evSUURu.pngOn Sunday, November 11th, from 2200z-0200z (5pm-9pm EDT), the Toronto FIR and the New York ARTCC are partnering to present a crossfire between John F. Kennedy International (KJFK) and Toronto/Lester B. Pearson International (CYYZ). Join us Veterans Day evening as controllers from both sides of the border manage flights between the two facilities (and don't forget to correct for Daylight Savings)!

Hey Brad


Thanks sir!  You were not the only one who was a little nervous.  We seem to do well with "nick of time" LOL




Great event, YYZ. I was a little worried while flight planning as there was NOBODY online, but everyone showed up in the nick of time.

From New York ARTCC,


Thank you all to those who participated in making this event happen! I realize the traffic volume wasn’t quite as high as some events but for a Sunday evening, I think it went well. When ZOB went offline and I asked for routes to avoid the airspace, CZY controllers adapted quickly. I hope to see this level and easiness in coordination in the future!
