBIL2 See you all there!
  21. Congratulations to James Norris - Winnipeg's latest recipient of an S3 rating! A great exam tonight - and thanks to everyone who came out to fly.
  22. Hi Piotr! This has been fixed now - the Eastern time is correct, the Zulu time has been fixed.
  23. The Winnipeg FIR is pleased to announce that Todd Blanchette has been selected as the FIR's new Events Coordinator, ZWG4. Todd brings a wealth of experience to the role, and his time within the FIR has shown his dedication to Winnipeg along with the entire VATSIM Network. Congratulations, Todd!
